Live and On-Demand Medical Webcasts and Surgical Videos

OR-Live is a resource for live and on-demand medical webcasts. Upcoming today at 21:00 UTC, surgeons at St. Joseph's Hospital host a panel discussion on procedures for treating brain aneurysms, such as brain coiling and clipping. And if you just can't wait, there are plenty of other surgical videos on the web.

Endoscopic Sphincterotomy with Stone Extraction: I like the sound of that., Wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of it though...

Seriously, I can't get enough of those surgery shows on Discover etc. There used to be a very detailed one called 'The Operation' That did all sorts of cool (but apparently not as glamerous as current Plastic surgery shows) procedures.

Wow, these guys are really into prostates. TWO shows. One last November, and another coming up in August.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

Some of my best friends are into prostates.

If you know what I mean. And I think you do.

Great stuff, thanks! Just watched the aneurysm one - reminds me of this channel they have on tv in Seattle.

I came across this Korean site yesterday. It has a 'how to' video for its circumcision device (click on the 'now playing' film strip). I found it very difficult to watch without crossing my legs.
You may suffer vernereal disease and even bring women's ailment to your loving woman if you avoid circumcision operation.

GungHo, I completely forgot about "The Operation," though my jogged memory remembers calling it just "Operation."

Never missed an episode, though there was one episode with penis surgery that--as a man--was hard to watch. Of course, the breast reduction surgery one (HYOOOOOOGE tracts of land) was no problem.
