New Red Hills Surgical Center Offers Training to Medical Students
Red Hills Surgical Center in Tallahassee, Fla., has constructed an observation center that lets medical students watch surgery through special cameras and audio equipment, according to a Tallahassee Democrat report.
The facility, a $10 million expenditure sponsored in part by Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, was certified in April 2011. The center showcased its technology recently when representatives from Tallahassee's various medical fields watched as a team of surgeons, led by Peter Loeb, MD, operated on a cadaver knee. The procedure was shown on HD screens in the observation room.
Dr. Loeb said the new technology is a step away from the old method of cramming students into corners or standing an atrium away from the procedure.
