Pulse of Surgery

Pulse of Surgery

Get an insider’s view of the O.R. by viewing a real-time heart surgery streamed to Kentucky Science Center from Jewish Hospital, a part of KentuckyOne Health. Pulse of Surgery is a one-of-a-kind experience that gives participants an up-close and personal view of the scope of careers in medicine, healthy living, and human anatomy.

Note: Pulse of Surgery is a live, real-time surgery. There are occasions when a live surgery is unable to be scheduled for broadcast dates. In that unusual event, Kentucky Science Center will facilitate another Pulse of Surgery-related program.
