Recent work from UVM’s College of Medicine

Every couple of weeks I’m asked to photograph a surgery case. In this particular instance, the Department of Surgery needed images of two neurosurgeons to accompany a story in an internal publication. This particular operation focused on the upper spine of a female patient. Most of the sequence here shows the surgeons locating the area they want to focus on using digital x-rays.  Due to the x-rays, the OR staff and doctors were wearing a set of lead aprons and skirts, each weighing upwards of 25 pounds.
