FROM THE DESK OF THE AAGL PRESIDENT
The AAGL and FMIGS Boards have assisted ABOG in completing the MIGS Focused Practice Designation Proposal. If secured, this designation would allow ABOG and other entities to identify and recognize high volume experienced MIGS surgeons. This has profound, positive implications for the future of MIGS and is a high priority from both the AAGL Board and FMIGS Board.
The proposal is now posted for public comment on the ABMS site until July 25, 2018. We strongly encourage you to support the MIGS Focused Practice Designation proposal and encourage you to submit your favorable comments by following the link below:

I would like to thank Dr. Magdy Milad, MIGS Focused Practice Liaison, for his dedicated efforts in making this a reality.
