Twittering During Sugery February 17, 2009

Apparently, some surgeons are now “twittering” from the operating room:

As Rogers worked away on his robotic machinery, the chief resident, Dr. Raj Laungani, Twittered: “Dr. Rogers is saying because the tumor is so large he may have to do a radical (total) nephrectomy.”

This is no joke, check out the full CNN story.

I’m not sure how I feel about this… Would you let your surgeon twitter during your surgery?
