About WebSurg

A website created by surgeons for surgeons!

WebSurg is IRCAD’s online university, completely free of charge. It was launched by Professor Jacques Marescaux and his team at the European Institute of TeleSurgery (EITS) in 2000 in Strasbourg. It is a charge-free website specialized in minimally invasive surgery and dedicated to the promotion of medical and surgical training skills. It was created by surgeons for surgeons, in order to help them with their training and allow them to communicate with surgeons and experts from all over the world. It quickly became the international online reference for surgical training in minimally invasive surgery.

Online university for surgeons

Multimedia content is published on the website on a monthly basis, targeting 12 specialties and 5 technologies of minimally invasive surgery: general and digestive surgery, pediatric surgery, thoracic surgery, robotic surgery, gynecologic surgery etc.

Weekly meetings are organized with the scientific and editorial committee of WebSurg in order to select the media and sections that to be published on the website each month.

Most of the content published on WebSurg is produced directly by the IRCAD institute and its partners. Contributions sent by international surgeons are also published on the website.
