Introducing "SAGES Tips and Tricks of the Top 21", a companion collection to the highly popular "Top 21 Procedures Every Practicing Surgeon Should Know."

While the original Top 21 covers the basic surgical techniques commonly encountered by surgeons, the new Tips and Tricks collection delves deeper into the commonly seen challenges faced by surgeons. Each main topic features one or more videos covering such scenarios as:

  • Controlling hemorrhage
  • Management of complications
  • Abnormal anatomy
  • Challenging situations
  • Tips and tricks in performing common and uncommon procedures
  • And much more

Over 100 individual narrated videos provide a wealth of information to help prepare the surgeon for the unexpected, and to improve patient outcomes.
