A Pantogen Surgical Script is a quick and easy operative surgical training tool.  It intent to provide virtually all the information required on how to perform a named operation.  This information could only otherwise be obtained by observing and performing the operation several times.  Each script contains the many small steps that a surgeon actually undertakes in performing the operation.  Each step is backed up by the appropriate anatomical and pathological information needed to complete it.  In addition, each script presents hints and advice for avoiding, preventing and solving technical problems that may be encountered. It is acknowledged that there are entirely acceptable alternatives to the procedures, equipment and materials suggested in each script.
