Donate Your Photos To SAGES

Have you ever tried to search for stock photos of minimally invasive surgery? It’s neither a fun nor productive experience and the Communications Committee needs the help of SAGES members.

SAGES is embarking upon a multimedia rebranding experience, starting with our web site.  We find ourselves of need of the following types of images:

  • MIS OR Suites and/or equipment
  • MIS Teams, in action or casual
  • Surgical Education, mentoring and similar
  • Any other image you would like to donate that you think reflects SAGES’ mission:

The mission of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons is to improve quality patient care through education, research, innovation and leadership, principally in gastrointestinal and endoscopic surgery.

If you own any of these images or are willing to take them (with permission from your Powers That Be) and donate them to SAGES, we would be UNBELIEVABLY appreciative. Please use the form below to send us up to 5 images at a time.

Larger images (960 pixels wide or greater) and higher DPI (72 or greater) are easier to work with, but we’re not picky. We can figure out a use for any size of image.
