WebSurg : The virtual University For Surgeons

Created in 2000, WeBSurg (websurg.com) was entirely put together by professionals. It has been peer-reviewed, accredited and endorsed by International Scientific Societies.



WeBSurg combines:

  • top-of-the-line quality broadband multimedia, which is especially used to broadcast pre-recorded surgical interventions;
  • worldwide access in 7 languages (French, English, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, Russian and Portuguese);
  • access to all, including developing countries, as the website is completely charge-free.

In the field of minimally invasive surgery, WeBSurg stands as the most advanced Virtual University available to all.

WeBSurg focuses on all minimally invasive surgery-related specialities, under the supervision of an international editorial scientific committee made up of 350 renowned surgeons. The scientific surgical content of WeBSurg uses web-based multimedia technologies to their fullest extent. The content targets surgical techniques combined with illustrations, animations, numerous videos (including 2340 surgical videos, among which 700 full HD, 1550 lectures, as well as 790 expert interviews – up to January 2017).

The website is updated on a monthly basis. WeBSurg gathers 355 000 members and counting. It has become the world’s top online reference for the training of residents and senior registrars in surgical specialization. In September 2008, WeBSurg became the first High Definition (HD) educational website.

Since December 2016, most of the videos have become available in High Definition for free.
