Since 2009 we’ve been focused on gathering and editing the valuable teaching videos that are added daily to our digital library, making them ready for online sharing.
For many decades Dr. Gimbel has been known worldwide for teaching, always using video footage of actual surgeries he has performed. He pioneered the use of this teaching medium. He has received recognition, affirmation and many honors for the value that his innovative techniques and training videos continue to provide for ophthalmic surgeons worldwide. The videos share unique surgical experiences and teach new techniques that he has developed.
Currently, almost all of Dr. Gimbel’s surgeries are digitally video recorded and saved when they have a particular educational value. We are committed to making these surgery videos – and others archived in our library – available online, in order to enhance the surgical practices of surgeons worldwide. In a very fundamental way, this project fulfills the mandate of the Foundation – a mandate to share (at no cost to the end-user) the experience and research of Gimbel Eye Centre doctors. Sharing with others ensures that patient care around the world is enhanced.
We thank all of our “Caring Friends” for making it financially possible to enhance our teaching mission in this way.
