For Educators

Surgical Suite: Total Knee Replacement

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. School 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 6 interactive 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. COSI can connect schools through IP (H.323) videoconferencing or on COSI’s Ustream channel.

"View Only" videoconferencing sites will still see and hear the videoconference, but not ask questions.
