SurgyTec: Gain by sharingSurgyTec is all about the philosophy 'gain by sharing'. Share your best with the community and you will get unexpected feed back. Hard comments, sincere followers agreeing with you, strong opponents knowing better. And than you are offered the possibility to improve your message, perhaps even your technique itself, making the patient benefit. That is the idea. So start sharing.

Optimal sharing of knowledge will result in more efficient learning which almost directly leads to better patient care. And only if you allow others to disagree with you, will you have the opportunity to learn most. Especially from adverse reactions, unexpected support, sincere comments, remarks between to respected other colleagues making the coin drop in your box.
To enable all this and more we are convinced of the importance of the SurgyTec community tools provided on our platform. So feel invited and join in.
