Dear IAGESIANS,

It is heartening to note that this year Fellowship course in Advanced Laparoscopic surgery (FALS - Hernia) under TAGES is going to be held in Ahmedabad under the able leadership of Dr. Sunil Popat.

IAGES is aware of the enormous and ever changing world of Minimal Access surgery and has been in the forefront in organizing various academic courses & Fellowship.

FIAGES, E FIAGES, FAGIE and FALS courses are flagship of IAGES and innumerable Surgeon members of IAGES all over the country have been benefitted from these courses. FALS courses on specific organ and specialties are recent additions to our academic activity. It is always a tough job to organize an advanced laparoscopic course but it is gratifying to see many stalwarts of IAGES coming forward and taking the responsibility of organizing these courses.

Dr. Sunil Popat, the Honorary secretary of IAGES is known for his organizing abilities and is a very dedicated member and there is no doubt that the FALS - Hernia course under his able leadership shall be a memorable event. I request all desirous members having interest in herniology to take advantage of the course and register at the earliest.

My sincere wishes to the organizing committee for the success of the course.

Long live IAGES.

President, IAGES
