Abstract

A surgical training program is much like an apprenticeship in which knowledge is passed from the skilled surgeon to the more junior. Often in learning these skills, certain nuances are assumed. The names and uses of surgical instruments are often not included in any surgical dialogue. This publication will hopefully clear up knowledge gaps in surgical positioning, instruments, and techniques. It is certainly not a treatise but aims to stimulate interest and enthusiasm for basic surgical principles.
