Use of incisive instruments on a person to investigate or treat a medical condition
Kurt Azarbarzin grew up valuing discipline, hard work and a can-do attitude, and he credits much of his success to continuing to work and live by those principles. Having moved to the United States from Tehran, Iran in late 1970's as a senior in High School, Kurt was fortunate to live with an American family who knew his own family well. He enjoyed math and science, so he studied manufacturing engineering in college and had his first exposure to the medical device industry from a professor who was then consulting at U.S. Surgical. This professor helped Kurt obtain a part-time job there, and although he was not initially interested in medtech, Kurt quickly became fascinated with surgery as he worked with surgeons in the OR. He learned that if he truly aimed to help the surgeons achieve better outcomes, and not just pitch them products, then a mutually beneficial partnership could develop. After 21 years at U.S. Surgical, the company was acquired by Tyco, and Kurt decided to continue his passion for innovation by first becoming a consultant and then an entrepreneur. In this interview with host Geoff Pardo, Kurt shares how his family values and early learnings at U.S. Surgical helped shape his success as a founder and leader, including starting and exiting SurgiQuest, leading Verb Surgical, and now overseeing ColubrisMX Robotics. Tune in to hear these stories and insights, plus the three most pressing questions you need to be able to answer if you're considering surgical robotics.BIOKurt Azarbarzin is a 39-year medtech industry veteran, having led the development of over 90 new products representing over $910 million of annual sales at companies including U.S. Surgical, Tyco Healthcare (now Medtronic), Spine Wave, Respimetrix, SurgiQuest, Verb Surgical, and J&J. He has experience in surgical, robotic, cardiovascular, interventional, orthopedic and urological markets. Kurt founded SurgiQuest in 2005 and sold it to Conmed, and the company's lead technology AirSeal became the standard of care for advanced Lap and Robotic Surgery. He then became CEO of Verb Surgical, a Joint Venture between Google and J&J consisting of over 550 employees, that was acquired by J&J in January 2020. After that, Kurt became and is currently the CEO of ColubrisMX Robotics, which is developing the first endoluminal robotic platform in the world, thus truly enabling scarless surgery through existing lumens. Kurt currently lives in Greenwich, CT and is a funding member of the MIS Revolution.

Liberal Senator Andrew Bragg says the Senate inquiry into the ABC's complaints handling process will be "stronger and better" than the ABC-initiated independent review.
Joey is one of only 800-1000 humans to suffer the rare genetic disorder FOPs Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva is a severe, disabling disorder with no current cure or treatment. It is the only known medical condition where one organ system changes into another A gene mutation affects the body's repair mechanism, causing fibrous tissue including muscle, tendons, and ligaments to become ossified, either spontaneously or when damaged as the result of trauma. Minor injuries can cause joints to become permanently fused as new bone forms, replacing the damaged muscle tissue. This new bone formation eventually forms a secondary skeleton and progressively restricts the patient's ability to move. Surgical removal of the extra bone growth has been shown to cause the body to "repair" the affected area with additional bone. The condition ultimately leaves the patient immobilized as new bone replaces musculature and fuses with the existing skeleton. During flare-ups, some patients have attempted to position their bodies in a way they would prefer to remain in permanently in order to improve their quality of life. Joey now in his 20's, completely lost the movement in his arms as they fused into place at 8 years old . If you place your left hand on your right shoulder and hug your left ribs with your right hand you can imagine for a moment what it might be like going about daily life permanently in this position… not to mention heavily fused hips, legs and the inability to swallow. For someone facing such an incredibly debilitating condition Joey sure is making the most of what he's got control over… he even managed to point out a few perks along the way.

What has four wheels, no brakes, and saves lives? That's right, surgical case carts! These stainless steel superheroes are the unsung workhorses of the Sterile Processing department, and even though they only hold supplies for a short amount of time, they are a critical aspect of high functioning sterile storage workflows. On this episode 7 of Season 14 "Sterile Storage Wars," we speak with William (Bill) Filipponi, Director Sterile Processing at North Kansas City Hospital and member of the Beyond Clean Advisory Group (BCAG) about the unique way surgical case carts move sterile goods from our departments -- to the patient -- and back again. Case cart programs impact everything from on-time case starts to turnovers, and point-of-use compliance to off-site transportation. Tune in for this insider's discussion on building a case cart workflow worth bragging about! This is a great episode to pull your materials management & OR teams in for a collaborative discussion around making the best out of these rolling storage superstars!

Join Drs. Ashlie Nadler, Jordan Nantais and Graham Skelhorne-Gross as they tackle Cancer Emergencies. Case 1 - Learning Points: These are complex patients and multidisciplinary care should be provided with input from oncology. A step-up approach should be used, starting with medical management prior to considering surgery in appropriate patients. Highly selected patients may benefit from surgery, namely those with a high performance status, a prognosis of months if the bowel obstruction was resolved, minimal carcinomatosis, and a single transition point. Diversion, bypass, or resection are all options, but a patient's capacity to heal related to recent systemic therapy needs to be taken into account. Consent for surgery should focus on goals of care, quality of life, and achievable outcomes, and highlight the inherent risk in patients with advanced disease and a limited lifespan. Case 2 - Learning Points: Colorectal malignancy is an exceedingly common cause of general surgical emergency and requires a thoughtful, systematic approach The role of stenting as a bridge to surgery in obstructing distal colon malignancy is somewhat controversial but can help to avoid permanent stomas; however there is some potential risk of perforation and possibly disease recurrence Treatment decisions should take place in the context of an informed discussion with the patient and consideration of both quantity and quality of life whenever possible Consistent involvement of a multidisciplinary team, including radiology, enterostomal therapy, and surgical oncology can be extremely useful in guiding complex decisions References: Shariff F, Bogach J, Guidolin K, Nadler A.

