Welcome to Mackool Online

Not everyone can join me in the OR, but this website comes pretty close. The cases you will find here are unedited with the exception of camera view and any down time. Every step I perform in each case is included just as if you were watching through the observer scope.

We've organized our surgical videos into 4 case types: routine procedures, advanced or complicated surgical cases, a case highlighting a recently developed technique or technology, and occasionally a case by a guest surgeon.
