Three surgeons in Detroit rotated between working on a patient’s brain while watching a computer screen. They typed answers to tweeted questions which were sent in by medical students.
In another town, joint surgery was performed on a patient while a live-tweet session was in progress.
Overall, there have been a number of surgeries performed in the USA using Twitter in the background.
It’s becoming a useful educational aid in the medical field.
They’re now tweeting live operations.
It’s the latest surgical sensation.
They’ll cut through a bone,
While using the phone,
You can see it while you’re on vacation.

Thank God for that.
Well, at least they’re not letting the med students perform the operations. Or, are they? Hmmm.
They are still bound by the HIPPA law…….no worries..
You know-that makes me a little nervous. 🙂
