We adhere that surgery is a learned discipline with high standard of knowledge and performance where responsibility for serving others above self-interest and reward is our prime directive. We characterize our work by commitment to excellence and practice with unwavering personal integrity and compassion. We consider our position more than a job- it is an honor and privilege.
What the Surgeon Ought to be:
The conditions necessary for the Surgeon are four: First, they should be learned; Second, they should be expert; Third, they should be ingenious; and Fourth, they should be able to adapt themselves.
It is required for the First that the Surgeon should know not only the principles of surgery, but also those of medicine in theory and practice; for the Second, that they should have seen others operate; for the Third, that they should be ingenious, of good judgment and memory to recognize conditions; and for the Fourth, that they be adaptable and able to accommodate themself to circumstances. Let the Surgeon be bold in all sure things, and fearful in dangerous things; let them avoid all faulty treatments and practices. They ought to be gracious to the sick, considerate to their associates, cautious in their prognostications. let them be modest, dignified, gentle, pitiful, and merciful; not covetous nor an extortionist of money; but rather let their reward be according to their work, to the means of the patient, to the quality of the issue, and to their own dignity".
