Happening right now (8:55am EST): Neurosurgery being tweeted live from hospital in Houston

Neurosurgeon Dr. Dong Kim of Houston’s Memorial Hermann Hospital is leading a procedure on a 21 year old female patient with the intent of educating patients on what happens during brain surgery.

“The main reason I wanted to do this was for the educational possibilities. I spend a lot of my time with patients on what to expect and what the steps are,” Kim said. “A lot of anxious patients want to know exactly what happens. With this they will be able to see what happens.”

Dr. Kim’s co-worker is live tweeting the surgery from a laptop in the operating room right now.  You can follow along @houstonhospital or by clicking here.
