About SASES

Our Mission The Society was established to promote high standards of endoscopic surgery in South Africa. It will disseminate knowledge and training via academic meetings, training courses and sponsorships.  It will formulate and provide guidelines for basic and advanced laparoscopy. It will advise and assist official bodies such as South African Medical Association and the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) with credentialing issues and ethical issues arising from the practice of endoscopic surgery. It will seek to co-operate and interact with the other South African surgical societies and with international laparoscopic societies.
