ENT Masterclass®


Cyber Text Book on Operative Surgery

4th Edition, October 2015.

ENT Masterclass® continues in its philosophy to provide free educational resources nationally and internationally. We now present the Fourth Edition of ‘Cyber Textbook on Operative Surgery’. We have added a new section for Paediatric ENT and updated the Facial Plastics and Basic ENT Skills section for medical students and some additional surgical videos. I would like to thank the co-editors, Mr Sid Nagala and Mr Mahmoud Daoud for their help with the current edition. 

For the benefit of the 'intensive scholars' we have placed "music pods" YouTube links, between the chapters to feed your souls when you need a break....enjoy!

Some of us would remember ‘Operative Surgery by Rob & Smith’, which was very popular in the 1980s. Keeping up with times, here is an attempt to get together the immense resources available in the public domain on the internet, YouTube, Google and various academic websites, which are the main sources that have helped in this project. We are thankful to the numerous contributors from all over the world. There are approximately 400 free videos which are mostly under 10 minutes each and demonstrate techniques which may vary according to local preferences and so does the background music!

ENT Masterclass® does not advocate any particular surgeon or technique in this collection and it is up to the viewers to make their own judgements and utilise what they think is appropriate.

We hope that this resource will be an evolutionary platform and I would request viewers to email their votes/comments on individual videos at: secretary@entmasterclass.com   On the basis of the feedback we shall hope to edit the list and would welcome contributions to add to the collection.

We hope you benefit from this venture.
