The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

J. Marion Sims (1813 – 1883) is considered one of the most famous American surgeons of the 19th century and is generally acknowledged as the founder of modern gynecologic surgery. His rise to prominence began with his development of the first consistently successful operation for the cure of vesicovaginal fistula. Attempts to cure this condition had been tried by previous generations of surgeons without significant success. Dr. Sims was lauded as an innovative surgical leader who advanced treatments in women’s health.
The J. Marion Sims Lectureship is presented annually at the AUGS Annual Scientific Meeting to continue to educate today’s gynecologic surgeon about the importance of supporting and encouraging innovation within women’s health.
