"LSSU has a great reputation for placing students in graduate and professional schools. Many of my classmates from LSSU are now pursuing graduate and professional studies at some of the finest universities in Canada and the United States."

"The student-faculty interaction and the ability to conduct research at the undergraduate level really helped me to achieve success in a competitive graduate program. My professors at LSSU were always interested in helping us succeed."

Luke Fera of Sault Ste. Marie graduated from LSSU in 2006 with a degree in biology and is now working toward a master's degree in epidemiology at University of Western Ontario in London. He plans to continue his studies in the medical sciences.

Video Information
Title: OPERATION: ARTHROSCOPIC KNEE SURGERY
Movie ID: VT4184
Movie Number: 4184
Description: The knee is the largest joint in the body and is very susceptible to injury. The patient tore her anterior cruciate ligament, of ACL. Dr. Gary Poehling, of the Bowman Gray School of Medicine in NC, replaces the ligament with an Achilles tendon obtained from a cadaver. The operation is performed under arthroscopic visualization, with a tiny camera inserted into the knee so that its interior can be displayed on a video monitor. The operation invoives three incisions only a half-inch wide, which reduces both the risk of infection and the length of recovery time.
