The Economics of Global Healthcare:  A View Through International Surgeons

There are significant changes in, as well as uncertainty about, the delivery and implementation of healthcare nationally, and around the world. In order to adapt to these changes, we must continue to hear the physician’s point of view on impact on patient care.

The Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons has taken a leading role in the development of safety, quality and educational aspects of Minimally Invasive Surgery not only in our country, but also internationally with the goal of improving patient outcomes.
