From the Desk of President's Message IAGE - Dr. S Krishnakumar
I am honoured, but feel extremely blessed to be taking over as the President of IAGE, which is scaling new heights, with strong foundation and great work by all past presidents and members of their team. Endoscopic surgery is synonymous with women care today and we cannot dissociate it from offering the same to women the world over. The COVID pandemic pushed most of the health issues including Gynaecological endoscopic surgery to take a back seat. Resilient as we are, all of us have reimagined, reshaped ourselves to restart. We have all risen above the challenge, we all have learnt the new way to connect, stay engaged, innovate, learn and share.
It's a challenging time but I am sure I will be able to instil new ideas and programs during my term for the benefit of not only teaching our member newer aspects, but also educate the population and offer them benefits of conservative minimal access surgery. The goals can only be achieved with a supportive dedicated team and I am extremely satisfied with the members of my managing committee, which has the perfect blend of youth and experience. I have learned a lot being closely associated with some great leaders and friends and am sure they will be always there by my side during my journey as the President and help me achieve whatever I have dreamt to do for IAGE during my extended term this year.
Me and my team will be always available for any help and guidance and would welcome any suggestion for the benefit of the association.
Dr. S Krishnakumar
President, IAGE 2020-21
