Video games, virtual reality (VR) and…. scalpels?! We’re just as surprised as you are. Sicker Than Your Average Health Show (STYAHS) is joined by special guest Dr. Danny Goel, MD to talk about how VR is changing the way we train surgeons, and how it might be changing healthcare as a whole. Dr. Goel took a break from training the surgeons of tomorrow to teach us a few things, including why you might be reaching for a VR headset sooner than you think!
Join us as we dig into the health headlines you already know and tell you more about the ones you don’t.
