Benefits of Membership


Surgeons join because SAGES is an unconventional surgical association in the best sense of the word.

It is a collegial group in which newcomers are welcomed like long-term members of the “family.” SAGES members “networked” before that word had been invented.

If you participate, you are valuable. If you work for the Society, you are invited into its leadership circle.

SAGES is inclusive while preserving quality. It is statistically more difficult to have a paper accepted for oral presentation at a SAGES meeting than almost any other group. But new ideas are welcomed.
