Impact workshop cropped2015 Montreal Workshop

From crude forceps and simple saws, to minimally invasive techniques and nano medicine, the surgical craft has always been a technically oriented discipline. New instruments, techniques and procedures have all shaped the identity of the surgical profession. This evolutionary process is on-going and due for a fundamental reconsideration of the definition of the surgical professional domains and jurisdictions.
