Convincingly recreating medical conditions and procedures for TV goes beyond mere gore. For prosthetic artists, it requires extensive research and an attention to scientific detail to craft the realism of the effect … no matter how outlandish the scenario may be. We visited Vincent Van Dyke Effects in Burbank, California, to find out how the team creates medical effects for autopsies, open-heart surgeries, and more. An eight-time-Emmy-nominated makeup and prosthetics designer, Vincent Van Dyke has worked on medical shows like "Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice," "Pure Genius," "The Resident," "Code Black," and "Nip/Tuck," along with first-responder dramas like "9-1-1" and "Station 19." The Orange County Sheriff-Coroner's Department has hired Vincent to make fake autopsy bodies and dummies as training aids — his medical effects are that lifelike.
