AGES Focus Meeting 2019
2 August @ 7:00 am - 3 August @ 5:00 pm AEST
in conjunction with The World Endometriosis Society
2nd & 3rd August 2019
Grand Hyatt, Melbourne
It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the AGES / WES Focus Meeting 2019, “The Limits and
Limitations of Surgery and Endometriosis” to be held on the 2nd & 3rd of August 2019 at the
Grand Hyatt in Melbourne, Australia.
The program will cover a broad range of topics including bowel, urological, diaphragmatic and
chest disease in endometriosis, along with fertility and ovarian surgery. There will also be sessions
on techniques and evidence, as well as the complex areas of pain management before,
after, and instead of surgery. We will also look at the limits of our treatment options and what
to do when surgery and pharmacologic treatments fail the women.
It is not the first time that AGES and WES have collaborated and together we delivered the
extremely successful 10th World Congress on Endometriosis in 2008 – which was also held in
Melbourne. This meeting we will have a strong clinical focus around surgery and examine the
risks and opportunities for endometriosis surgeons and clinicians in our region.
We have an exceptional international faculty including Horace Roman from France, Sun-Wei
Guo from China and Moamar Al-Jefout from Dubai, as well as highly regarded Australasian
surgeons and scientists.
We look forward to seeing you in Melbourne as we explore ‘The Limits and Limitations of Surgery
