Immersive Video Experiences

STS 2021 will feature a new and exciting course series, Immersive Video Experiences, taking place on Friday, January 29, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ET.

The series includes 16 sessions—five offering an opportunity to get a 360° view of the operating room during a procedure performed by a surgical luminary. 11 “deep dives” will highlight various procedures using a combination of video segments and interactive group discussions. Purchasing access includes all 16 sessions. The Immersive Video Experiences is an optional add-on program and you can buy a ticket during registration.


In the OR with… 

Experience a procedure “wheels in” to “wheels out” as a world-class surgeon brings you into an operating room, talks you through his/her thought processes and operative techniques, and demonstrates the difference between good outcomes and masterful ones. Attendees will be able to see who’s in the room, how they are positioned, and what equipment they are using—all without traveling to another hospital. A moderator will discuss with the master surgeon critical aspects of the procedure, drive the 360° views, and engage the audience for interactive discussions throughout each session.
