AAGL (Advancing Minimally Invasive Gynecology Worldwide) is a professional association of laparoscopic surgeons dedicated to the research and advancement of minimally invasive gynecologic procedures. AAGL was founded by Jordan M. Phillips, M.D., in 1971 as the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL). Its newer name reflects its international scope, and currently it has over 7000 members spread over 110 countries. The laparoscope, a form of endoscope, often allows surgery to be done with smaller incisions and faster recovery (that is, in a minimally invasive way) compared with older open techniques.
