Contemporary Surgery, along with help from Convera, has launched a new search engine at SURGERYFINDIT.COM. This new search engine tool provides targeted search results for surgeons.
Contemporary Surgery’s goal is to provide general surgeons with “a wealth of peer-reviewed, practical clinical data and practice information”. SURGERYFINDIT.COM attempts to deliver “editorially selected Web site searches” to their end users by editing out what they call “extraneous and unrelated sites”.
Searches initiated through SURGERYFINDIT.COM will direct searches on surgical resources such as associations, peer-reviewed journals, medical schools and major medical centers, and suppliers of surgical devices.
As a sample, I searched for “gall bladder” because I had hired a great general surgeon here in the Dallas area to take out my gall bladder when I needed it removed. Turns out that they have a lot of good information, as evidenced by a search. I could see SurgeryFindIt.com very useful for both people like me as well as general surgeons.
