Fundamental Use of Surgical Energy (FUSE)

The Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) developed the Fundamental Use of Surgical EnergyTM (FUSE) program to meet the need for increased education and training in the principles and properties of operating electrosurgical instruments safely. SAGES encourage learning and applying these fundamental skills in order to ensure a minimal standard of care for all patients undergoing surgery. FUSE was designed to certify that a successful candidate has demonstrated the knowledge fundamental to the safe use of surgical energy-based devices in the operating room, endoscopic suite and other procedural areas.
