Description

Closed Monday & Tuesday. Dr. James Chang, an internationally renowned hand reconstruction surgeon at Stanford, has long been fascinated by Rodin’s sculptures of hands, many of which evince medical conditions such as Dupuytrens syndrome and Apert syndrome. Chang has incorporated these sculptures into his hand surgery educational program, using new technologies that scan the sculptures, create interior anatomy, and allow for virtual surgery to correct the condition. This groundbreaking, multi-disciplinary exhibition demonstrates these technologies and provides an exciting interactive experience for visitors. It also offers antecedent depictions of the hand from 16th- to 19th-century anatomical texts.
