TYLER, TX— On November 2, 2006 at 6 p.m. CST Trinity Mother Frances Health System's Center For Advanced Surgery And Technology (CASAT) will host a live Webcast of a minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery using the da Vinci® Surgical robot. The Webcast will feature CASAT co-medical director and cardiovascular surgeon William F. Turner, Jr., MD of Turner Cardiovsacular Associates, who has performed over 100 robot-assisted heart surgeries and 1,651 beating heart bypass operations.
The Webcast is broadcast free of charge around the world.
This is the same coronary artery bypass surgery that I underwent and also the same heart surgeon. It may be a bit traumatic for me to watch for that reason.
The live webcast begins at 6:00 p.m. Central Standard (USA) time. Here is the URL:
Very interesting, i may watch that. When i had cable tv, there was some station that had stuff like on and i watched one, i think it was the installation of a stint, but not sure. It was not as bad to watch as i thought it would be, though there was one part that made me look away.
They are probably using a robot so they can't sue him. That's my lame joke of the day.
I think they are now using robotics in the common eye surgeries now, like for cataracts and things.
