Hospital to Perform Live-Tweeted/Instagrammed Surgery

What does a human eardrum look like through the 1977 filter on Instagram? You may get a chance to find out tomorrow. Doctors at the Swedish Medical Center will perform a cochlear impant surgery. They'll keep you informed of their progress on Twitter and Instagram:

As the surgery is being performed, it will be narrated on Twitter and photos of the surgery will be updated on Instagram. Dr. Backous is the Medical Director of the Center for Hearing and Skull Base Surgery at Swedish.

This live-tweeted surgery is part of a broader campaign by the hospital to build more awareness of cochlear implant surgeries, which can significantly improve and restore hearing – even for people who were born deaf.
