In laparoscopic surgery, tubes arc inserted into the abdomen which allows the doctor to be able to see inside. In the past, doctors actually had to look through the tubes that are inserted into the body cavity. Now, a tiny video camera is inserted through one of the tubes. One member of the surgical team is the camera operator. That pcr n's sole responsibility is to keep the camera ai mcd at the place where the doctors are working. There arc two television screens connected to the camera, one on each side of the patient, so the two doctors who are performing the surgery can see what they are do- ing. The advantages oflaparoscopic surgery include a smaller incision, shorter time in the hospital, less pain after surgery and a faster re- da)s compared to three to four weeks using the open abdomen method. Not every patient is a candidate for laparoscopic surgery due to other health problems. Sometimes the abdomen must be opened after starting the laparoscopic proce- dure because the surgeon finds problems that must be addressed. Four members of Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital's sur- gical staff recently attended an extensive course of training to bc qualified to pcrlorm laparoscopic surgery. These surgeons are L. A. Almasc, M.D.. A. F. Gruspe, M.D.. Victor Villarrcal, M.D., and Frank Hartman, M.D. The anesthetists and operating room nursing staff have also bccn trained to assist with these proce- dures. The O.R. team has been assnstmg Joseph Snead, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon, with arthroscopic procedures per- formed on knees and also has as- sisted other surgeons with diag- nostic laparoscopies and laparoscopic tubals for several years. With the purchascofthis equip- ment, a well trained surgical staff, and surgeons, it is no longer nec- essary for local patients to go out of town for laparoseopic surgery. Services/T.
