Kathryn Ko, M.D., MFA

Kathryn KoDr. Ko, a self taught Ambidexter, completed Neurosurgery training at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York City
and earned a MFA from the Academy of Art University with emphasis on medical painting and drawing. During residency she also launched her complementary career in art by using the pulsed ruby laser to create medical holograms of the human brain. Ko regards art as a necessary continuation of her surgical practice. The operating theater
is her studio; the treatment of the subject begins with the scalpel and ends with the brush. Dr. Ko is the originator of the monthly internet TV show “Art on Call ~ Medicine, work of Art” on the Healthcare Channel.
