Minimally Invasive Surgery - What's Ahead? - The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (5 of 5)

Author: The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

It's a very challenging proposition to educate young surgeons, teach young surgeons to do these minimally invasive procedures. we're fortunate to be able to attract a world talent pool of trainees. chop now has a real unique combination of expertise when it comes to disease and expertise when it comes to technique that allows us to take care of common diseases and rare diseases using really innovative methods. in my experience, many of the new ideas and innovations come from determined, smart folks who come from around the world to train here. once they've become experts in minimally invasive technology, well it's very easy to marry that knowledge of these rare diseases to these new techniques and not just anyone can do that.

It takes practice, and it takes familiarity with not what goes right, but what can go wrong. i actually had the same surgery as alexa 30 years ago. It was nothing compared to what it is now. My incisions are there to stay, and they're very big. Alexa and ulysses' incisions you'll barely see when they grow up. But the biggest one, they'll never have. minimally invasive approaches are going to play a bigger and bigger role in things that we do every day. we do most procedures now, at least some proportion of them, by minimally invasive technique.

But what's, i think, going to happen in the future with minimally invasive surgery is we'll learn to do it better. it's appropriate that these more advanced methods for minimally invasive surgery are being done here. chop is one such place to serve as the platform for future innovation and creative developments to enhance the care of children using minimally invasive techniques.

With persistence and imagination, we can accomplish virtually anything.
