SLS Name Change Announcement

The Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons
is now

The SLS Board of Directors recently approved our new name. While the term “Laparoendoscopic” was intended to represent all MIS disciplines and technologies when SLS was formed in December of 1990, it no longer is consistent with current terminology and search terms. Our website and materials will be updated to reflect our new name and logo.

SLS is a unique multispecialty and multidisciplinary organization with a global reach. Our current and past officers and members reflect interest and leadership in Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery and represent the knowledge and opinion leaders (KOLs) and pioneers in robotics and computer assisted surgery, surgical simulation, laparoscopy, endoscopy, and minimally invasive surgery.

Our updated logo is reminiscent of the Society’s original logo at the time of its founding in 1990 and reflects our new name. We will continue to be known as SLS.
We are witnessing an exciting and transformative period of unprecedented change in healthcare. The pace of change is virtually continuous with clear signs of a revolution on the horizon. Thank you for your ongoing support of SLS and its mission. Join with us as we create the future through collaboration and education.

Raymond J. Lanzafame, MD, MBA
Executive Director & Scientific Chair
