Dear Collegues and Friends,

On behalf of the organising comittee, I would like to welcome you to the 1st TGED- Tønsberg Gynaecologic Endoscopic Days September 7 – 9, 2017.  Following the developments in laparoscopy from my first laparoscopic appendectomy with a simple laparoscope in Germany in 1989, attending the 1st ESGE  conference in 1995 and AAGL 20 years ago, has been a fascinating journey.  During my time in Norway from 2006 and at Gynekologisk avdeling, Kvinnesenteret, Tønsberg Hospital Trust from 2010, there has been major developments in laparoscopic surgery, implementation of the National Norwegian Gynecologic Endoscopy Register (NGER) and focus on Quality Improvement.

We are therefore proud to present the world leaders in gynaecologic endoscopic surgery at our congress in Tønsberg,  Norway, - and are thankful for their contribution to our common vision: ‘Women deserve to undergo surgery of the highest possible quality with lowest possible complication rates’.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Yours sincerely,

Dr.med Andreas Putz and organising comittee

Congress Pre-Course

Dear TGED-participants,
We would like to invite you to our Congress pre-course in Medical Team Training, designed for both registrars and consultants. This is a 4 hour course that includes a simulation scenario with acute massive hemorrhage, focus on closed-loop communication, hands-on training with live video coverage and debrief.

The course will be held at the Simulation Centre at Vestfold Hospital Trust. This is a unique opportunity to recreate a clinical scenario in a simulation setting and learn more about team training and closed-loop communication – skills that every gynecological surgeon should master.

Please make sure to tick off the box “Congress pre-course” if you want to attend the pre-course. Note that the pre-course is mandatory for Norwegian registrars/LIS (DNLF-approval) and that there will be limited space for enrollment.

With kind regards on behalf of the Congress Committee,
Dr. med. Andreas Putz
