Safer surgical care during the COVID-19 pandemic

Collaboration, research, data and discussion to optimise the frontline delivery of surgical care in real-time

The COVID-19 pandemic is more than a respiratory disease

Based on the Chinese and Italian experiences we anticipate unprecidented demand on frontline healthcare workers, ventilators and intensive care beds.

This will severely impact our ability to provide safe and effective care for thousands of surgical patients who need these resources.

PanSurg is a global initiative to rapidly develop frontline solutions to these challenges.


Our mission

PanSurg was created in recognition of the unparalleled challenges currently facing healthcare systems around the world from the COVID-19 pandemic. PanSurg is a global hub for surgeons and related professionals to share experiences, policy, data and research for the delivery of safe, effective surgery during the pandemic. We aim to make a difference to frontline surgical care in real-time.

As COVID-19 spreads beyond borders, it is vital that we draw on our collective experiences quickly and intelligently to serve our patients safely and effectively.

Flexibility and learning are central to effective adaptation so we have created a space for real-time sharing of work and ideas to support safe surgical practice globally in the context of this pandemic.
