LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - Kids got to play doctor and perform surgery on teddy bears at the 8th annual Teddy Bear Clinic Sunday at the Children's Museum of La Crosse.
Kids received a teddy bear and at different stations throughout the museum they took their bear to the doctor to get a check up, shots, x-rays and even surgery.
Staff from Gundersen Health System and UW-La Crosse students were there to help the assist the kid doctors in the process.
Jenny Noel, Child Life Specialist at Gundersen Health System, said "When you go to the doctor a lot of people are telling the kids what to do and this is a chance for the kids to be in charge, and figure out what their bear needs and how to help them through it."
Sunday's clinic was free, it was sponsored in part by Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
