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.
It’s unfortunate that we are unable to carry on with our physical meeting this year again due to the pandemic. MUGIS prefers a physical meeting with live workshops to have a better impact.
We hope to have our meeting next year with vaccinations at a high rate and hopefully, by next year it will be safe to meet face to face again.
Till we meet again
