SurgyTec, at heart a YouTube for surgeons, is a privately held company based in Rotterdam, Netherlands. It aims to become a global community and video-sharing site for surgeons to show off their newly minted skills. It makes it easy for medical professionals to upload videos or slideshows and share those with the community. We can search for videos by specialty, organ/region, tissue, etiology, operation type, or technique. According to their mission statement:
Many surgeons perform original and high-quality techniques in their operating room and equally many surgeons would like to learn from these new and inspiring techniques. Up till now it was very difficult, time consuming and expensive to take a look in each others operating room and share practical knowledge, tips and tricks.
This seems like the space where Medgadget’s only original surgical video, showing off the novel closure method known as the “Chopstick Technique“, would have been featured.
