Behind The Knife: The Surgery Podcast

Behind the Knife is a podcast aimed for everyone interested in not only an in-depth look at the broad range of surgical topics, but a "behind the scenes" look at the interesting, controversial and humanistic side of surgery from some of the giants in the field. Come along with Kevin Kniery, Jason Bingham, John McClellan and Scott Steele on a journey that explores all the disciplines of General Surgery in this informal discussion and interview format. We feel that this is the perfect medium not only to cover important educational topics for all stages of your professional career, but allow you to listen to a first-hand account of not only where we have been from those that pioneered the way, but also an opportunity to explore where we are now and are headed in the not so distant future from surgical leaders.

Dr. Potts is a leader in surgical education, having taken on roles with the American Board of Surgery and currently with the ACGME. He is known to be open with his thoughts on surgical education, so we posed him some tough questions about 'Controversies in Surgical Education'. We hope you enjoy these stimulating topics!

Join us for the 5th episode of our joint Journal Club series with Annals of Surgery. This time our guest is Dr. Mark Besselink, Professor at the University of Amsterdam and founder of the Dutch Pancreatic Cancer Study Group. 
 
He led two new, practice-changing studies on laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy: 
 
1) DIPLOMA, an observational study of laparoscopic vs. open distal pancreatectomy for pancreatic cancer focusing on oncologic outcomes: https://journals.lww.com/annalsofsurgery/Abstract/publishahead/Minimally_Invasive_versus_Open_Distal.95844.aspx
 
2) LEOPARD, a randomized controlled trial of laparoscopic vs. open distal pancreatectomy for any disease type: https://journals.lww.com/annalsofsurgery/Abstract/publishahead/Minimally_Invasive_Versus_Open_Distal.95444.aspx 
 
Join us as we discuss the findings of these studies, the learning curve for advanced surgical techniques, and why the Dutch are just so good at surgical clinical trials.

She goes through the very basics of transplant surgery, from the immunosuppressive medications to the behind the scenes process of organ donation. We hope this helps as you rev up your ABSITE studying!
