Medical Photography

Caution, certified biological photographer on board

Surgical PhotographyOur photographers are trained in the surgical suite protocol for photographing high resolution, intra-operative images needed for teaching and documentation. We generally can respond to calls on a STAT basis and be in the OR within 10-15 minutes of a request. Surgeons anticipating the need for surgical photography can call our operations desk at 626-7343 to request a photographer. When possible, prearrange the scheduling of a photographer to document a surgery to avoid conflicts.

We are also ready to photograph patients in the clinics or, if they’re ambulatory, in our studio. We also have the ability to do “total body” photography for dermatological mole mapping.
