Dear members of the Surgical Section of Serbian Medical Society, we are pleased to inform you that at the last meeting, the book “Surgical Section of Serbian Medical Society 1950-2019″ was promoted! Authors themselves are surgeons and active participants in the work of the Surgical Section of the Serbian Medical Society. So this work should be seen as part of the Surgical Section’s activities, this time through its most prominent members! It should be emphasized that this association is extremely important for Serbian medicine! It is special because of the fact that it brings together all Serbian surgeons under its own cap, for a continuous period of 70 years!

Book to detail, chronologically documents the work of the Surgical Section of SLD and the development of surgery in Serbia. The period covered goes back into the past, through the Middle Ages and the beginnings of medicine in Serbia, to the first written mention of pioneering surgical procedures in our country. Using encyclopedic manner authros are giving a brief overview of the development of medicine in the world and Serbia. Each pioneering surgical procedure within Serbian medicine is shown in detail. Written in an accessible style, the book provides an opportunity for a reader who is neither a surgeon nor a doctor to witness the development of surgery in Serbia! However, the surgeons themselves will benefit most from the book! The younger ones will see that nothing begins with their appearance on stage, and the older ones will not turn off the stage lights after them. Someone who has written this publication may wish to write a new issue in twenty years. In the meantime, it will be noted who and when was the first to perform a skull trepidation or a blood vessel suture, and who is now performing major surgery by the laparascopic method! Those who build a scientific career will be able to quote in their bibliography given presentations, citing a book! And finally, for those who wrote it, the feeling that they are part of the surgical saga will remain.
The book consists of five chapters: In the first chapter, the authors present to the reader the history of the development of medicine in Serbia, thus covering the period of 800 years! The rise of surgery itself into a special profession, depending on global events on the world history stage, is a logical follow-up to the second chapter. Focusing on the development of surgery in Serbia, the authors present a period limited to the beginning of the Great War in chapter three. Only the fourth. chapter explains the founding of the Surgical Section, to show its recent history. In its content, this may be a key chapter, it testifies to the great enthusiasm of the surgeon who has been transferred to numerous meetings, which testifies to the aspiration of surgery in Serbia! As the crown of chronology is the saga of presidents.
…It was necessary to write a book of this format, as a “frame” for activities within the Surgical Section of SLD, which marked the last seventy years of surgery in Serbia. Without this book, the memories associated with the Section would surely have faded, and with the departure of the older members it would have disappeared irrevocably. It can serve the surgeons who come as the basis for further chronology. The author, Academician Radoje Colovic, himself a former president of the Surgical Section, in cooperation with his younger colleagues, managed to bring the section closer to the reader, explain to the experienced surgeons its development, and the younger ones are interested and stated to maintain it!…Academician Zoran Krivokapić
… Designed as an expression of the desire for a closer connection of Serbian surgeons in organizing professional and other activities, the Surgical Section of the Serbian Medical Society inherits a decades-long tradition. Although formed much later than other sections of the SLD, it is not a native formation. Its existence has been based on the fruitful and rich activity of Serbian surgeons since the founding of the SLD in 1872 …… This monograph can be justifiably included as a valuable and indispensable contribution to the chronicle of Serbian surgery. With its extensive and rich content, it forms a solid basis for future deeper and more detailed research into the historical development of surgery in Serbia…Prof. Dragoslav Stevovic
The development of surgery in Serbia best reflects the work of the Surgical Section of the Serbian Medical Association. Although it was only founded in 1950 and before its existence, surgical topics dominated SLD meetings. Witnesses to this time are numerous reports from the meetings of the Serbian Medical Society since the founding of the association in 1872. The annual reports on surgical procedures at the General State Hospital are listed! Surgical works have been cited published in the Serbian Archives for the entirety of medicine and other journals of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In the same manner, up to the present day, experiences are presented, rare cases are presented and new methods of surgical treatment are propagated. Today, all meetings are accredited as part of Continuing Medical Education (KME), international symposia and intersectional meetings are organized. For a surgeon to renew his license, it is enough just to come to the Surgical Section meetings! There is no surgical association that does not rely on the Surgical Section in its work! The significance of the SLD Surgical Section is immeasurable for Serbian surgery and medicine in general!
