This international event hosted by the IAGE was quite striking as people could relay live 3D surgeries 15 kms away and also HD surgery never seen before in India or abroad. The foreign audience too appreciated the show. Dr. Prakash Trivedi was declared as the President of FOGSI for 2015. It is the largest body of gynaecologists and obstetricians.
