Welcome to the BGES Website

The Belgian Group for Endoscopic Surgery is ready for the future!

The BGES is the scientific committee dedicated to the study, teaching and promotion of minimally-invasive surgery in Belgium. It is affiliated with the Royal Belgian Society of Surgery and works closely with the Belgian Association of Surgical Trainees.

The board organizes a number of workshops and hands-on activities for surgical residents and trained surgeons.

Also in 2020-2021 BGES will continue to organize three evening sessions, a biennial congress, and a biennial congress trip.

It has been one of the most dynamic laparoscopic scientific societies since its creation in 1991.
