The Vattikuti Foundation (VFN) is a fast growing group of hospitals and surgeons who share core principles and goals. Our network represents a collective body of knowledge and expertise that is second to none. Members of the VFN pioneer new procedures, techniques and findings. We share globally with other members through exclusive forums and with all colleagues worldwide through medical associations, journals, videos and conferences.
The Vattikuti Foundation helps form a link between our various network to share ideas. Our process lends itself to a combination of collective learning and mentoring, which is unique in medicine.
The VFN provides an opportunity for surgeons and medical students to communicate with experts in their field. Learning is reinforced through master classes.
The Foundation sponsors conferences and workshops, which serve as ideal platforms to demonstrate techniques live from across the globe using today's technology. Our network members have the unique advantage of searching Foundation archives for multimedia. Surgeons and institutions can use VFN guidelines and standards as tools to help them to make improvements in key performance areas..
