Event description

Description

Based on the Greek word theasthai meaning ‘behold’, operating theatres have traditionally been as much spaces for viewing by many observers as their non-medical counterparts. From public dissections in spaces designed by theatrical architects, to the flamboyance and spectacle of early surgery and our own modern obsession with operations on television; Professor Vishy Mahadevan explores the theatrical side of the operation.
