About the Journal

The Journal of Visualized Surgery

The Journal of Visualized Surgery (ISSN 2221-2965; J Vis Surg; JOVS; jovs.amegroups.com) is an international peer-reviewed journal focused on Visualized Surgery. It aims to promote the development of Visualized Surgery around the world by providing a professional platform for the sharing of experience in Visualized Surgery between peers so that all patients may benefit. Hence, the focus will be on instructional and educational video clips, photos, schematics of Visualized Surgical procedures, rather than lengthy text. In addition, JOVS strongly emphasizes the multi-disciplinary nature of modern surgery and requests that articles highlight the roles of each member of the multi-disciplinary surgical team (including surgeon, trainees, anesthetists, physicians of all specialties, nurses, physiotherapists, other allied health professionals, and so on as appropriate).
