Difference between SVS OnDemand and the SVS Video Library
The Video Library offers SVS members exclusive access to a wide variety of “just-in-time” surgical technique videos presented at previous VAM. These videos are specifically the “How do I videos” and videos from the plenary session. In the future, SVS will provide instructions on how members can submit video content.
