Journals - Live Neurosurgery
Liberty Science Center offers a wonderful program called Live From Surgery. Students can attend a session in-house at the Liberty Science Center, or view the surgery via videoconference. Students interact live, in real time, with the OR doctors, nurses, and technicians working in area hospitals during a surgery and students can gain knowledge of surgical procedures, anatomy, health issues, and careers in technology and health care.
Students at Passaic Valley HS watched live neurosurgery via videoocnference into the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, NJ. Dr. Richard Hodosh, M.D., F.A.C.S. of Overlook Medical Center in Summit, NJ performed an carotid endarterectomy* on a patient.

For more info on the operation performed, please see:  What is Carotid Endarterectomy?

"It was very interesting to watch this operation from beginning to end. The removal of plaque in the patient's neck artery was extraordinary to witness, and I learned about the importance of preventing strokes and aneurysms."  -Alex
