Managing Ovarian Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: You or someone you care about may have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. This video will help you understand how to manage it. The ovaries are two glands in a woman's pelvis. They produce eggs for reproduction and make hormones. Ovarian cancer is a disease in which cancer cells grow out of control in your ovaries. Treatment for ovarian cancer may remove or destroy the cancer. After treatment, it's very important to have a follow-up care plan. This includes going to all follow-up appointments. Your doctor will want to check to see if the cancer has returned and check for health problems resulting from treatment. You will likely need to see your doctor often after your treatment. Ask about what kind of schedule you can expect. If you are on any medications, continue to take them as prescribed by your doctor. Take note of any side effects and tell your doctor. If you had surgery on your ovaries or other treatments, follow any instructions you were given. You may also need to make some of the following healthy lifestyle changes. Don't smoke, and limit how much alcohol you drink. Both of these activities may increase your risk of cancer. Eat a healthy diet with more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. A healthy diet may reduce the risk of your cancer coming back. Become physically active. Daily exercise and activities can help you feel better. It is important to speak with your doctor before starting an exercise plan or making lifestyle changes. Keep in mind that some cancer treatments can make you feel very tired. Ask your doctor what you can do to help you feel less tired. Knowing you have cancer can be overwhelming. You may have worries about things like your condition and how it affects your family, treatments and hospital stays, medical bills, and your job. Fortunately, there are ways to cope with this.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the assistance you provided. It was a result of the excellent, timely work that we were able to conclude the case successfully.

I feel very confident that our paths will cross again."

"Medical illustrations are essential evidence in personal injury litigation and MLA is simply the best I've found at producing high-quality illustrations. Your illustrators are not only first-class artists, but creative and responsive. Your turn around time is as good as it gets. My clients have won over $60 million in jury verdicts and I can't recall a case which did not include one of your exhibits. On behalf of those clients, thanks and keep up the great work!"

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."
