Robotic Gastric Sleeve - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
If you suffer from severe obesity and have been unable to lose weight, your doctor may recommend robotic bariatric surgery. Your digestive system or gastrointestinal tract includes your mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. Your pancreas, liver, and gallbladder squirt digestive juices into your small intestine to help you break down the food you eat. Your doctor may recommend bariatric surgery if you are unable to lose weight and keep it off through diet and exercise alone, have a body mass index or BMI above 40, have a BMI above 35 and you have a life threatening condition such as heart disease or diabetes, or weigh more than 100 pounds over your ideal body weight or IBW. Bariatric surgery helps you lose weight by decreasing the size of your stomach so that it holds less food and makes you feel full more quickly. Before your procedure, an intravenous line or IV will be started. You may be given antibiotics through the IV to decrease your chance of infection. You'll be given general anesthesia. A breathing tube will be inserted through your mouth and down your throat to help you breathe during the operation. Your surgeon will make a small incision near your belly button and insert a plastic tube called a port. Carbon dioxide gas will be pumped into your abdomen through this port. The gas will inflate your abdomen, giving your surgeon more room to see and move the surgical tools. After your abdomen is inflated, a high definition camera will be inserted into this port. Your surgeon will make additional port incisions for robotic instruments, as well as for instruments used by patient side assistance. An assistant will insert all of the robotic tools through these ports. Unlike standard laparoscopic instruments, these tools can rotate 360 degrees and have more flexibility than the human wrist. Seated at a special console, your surgeon will operate the robotic arms and the camera with joystick-like controls and foot pedals. A computer will translate the exact movements of your surgeon's fingers into precise movements of the surgical tools. At the same time, a high definition vision system will provide a magnified, three dimensional stereoscopic view of the surgical area. One common robotic bariatric surgical procedure is a gastric sleeve procedure. In this procedure, most of your stomach will be removed, leaving a smaller sleeve-like tube about the size of a banana. To create the gastric sleeve, your surgeon will cut and staple your stomach at the same time. The part of your stomach separated from the gastric sleeve will be removed through one of the incisions. The remaining gastric sleeve does not change where food enters and leaves your stomach. At the end of your procedure, the incisions will be closed with stitches, staples, surgical glue, or closure tape dressings. The incisions will be covered with sterile dressings. After your procedure, your breathing tube will be removed, and you will be taken to the recovery area for monitoring. You'll be given pain medication as needed. You may continue to receive antibiotics through your IV. Most patients are released from the hospital one to two days after the procedure.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."

"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
