The idea to establish an upper GI surgical society was mooted on the 23rd September 2012 and on the 27th of March 2013, the society was formally registered.
With the aim of bringing together Upper GI Consultants and General Surgeons who have an interest in Upper GI Surgery practising in Malaysia, the society had the following objectives:
All surgeons, doctors and allied health personnel with interests in upper GI surgery are welcome to join the society. Activities and updates are made available to members regularly.
With the current pandemic, I would like to take this opportunity to announce that we will postpone this year’s conference to 2nd-3rd October 2021, venue being Johor Bahru. I hope we get to meet in a safer environment next year and restart our scientific conference once again. Hope to see everyone in 2021.