There are over 300,000 cases of surgical site infections in the U.S., which antibacterial sutures can help prevent. But they're not widely used –– although they should be, according to Dr. Antonia Chen, a hip & knee arthroplasty surgeon and director of research at Brigham & Women's Hospital. In this episode, Dr. Chen, also an associate professor at Harvard Medical School and a consultant for Ethicon US, LLC breaks down everything you need to know about surgical site infections, including the risks and costs, and how you can combat them with solutions like antibacterial sutures. Dr. Chen also discusses the Zero Starts With One movement to help reduce the number of surgical site infections in the country. This episode is sponsored by Ethicon.
Face masks have served as the pervasive and omnipresent symbol of the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether you're on a plane, on a coffee run, or at a school, it seems as if masks are a new part of our society at large. But what does the data actually say about mask efficacy? Can wearing a mask actually reduce transmission or infection from viruses? On this episode of The Model Health Show, we're diving back into the studies on mask effectiveness, including the safety of cloth masks, surgical masks, and N95 masks. We're taking a thorough assessment of the data, discussing various types of scientific studies, and cross-referencing the data. You're going to hear about new studies, studies that have proven the test of time, as well as studies that are commonly cited. You're going to learn the truth about mask efficacy, including different types of masks in different settings. We're also discussing how human biases can cloud the truth, and how the debate around masks has prevented us from addressing other pressing issues. I hope this episode acts as a valuable resource for you to reference and share. In this episode you'll discover: Why cloth masks may result in an increased risk of infection. What percentage of healthcare workers experienced adverse effects from masking. How double masking can increase the risk of infection. Why cross-referencing data is important for eliminating biases. What studies showed regarding efficacy of surgical masks and N95 masks. The size of a virus. What you need to know about randomized control trials. The problem with many of the widely dispersed studies. What you should know about the Bangladesh study. Why surgical masks are the standard of practice in the medical industry. The difference in infection rates when surgeons wore masks. What studies showed about pregnant healthcare workers wearing N95 masks. How blocking our breathing pathways can spike anxiety and elevated stress hormones. The link between headache frequency and mask-wearing. Side effects that are noted from wearing masks. Why masks are masking the symptoms. The link between chronic illnesses and COVID-19 deaths.

We were lucky to have Dr. Neel Datta on the podcast this week! Dr. Datta is a colorectal surgeon in Calgary. He did a Masters of Health Economics at the London School of Economics, and has used that expertise to model some of the issues around surgical workforce planning in Canada. We really dug into some of the issues around unemployment and underemployment of surgeons in Canada, and perhaps some solutions to that very real problem. Links: 1.

As more and more of the country is vaccinated, state and territory governments are starting to outline which restrictions we will lose when we reach very high levels of coverage. Over the weekend, Victoria revealed that when it reaches 90 per cent double dose in a month there will be no density caps, and masks will only be mandatory at certain high-risk settings. But how do we know when is the right time to lift restrictions and what can we learn from countries that have been this way before? Also on today's show: * Surgical masks give me "mascne" so I was going to invest in some 100 per cent silk reusable masks that are less likely to cause breakouts. They have a cotton interior but do you think they'd be effective enough against Delta? * When a zero-COVID state opens up with hopefully high vaccination rates, will it be more vulnerable because there is no natural immunity in the community from infections?

"Technology continues to evolve every day. In the near-term future, portable and easily deployable robots will allow surgeons all over the world to perform minimally invasive surgery in an increasing number of procedure types and become even more effective surgeons. To achieve our goal of having a future surgeon workforce that meets the demands of an aging population and delivers good patient outcomes, we need training and knowledge-sharing at scale. Surgical robotics is poised to be an important part of the solution." Barry Greene is a general and bariatric surgeon.

In this episode of Beyond Clean Articles On-The-Go, Hank Balch talks about the lessons we can be learn from the mistakes we make, instead of trying to hide them from each other. -- "We keep our error data to ourselves. We track different metrics, we use different targets, and for the love of all that is professional -- we keep the quality challenges in-house. What this means is that we have those damned silo walls so freaking high around our departments that only someone with a lot of nerve and a grappling hook could ever climb in and see what is actually going on in our facility. In the meantime, individual Sterile Processing departments across the country may be struggling with the exact same quality challenges (or completely different ones) and we would have no idea. There could be systemic "crashes" happening at 50 other facilities in the US due to insufficient inspection of aspirating needles, and our own department could be completely oblivious to it..." #sterileprocessing #wefightdirty #errors #database
