SurgExperience: "Surgeries" in the blogosphere

in Social Media by

Perhaps the best thing that ever happened to surgery in the blogosphere, SurgExperience is cut throat “operation”. Imagine the razor sharp wits and stories of the surgeons, anesthesiologists and the whole surgical team, brought into life via the blogosphere and compiled into one for everyones’ reading feast. And you don’t need to scrub yourself nor don an OR suit. Just your wit dude, just your zanny wit…

A compilation of the best surgical (and anyone else proud enough to keep one) blogs in the net today, SurgExperience was originally conceived by Jeffrey Leow of Monash Medical Student Blog and is on its 14th edition now. This will be hosted on “Notes of an Anesthesiologist” come Feb 3. Previous compilations as well as the upcoming schedule can be seen here.

So maybe, there is “cutting and nailing and implants” in the blogs after all. Not the literal type, but just as visual, and glorious (or worse) moments in our surgical life! Read on their posts, the operating theater is as open as you can squeeze in!

(Note: The Orthopedic Logbook, together with other Bone heads in the blogosphere, has recently been added to the roll. Hope I can contribute soonest or host the SurgExperience!)
