One way to keep the momentum going is to have constantly greater goals ..... Michael Korda

TOGS (Thane Obstetrics & Gynaecological Society) was formerly known as ATG (Association of Thane Gynaecologists). The name change was necessitated by membership to FOGSI !

The year 2013 marks the birth of Association of Thane Gynaecologists - ATG.

Some of us gynecologists started meeting informally to discuss the latest advances in our field as well as to solve each other's problems and difficulties. Gradually the interest and the attendance in our group discussions increased, so we decided to expand our horizon, thus making available this benefit to all gynecologists from Thane district. We can say with pride that in its pioneering year itself, ATG was a 190 members strong group. Our main aim is to promote academic activities such as CMEs, workshops, conferences, health camps, health awareness in Schools & Colleges etc leading to enhancement of our knowledge which in turn leads to betterment of patient care.

All work and no play never benefited anyone, hence we are equally involved in conducting cultural, social and sports events like "Euphoria", "Jubilation", "Docathon", etc. to increase the bonhomie, create a sense of fraternity amongst our members and add spice to their lives!
