One More Review

This review from The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist has some kind words for Dr. Camran Nezhat: "Camran Nezhat is referred to as the father of modern operative laparoscopy. He introduced the concept of videolaparoscopy (i.e. standing upright and working off a monitor) and in 1993 he predicted and claimed that large incisions and open surgery would become obsolete. "

Another Great Review of Nezhat's Operative Gynecologic Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy

This review was written by Dr. Gladys Tse from Washington University. She writes that she impressed the spectrum of disease states and surgeries that the book covers and the use of evidence-based medicine: "This is a comprehensive and useful book that will add depth to any academic center's library and serve its residents and staff well. The accuracy of its information is well documented in the relevancy of its references. The book does an excellent job of summarizing the available evidence-based studies, which I have not seen done in other books on laparoscopy/minimally invasive surgery."

Book Review of Our Text Book Nezhat's Operative Gynecologic Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy

This is an excellent review by Dr. Wright Bates from the University of Alabama of our text book Nezhat's Operative Gynecologic Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy published in 2008. The final paragraph of the review reads: "Simply put, 'this book is well done.' Everything from the binding and typesetting to the photographs and artwork is first rate. The combination of operative footage and detailed illustrations found throughout the book dramatically enhances one's understanding of the surgical anatomy as it relates to the procedure at hand. Each chapter is up to date and exhaustively referenced. This textbook will occupy space on my favorite shelf but it is unlikely to gather dust."

Look for the latest edition of the book, coming out later this year!

Useful information from Dr. +Chandhu Paka
GET YOUR PAP SMEAR

Women with cervical cancer diagnosed as a result of a pap smear test have a better prognosis than women whose cancer is detected on the basis of symptoms and who are overdue for screening or who have not been screened

Swedish researchers have shown that cervical screening not only reduces the risk for invasive cervical cancer, but that it is also associated with improved relative survival and cure rates.

We are excited about moving forward in developing new techniques for improved surgical training. Stay tuned for updates on our study comparing simulation training between laparoscopic simulation based on FLS guidelines versus Mimic's da Vinci Robot simulation .

Application of Robotic-Assisted Technology to Treatment of Endometriosis
We +Nezhat Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery recently published Surgical Therapies: Robotics and Endometriosis in Endometriosis: Science and Practice

Each step in the evolution of surgical techniques and technology has moved to the ultimate objective of ideal access, visualization and instrumentation. The advent of video-assisted endoscopy revolutionalized the concept of minimally invasive surgery, and the increasing application of advanced operative laparoscopy is a direct consequence of surgical ingenuity of early pioneers. Despite these well-established benefits, conversion from laparotomy to laparoscopy has been gradual. This hesitance is explained by the long learning curve, which stems from 2-dimensional imaging, counterintuitive movements and only four degrees of freedom. Thus, partly in response to these obstacles, robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery emerged to overcome the inherent complexity of traditional laparoscopy, while maintaining the benefits of minimally invasive surgery.

The robotic platform has enabled and enhanced surgeons ability to perform minimally invasive and transition from laparotomy to laparoscopy. Used appropriately, in trained hands, it may improves patient care. Areas of improvement presently being developed include systems with improved tactile feedback, multifunctioning instruments and robotic miniaturization. New instrumentation, such as robotically controlled stapling devices, will push the adoption even further. As with any new technology, time and experience will dictate how this platform will integrate into the surgical playing field.

Dr. Camran Nezhat has been chosen to receive the 2012 ACOG Mentor Award. Dr. Chandhana Paka (+Chandhu Paka ) submitted his name as an outstanding mentor who has made a difference and had a positive impact on her career. He will be honored during this year's clinical meeting in San Diego, CA, May 5-9, 2012.
