Free movie tickets to watch a live operation

By

consult

Coming to a theatre near us: On 1 July, surgeons of Amsterdam’s Slotervaart hospital are going to perform a laparoscopic gastric bypass, a stomach operation that is done through small incisions, and project it live in the capital’s Pathé Tuschinski theatre. The operation is a big matinee from 8:30 to 11:30 and will be performed on someone who is obese and needs the operation to survive. According to the hospital, it is a ‘very difficult operation that is only performed by a few Dutch hospitals’.

The audience will be able to ask questions about the operation to a doctor in the room who will then ask the surgeons performing the surgery.

Tickets are free, scroll down here to Gastric Bypass to send an e-mail and score some tickets.
