Real Doctor reacts to DOCTOR STRANGE | Hospital Movie Scenes Review

  • Published on Jan 8, 2019
  • As a huge geek I thought it time I break down the medical scenes from the Marvel movie Doctor Strange from a real doctor's perspective! I'll explain how accurate it is, a bit more about what's happening on screen and share some of my experiences too!
    I try and bring something different to each video, so if you enjoyed this please check out my other reviews of Medical TV dramas; House MD, Scrubs, The Good Doctor, Grey’s Anatomy, The Resident and ER!
    Here is my latest review of the TV show House that you may enjoy:

    I have a question.
    Now after Dr. Strange leaves to become a wizard, and after his accident I would assume he is no longer employed or have a license to work at that hospital. So when the Ancient One is brought to the hospital, is it that simple for Dr. Strange to just walk in and prep for surgery?

  • Not Actually A Black Guy

    When you react to the scene starting at about 19:34 it's hard for me to not hope you'll also acknowledge and comment on the significance of him allowing the other surgeon to do the job instead of himself. Showing the overall progress of Dr. Strange through his arc as a hero and changed man. Going from totally selfish and narcissistic to selfless and humble. Willing to let go of his ego and let someone he sees as kind the inferior surgeon mentally perform because he physically cannot do it himself. Plus you can tell he just doesn't like that guy much generally. Lol. But I understand you're probably just wanting to remain objective and true to the main purpose of your videos.

    • Not Actually A Black Guy

      I guess it just leaves me asking myself "did the doctor man understand the emotional side this part as well?" Those things can be less apparent. And it would provide a kind of objective/subjective balance that could be cool to see you walk through.

  • Not Actually A Black Guy

    The patient with the electric implant struck by lightning is interesting to see a real doctor react to because a lot of people think that may be an Easter egg/reference for a new Marvel hero. I've heard it usually be explained as a possible reference to Captain Marvel I think.

    Would you actually need so much surgery and pins on your hands? That part always struck me as a little odd. There was some line from Strange about the way that they did it was more damaging than it should have been. But that could always be his arrogance.

    there was a guy in the states who got shot in the head and the bullet passed almost right through without causing damage but some pressure caused issued till it was removed. pretty uncommon id suspect but might be where they got the idea.

    • bmxriderforlife1234

      if im not mistaken its when the sac surrounding the heart gets punctured and fills with blood and causes pressure on the heart preventing it from beating.

    itd be cool to get your imput on surgeries done in history. theres an indian legend about a guy doing surgeries like 2000 years ago. as well as some actual crazy accounts of pretty complex surgeries done back in the day. pretty sure one of the medieval kings of europe had a pretty crazy one and lived.
    always found it kinda strange they managed to oull stuff like this off back in those days yet we are always told how bad medical technology and practices were in those days. like the aztecs fixing hematoma's with obsidian knives and cutting out bits of the skull.

    Since you're a big Marvel fan, can you examine the Tony Stark injury from the first Iron Man movie? I don't know if you're a surgeon or any background of being an engineer but I'd love to know how realistic the injury is and the technique to fix the injury is, especially since it was in the middle of the Afghan desert in 2008 of all times. Just has my curiosity hightened to get your take on what happened vs what should've happened.

    Nice to see that little nod to previous Marvel movies in Dr. Strange. The Air Force captain with a mid-thoracic burst fracture (or whatever that was) was probably a reference to the failed Hammer Industries armoured suit that was trying to emulate Tony Stark's Iron Man suit hahaha

    If you like cells at work and surgery shows you should try doing a review of black jack (anime) it is based on a 1973 manga by osamu tazuka (creator of astro boy) the godfather of anime. It follows a underground surgeon who is very talented and perform operations for the poor who cant afford it (something like a medical robin hood).

    This was fantastic! I love this movie, but cringe through the medical scenes. It drives me crazy the basic stuff that they do wrong. As you said, some of it is forgivable being a superhero movie and all, but scrubbing in? Come on! And if my brain is exposed on the operating table, my medical team had better be wearing masks in theatre! Thank you for this great little expose and educational lesson. This doctor is glad its not just me noticing this stuff. I expect more accuracy in the real life part of million dollar movies, even if/until magic, aliens, or supers come along. Then they can do whatever they want. (my late husband felt the same way about computer stuff in "real life scenes" in movies.) And I totally play music in surgery. :}
