FSIE president and founder Lee Swanstrom started training surgical fellows over 20 years ago. Every year at SAGES we get together for the annual reunion to celebrate our friendship and mentorship. Over time the group has grown but remains quite a tight knit family! Tonight we enjoyed an exceptional turnout as more than 2 dozen of our members have traveled to Houston to support SAGES and present their work to an international audience. The fellows have been an integral part of FSIE since its inception in 2010 including our board members. Together we share a life long dedication to improving the quality of surgery and a continual commitment to push the boundaries of surgical innovation.
