About ASSA

The Association of Surgeons of South Africa (ASSA) was founded in 1943 as a non-profit organization and is the body that represents General Surgeons in South Africa. Other specific surgical interest groups such as SASES, VASSA, TSSA and the CSSA are members of the ASSA executive committee and represented by ASSA on the South African Medical Association (SAMA) boards.

Our members represent the majority of General Surgeons in South Africa. ASSA aims to act constructively to address relevant issues. The better represented ASSA is by its membership the stronger its voice becomes.
