Hospital Live-Tweets Brain Surgery

Houston neurosurgeon Dr. Dong Kim is live-tweeting brain surgery on Wednesday as part of a teaching experience. Starting at 8:30 a.m., Kim is removing a brain tumor from a 21-year-old patient, in the hope of eliminating seizures. A colleague of Kim’s will live-tweet from the operating room, a video camera will capture overview shots of the surgery, and a still photographer will be taking digital photos. All the material will be available on Twitter, YouTube, TwitPic, CoverItLive, and Pinterest.
