Surgical education, Surgeon-led, Crowd-sourced, Free to the end-user

About Us - help us to make a difference!

SurgTech is a social organisation, run by members for members.
We are registered as a company limited by guarantee in England.
We are establishing boards to represent specialities across surgery, and countries across the world.
We will also invite contributors from industry and from professional and educational bodies.

Aside from running SurgTech, we are here for our members, so keep in touch and help us make a valuable resource for surgeons and others the world over.

We aim to facilitate surgical education

We are setting out to do this using electronic media and systems to deliver content free-of-charge via computers and mobile devices to the surgical community.
You too can create and deliver quality surgical education, and we can make it easy (and free of financial overheads!).

SurgTech have the experience in the technical aspects - media capture, editing, hosting, and dissemination in a manner accessible to all.

Video is easy, but we are establishing solutions for all manner of electronic media.
If you have content (whatever the format) that you want to release to the surgical community, then get in touch and we will help.
