What the surgeon of the future needs to read today…

Surgical Innovation (SRI): Advances in Minimally Invasive Surgical Science, Technology, and Training focuses on the revolution that minimally invasive surgical techniques, new instruments and new technologies like AI, digital surgery, augmented and virtual reality and precision medicine bring to the art, science, outcome and business of surgery. This publication prepares both new and experienced surgeons, physicians, engineers and technology experts to think and work in "the operating room of the future," while helping them to face the challenges of learning new techniques, understanding and adapting to new technologies, maintaining surgical competencies, and applying surgical outcome data to their practices.

Written by leading international medical and surgical practitioners from specialties including general surgery, gynecology, urology, cardiothoracic surgery, vascular surgery, head and neck surgery, neurosurgery, otolaryngology, orthopedics, and pediatric surgery, the perceptive and incisive articles highlight those practices and technologies that will change your practice and broadly impact the field of Surgery.

SRI covers rapidly emerging topics, often found nowhere else, including:

Clinical Practice

  • New Procedures (for example, NOTTS, NOTES, image guided surgery)
  • New Instruments and Tools (medical devices, digital surgery, robotics, fluorescence)
  • Practice Management
  • New Guidelines
  • Cross-Specialty Synergies

Research on the Cutting Edge

  • Robotics
  • Energy Sources
  • Operating Room of the Future
  • Materials and Prostheses
  • Computer Science, Data Science and AI
  • Digital Surgery Ecosystems
  • Biologic Investigations
  • Personalized Medicine in surgery

Surgical Education

  • Surgical Training and Performance Metrics
  • Surgical Simulation
  • Telemedicine
  • Augmented, Virtual and Mixed reality, including the Metaverse
  • Introduction of New Techniques and Technologies into Clinical Practice
  • History of Surgical Innovations and Innovators

Surgical Innovation (SRI): Advances in Minimally Invasive Surgical Science, Technology, and Training is dedicated to becoming the core reference both signaling and highlighting all aspects and innovations supporting surgical practice for surgeons and for those active in the surgical specialties; but also for other physicians, engineers and technology experts.

Each issue of SRI offers unique and peer-reviewed articles from the vanguard of clinical practice but also from a wider innovational climate surrounding surgery: noteworthy and innovative research from the basic sciences, computational medicine, medical informatics and AI, state-of-the-art in surgical education, and useful insights into the business and practice of surgery. The journal gives the reader perceptive and incisive articles that highlight those practices and technologies that will change surgical practice today and revolutionize surgery for the decades to come. We -the Journal Editors and joint Editorial Board- encourage our readers to actively participate into the community of innovaters and given the scope, aim for acceptable review times.
