About Us

Meet Our President

Dr. Pramod Garg

GI endoscopy is central to managing a large and diverse variety of gastrointestinal diseases be it pancreaticobiliary, luminal or liver diseases. Endoscopy is what makes the specialty of gastroenterology the most attractive and much sought after. Interventions such as EUS guided therapy, POEM, ESD and endo-bariatric procedures have revolutionized the management in a minimally invasive and safe manner and expanded our therapeutic armamentarium. SGEI has carved out a niche for itself by promoting the art and science of GI endoscopy in India.

The innovative skills of our esteemed members and their significant contribution to the field has put the Indian GI endoscopy landscape at the forefront on the world map. The mandate of SGEI is to train the young generation of endoscopists and inculcate in them ethical values and the motto of  ‘patient first’, to disseminate knowledge and best global practices, to forge international alliances for education and training, and   promote clinical research to generate new knowledge

Our endeavour is to continuously enhance the global footprint of SGEI, bring in new and novel technologies for the benefit of patients, set standards for optimal and cost effective utilization of the endoscopy in patient management, establish a multicentre collaborative research platform, and liaison with the regulatory bodies for evidence-based practice of GI Endoscopy in the country. It is my honour to be the President of this great society and I will do my best to serve the organisation and contribute to its growing success. I assure you that we will continue to strive hard to achieve excellence in setting highest standards for patient care, training, and research.

Meet Our secretary

Dr. Rajesh Puri

I am humbled to lead our prestigious Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy of India & I thank everyone for having faith in me for this honor. Our society has approximately 1950 members and my wish is to make our family bigger. I would need help from state bearers to expand the membership in their areas. Academic heads running the DM, and DNB programs can help by ensuring that all post-graduates become SGEI members once they finish their training. We need to build a better association with the Gastroenterology societies of SAARC countries by exchanging educational programs on virtual & physical formats during the conferences and short-term training of members of society.
