Surgical Suite: Total Knee Replacement is a powerful learning experience for students and adults that lets you ask questions and interact via videoconference with surgeons and medical personnel in a real hospital operating room.
Surgical Suite: Total Knee Replacement typically lasts up to 1.5 hours. This program is a live surgery, so starting time and duration time can vary depending on the patient needs. Teens, adults, and community groups are welcome. Individual tickets are available for non-school audiences and individuals to watch from COSI's Galaxy Theater.
Surgical Suite: Total Knee Replacement is a multi-point program that connects up to 5 or 6 schools at one time, including an audience at COSI for groups and individuals. Questions will be asked in a round robin, facilitated format for those in COSI's Galaxy Theater and interactive videoconferencing sites.
"View Only" videoconferencing sites will still see and hear the videoconference, but not ask questions.
Teachers will be sent a kit of materials prior to the program. In the kit, teachers will find materials to conduct both pre- and post-visit activities along with booklets for students to use during the program.
Kit includes build-a-knee, x-ray examination, suturing, knee measuring, and sterile field activities.
