Professor Stewart Walsh, Associate Professor of Surgery at the University of Limerick has been appointed editor of the International Journal of Surgery. Professor Walsh is a Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Mid-Western Hospitals Group, HSE.
As a general surgical journal, covering all specialties, the International Journal of Surgery is dedicated to publishing original research, review articles, and offering significant contributions to knowledge in clinical surgery, experimental surgery, surgical education and history.
Speaking about his appointment, Professor Walsh said; “Although only ten years old, the IJS has rapidly established itself as a journal which encourages cross-discipline interaction not only within surgery but also with related disciplines. The journal is fortunate to have the services of an eminent editorial board including internationally recognized experts such as Lord Robert Winston, Sir Magdi Yacoub and Lord Ara Darzi. I am delighted to have joined such a strong editorial team.”
