AAGL is the leading association promoting minimally invasive gynecologic surgery among surgeons worldwide.
In 1971, Dr. Jordan M. Phillips and ten charter members founded the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists. An early adopter of the laparoscopic surgical technique, Dr. Phillips was a visionary who imagined an infinite future for gynecologic surgery. True to his prescience, our organization expanded rapidly around the globe and we came to represent more than laparoscopy. Today we are known universally by our acronym, “AAGL,” and we’ve evolved to epitomize our motto of “Elevating Gynecologic Surgery.”
Beginning with the inaugural International Congress on Gynecologic Laparoscopy in 1972, our members and affiliates gather annually to share the latest in education, science, and technology that affect all aspects Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery. With more than 7,500 members across 110 countries, we have become a truly global organization. We proudly count the world’s foremost authorities in gynecologic surgery, procedural pioneers, and medical thought leaders among our membership.
