A Edheads, middle schoolers and high schoolers may perform virtual surgeries for knee and hip replacement. Edheads is kind enough to offer the virtual surgery in cartoonish-graphics (see photo above) so that anyone can view the operations, but there is a separate link in each section to view real surgery photos.
Edheads offers the following interactive learning experiences (the following descriptions are taken from their site):
- Virtual Knee Surgery (this is the one I mentioned above): Take on the role of the Surgeon throughout a total knee replacement surgery. Here is the Knee Replacement Teacher’s Guide.
- Virtual Hip Replacement: Take on the role of the Surgeon throughout a hip replacement surgery. Here is the Hip Replacement Teacher’s Guide.
2017 Update: I think the knee surgery may be down now – try this Trauma virtual surgery instead
