Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) is defined as a process whose objective is the selection of the best scientific arguments for the resolution of problems in the medical practice. Phylosophically, it is a new paradigm that has been extended to all the sanitary professions (Evidence Based Surgery, Evidence Based Dentistry, etc.), sustained by the technological advances. Although their advantages are evident, also there have been recognized limitations, specially concerning the surgical practice. At the present work the bases and the main advantages of the EBM are checked.

Keywords : Evidence Based Medicine; Evidence Based Surgery; Systematic reviews; Advantages.
