Indonesia is a big country, it’s the fourth populated country in the world and is number fifteenth of the largest country in the world. We have roughly 70 Millions Female in reproductive age, but less than 20 percent of our Gynecologist are competence in Hysteroscopy and laparoscopy. So many colleagues of mine still doing blind D & C.
Our introduction with endoscopy start in the late 80’s when Prof Ichramsjah is coming back from England (with Jeffcoate) and bring one Wisap full laparoscopic hysteroscopic tower and instrument. And in early 90’s, Prof Jacob have opportunity to study in German (with Kurt Semm) and also to Brussels (with Jacques Donnez). After his return to Indonesia many Indonesian OG learn this technique for the first time from them. Since then many Indonesian gyne went to Leuven (with Jacques Donnez) and some to Nashville (with James Daniell) in the late 90’s.
As the Course Director for IGES Training Center at The presidential Hospital – Indonesia Army Central Hospital and on behalf of the IGES I look forward for the event in Barcelona this May 2017. Many of us want to come there to learn and to share our experience. See you in Barcelona !!
