Project Description

This series communicates a surgical narrative about radical nephrectomy via subcostal incision. The operation is staged in anatomical perspective to cater the reader’s level of knowledge. Didactic color and line work are used to differentiate anatomical detail. The challenge is observing continuous surgical procedure and condensing it into three key events such that the audience would understand the operation well enough to effectively assist in this procedure in the future.
