SGS Mission

The mission of the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons is to promote excellence in gynecologic surgery through acquisition of knowledge and improvement of skills, advancement of basic and clinical research, and professional and public education.


The Society prides itself in mentoring young gynecologic surgeons and investigators and this is reflected with the founding of both the Fellows' Pelvic Research Network (FPRN®) and the Systematic Review Groups (SRG) in 2007, both groups held in high esteem by other medical societies.
