I am a medical videographer. I film surgery. Ask me anything!
For the past 20 years I have criss-crossed the US and Canada to record hundreds of medical procedures. As someone who went to school for broadcast communications, it has been quite fascinating, and I'm always learning new things about medicine and the human body. Here's proof: http://i.imgur.com/vM4kkcq.jpg
Edit: Thanks to everyone who asked and participated. This has been more popular than I could have imagined. Keep the questions coming, as I look at Reddit daily. Cheers.
Edit 2: Most popular questions and brief answers - to save you the trouble of asking them again:
1 - Junior mints? Nope, but great reference.
2 - Vomit? Nope but always a possibility.
3 - Is it gross? Not to me, but maybe to you!
4 - Can you look at this growth on my back? What is it? Talk to a doctor!
5 - Anyone ever die on the table? Not in my experience.
6 - what does the body smell like when cut open? Daisies.
Aside from these, ask away. And check out some of the sidebar threads - people are great at tangential conversations.
This has been great fun.
