In case you have questions, ...

As a non-profit organization our goal is to develop digital educational material concerning specific advanced techniques in the field of Minimal Invasive Surgery and to make such material available for free to surgeons, residents and other interested parties worldwide in the form of teaching/App-modules.

We do acheive this with the help and advice of a number of world renowned experts, but we invite the users of our teaching modules to contact us and send us their additions, remarks and suggestions for new content and new modules.

If you have material that could be added to our modules you are invited to contact us at


What does the name iLappSurgery mean?

The iLappSurgery project was started to teach Laparoscopic Surgery in a modern way. It did not seem logic to write a textbook with the technical aspects of laparoscopic surgery without showing it on a screen. That’s why we collect the content and publish it in a teaching module and App so it can be watched on any mobile device. 

 How is the iLappSurgery Foundation financed? 

The iLappSurgery Foundation was established out of passion for surgery and therefore it seemed logic to set it up as a non-profit organization. 
Our world renowned experts are participating without receiving payment so all donations can be invested in the development of the teaching modules and their beautiful content

Actually anyone can support the Foundation. This means that we are supported by other Foundations, Medical companies, Educational grants and Private donations. You are invited to use the donation button to show your appreciation.

What are the donations of the iLappSurgery Foundation used for?

The donations are partly used for maintenance of the website and the teaching modules but most of the donations are invested in new content and the development of new chapters. We also aim to update the existing content on a regular base

What is the difference between iLappSurgery modules and some of the web based video libraries?

Our modules are adaptive so text and other content can be changed at any time. If there is a new aspect to a minimal invasive technique we can update the content of that chapter immediately. 
The quality of the videos is more important than just the amount of videos and also we try to offer them in a logic and understandable way.
By adding colorizing effects, illustrations and 3D-effects we feel that the educational value increases and that teaching is done in a more dynamic way. 

What’s the content of the App-modules?

Our goal is to discuss all aspects of a surgical procedure. This means that we not only record presentations of experts but also add crucial parts of their slides in the background. Also we add medical illustrations which are all produced exclusively for the iLappSurgery Foundation. Also colorized video parts and 3D animations are part of the modules.

How to access the modules? 

The content is accessible from any mobile device or a desktop/laptop computer as long as an internet connection or Wifi are available.

Because the modules are easily adaptable their content can be updated at any time.

How can users of the teaching modules be kept informed and contribute to the content? 

Users of our teaching modules are invited to send us their personal data so we can keep them informed. Such data, communication and training-procedures are all encrypted resulting in safe to use modules. Furthermore their suggestions and comments will be appreciated.

After finishing a teaching module further training will be necessary but the modules serve as a general overview of a technique and as a good preparation for practical sessions.
