Surgeons send 'tweets' from operating room

Surgeons send 'tweets' from operating room - CNN.com

This really isn't association related, but it IS medical and it IS Twitter and lots of folks are curious so ...

It's 7 a.m. at Henry Ford Hospital, and surgeons are preparing to remove a cancerous tumor from a man's kidney.

It's potentially a risky surgery, but everything's ready: The doctors and nurses are in the operating room, the surgical instruments are sterilized and ready to go, and the chief resident is furiously Twittering on his laptop.

The folks at @HenryFordNews say, "For those interested in our live surgery tweets, our next one is tentatively planned for March 6th."
