Robotic Hysterectomy - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: If you are a female and have certain problems with your reproductive organs, your doctor may recommend a robotic hysterectomy to remove your uterus. Your reproductive organs include your vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. You may need a robotic hysterectomy if you have one of the following diseases or conditions. Heavy or constant uterine bleeding, anemia and pelvic pain, cancer in your uterus, cervix, or ovaries, non-cancerous fibroid tumors in your uterus, or slipping and sagging of your uterus into your vagina due to weak or injured pelvic muscles and uterine ligaments. 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 instruments used by patient side assistants. 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. Depending on your condition you may have a partial hysterectomy, in which your surgeon will remove your uterus but leave your cervix, fallopian tubes, and ovaries in place. If you have a total hysterectomy, your surgeon will remove your cervix along with your uterus. If you have a radical hysterectomy, your surgeon may also remove your fallopian tubes, ovaries, the upper part of your vagina, as well as nearby tissues such as your pelvic lymph nodes. At the end of your procedure the tiny incisions will be closed with stitches, staples, surgical glue, or closure tape dressings. After your procedure your breathing tube will be removed and you will be taken to the recovery area for monitoring. You will be given pain medication as needed. You may continue to receive antibiotics through your IV. You may be released from the hospital the same day or within one day after the procedure.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."
