Take a Video Tour of a High-tech Operating Room

Watch a 3-minute video tour of the new high-tech operating rooms at the Mills-Peninsula Medical Center, led by a surgeon.

Many of us would consider ourselves lucky if we never saw the inside of an operating room, but modern ORs are fascinating. The folks at Mills-Peninsula Health Services made a video to let everyone see the new operating rooms in the hospital with a video tour led by a surgeon.

Before high-speed Internet in the OR, surgeons used to feel like they were “operating in a box,” says Andrea Metkus, M.D., Mills-Peninsula general surgeon and medical director at the Women’s Center in San Mateo.

“The new integrated operating room system allows us to access test results and lab X-rays on multiple high-definition monitors around the spacious OR,” she says. “We can talk to or even show images to a doctor in the next operating room or somewhere else in the world.”

Join Dr. Metkus for the short three-minute tour of a high-tech operating suite at the new Mills-Peninsula Medical Center in Burlingame. The video segment is one of a series of features aired on Healthpoint TV.
