Welcome to the

WashU Surgical Video Education Website

Surgical Education Mission

This website represents our passion for delivering video education to residents and surgeons with the core principle of improving patient outcomes. We realize that practicing surgeons tremendously value continuous training to provide the topmost level of care for patients, especially when surgical innovations evolve at an exponential rate. Our program targets residents and practicing surgeons by providing a real and genuine experience of continued medical education through the visual medium of video.

Through our educational and translational program, we provide advanced continuing education from master surgeons, who reveal their “recipes” for achieving success in providing the best standards of patient care. Our master surgeons are recognized for their clinical and technical excellence in surgery. We believe that these surgeons deserve the best content production and educational program for disseminating their expertise to improve healthcare around the world. 


We started developing our video and educational program in 2011 through a grant from the Henry M. Jackson Foundation for advancing military medicine and deployment of an educational resource called Nerve Surgery (nervesurgery.wustl.edu) at Washington University. We began filming and producing surgical videos as part of this project and overtime, received outstanding feedback from the nerve community. From this feedback, we took time to reassess our videos to develop an education program and launched our new initiative. Because of you, our viewer, as well as your feedback, our educational program has progressed into this website.
