It gives me a great pleasure to announce the Launch of our Middle East Society for Gynecological Endoscopy (MESGE). This is a culmination of a true need the area is expressing for developing and enriching the fine art of laparoscopy in the Gynecological arena. I recount the numerous conversations, discussions and wealth of ideas I had with my dear colleagues during my country visits, and I am truly proud that it has now materialized into the establishment of this society which will work hard to address the issues that arise and the future that awaits.
The MESGE will strive to bridge experience and expertise within the region, set localized model standards for training and skills actively encourage and support research and bring home learning from global affiliations.
Last but never least, a sincere and honest thank you to the founding members and executive board who have injected time, health, money and wealth of passion to bring life to the MESGE.
Prof. Mohamed Ibrahim, M.D
President of the MESGE
