SURGERY LIVE: Our Anatomy students traveled to Whitaker Center to observe a Cholecystectomy procedure (gallbladder removal).
Students got to observe a Cholecystectomy procedure (gallbladder removal). They got to see and hear the surgical teams in real time during the live procedure and were able to ask questions directly to the surgeons as they were operating. They demonstrated how they used the surgical instruments in the operation, and explained the factors that contributed to the conditions that caused the patient to need the operation.
As an added bonus there were STEAM exhibits set up and students got to spend some time on them as well.
