It is always sad to report the death of members of the Travelling Surgical Society. However, it also affords an opportunity to reflect on the (often major) contribution that they have made to the art and science of surgery.

Some were mentors to current members. All were good friends and are sadly missed. You can download and read obituaries of members who have recently left us.
