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. 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.
