Virtual Job Shadow Program with Dr. Verma

Tuesday, October 26, 2021
8:00-9:00 AM
Off Campus Location
Elective surgeries are a cornerstone of our healthcare system that is focused on increasing a patient’s well-being and quality of life. At a time when elective surgeries have been impacted significantly by the pandemic with longer waiting periods, reschedules, or even cancellations, the ability to schedule those potentially life-changing operations in advance has been compromised. Join us for a live look into an arthroscopic rotator cuff surgery as Dr. Nikhil Verma uses advanced surgical techniques to fix a tear in a rotator cuff.
