Homeopaths get on my nerves with the ol’ “Well, science doesn’t know everyting.” Well, science KNOWS it doesn’t know everything, otherwise it would’ve stopped. (…) But just ’cause science doesn’t know everything, doesn’t mean you can fill in the gaps with whatever fairytale most appeals to you.

I’ve been busy the last few weeks editing English voice overs for all my 90+ medical videos at www.oncolex.no. While the English version of the website will not be launched yet, I can give you an exclusive sneak preview of a video right here, right now. Check out this video of a preoperative stoma marking, and tell me what you think!

My father-in-law had a total hip replacement a few weeks ago. I’m glad he didn’t watch this video before his surgery. This is why I usually remove all OR sound from my videos and have my pictures show actual surgery and not just a big red blur with metal instruments in it…
This game, on the other hand, was very educating.

Combining photos, graphics and video he creates a deeper understanding of a procedure that may seem pretty straight forward. He even puts in a little “poetry” in the captions:
Surgery is like painting – I use fine gentle strokes
The video footage is recorded through an operation microscope, which must be done solely to get good pictures, as an operation like this would not normally include a microscope. The footage is a bit dark and I think a voice over could have added more to this than the music, but all in all I like this video a lot.

WIRED Science has put up an article with “10 Gory Surgical Triumphs on YouTube”. Although their approach is somewhat sensasionalist, the idea to collect surgical videos available on YouTube is good. It has actually inspired me to start a series of posts where I’ll pick a surgical video from YouTube every week and review it.
What better then, than to start with the videos WIRED picked? Are they good videos that communicate something of use, or are they just, as WIRED calls them, “gory”?
Here are my reviews of the first five videos. « Read the rest of this entry »
