LIVE Surgery on Twitter

Dr. Jack Inge and the da Vinci robotic surgical system at Rex Hospital in RaleighOn Tuesday, November 8, Rex brought our online community into the operating room with our first ever LIVE surgery twittercast, commemorating our 2,000th surgery performed with the da Vinci© robotic surgery system.  You can relive the event here with the Twitter stream below.

Just as the da Vinci© has revolutionized minimally invasive surgery at Rex since its 2007 debut, our live tweet is pioneering a new interactive approach to surgery here in Raleigh, giving followers a unique look into the operating room in real time. 

Follow @RexHealthcare on Twitter and click on the hashtag #LiveRexSurgery in the stream below to relive the experience.

Followers were able to experience the surgery step-by-step as Dr. Jack Inge performed a hysterectomy in just over 30 minutes using the da Vinci© surgical tools. Dr. Inge was the first physician to perform a da Vinci© hysterectomy at Rex.

We look forward to bringing you more LIVE surgeries in the future @RexHealthcare on Twitter and using new and exciting online tools.  Stay tuned!
