EMP Web Resourses:MedicinePlus: Videos of Surgical Procedures

This page provides links to prerecorded webcasts of surgical procedures. These are actual operations performed at medical centers in the United States since January 2004. The videos last an hour. Among the procedures included are: a Aortic Aneurysm Repair, a Carpal Tunnel Release, and a Partial Nephrectomy

Most of the videos, especially those dated after July 15, 2007, are in Flash format. You will need Flash to view the programs. You can download the flash players at

Some of the videos dated before July 15, 2007 are in RealPlayer; you will need the latest version of RealPlayer to view the programs. If you do not have Real Player, you will be prompted to obtain a free download of the software before you view the presentation. You can download the RealPlayer media player at

One of the great advantages of these videos is that transcripts are provided for most programs if you cannot understand what is being said.
