What’s it like to perform arthroscopic surgery?
A group of Grade 9 Aboriginal students found out yesterday as part of an innovative medical internship program at the Pan Am Clinic.
Dressed in surgical masks, gowns and gloves, students from Children of the Earth, Sir Isaac Newton, Hugh John MacDonald and General Wolfe high schools took turns operating a machine that is used to simulate the surgical procedure used to repair the interior of joints like elbows and knees.
