Virtual Surgery Center is a big hit

The new Debakey Virtual Surgery Center located within the My BodyWorks health gallery is a big hit! The center includes the opportunity to conduct your own virtual surgery - you choose open heart surgery or knee surgery. You get to use the scalpel to cut open the skin, the saw to cut bone and the retractor to access the heart. The patients vital signs are displayed on the screen as you attempt to complete the surgery successfully and keep your patient alive and healthy. The surgery center also includes many other opportunities - seal blook vessels with laser beam accuracy, challenge your hand-eye coordination with exhibits that mimic endoscopic surgery techniques and learn about careers in health care.
