A new reality in surgery 06/02/2022

A new reality in surgery

If Dr. Marc Katz has his way, augmented reality is the future of surgery. “Imagine all the things this technology will allow us to do,” Katz said. Take the heart apart, turn it upside down, you name it – it’s possible, he said. All without endangering the patient. Katz even thinks the technology could eventually lead to performing mock surgeries, which would allow the surgeon the luxury of experimentation.

“It’s important for patients to know that you can get skin cancer anywhere on your body, whether that area has been exposed to direct sunlight or not. We have had patients that were diagnosed with melanoma in their mouths or eyes. We’ve had skin cancer cases on the buttocks and the bottom of the foot. The most important thing someone can do is to monitor changes to their skin and seek medical attention if they are concerned.”

Public health “detectives” will track potential links between COVID-19 and poor pregnancy outcomes 05/24/2022

Public health “detectives” will track potential links between COVID-19 and poor pregnancy outcomes

Dr. Angela Malek and Dr. Kelly Hunt are epidemiologists – public health “detectives” who look for patterns in disease data and statistics to improve our understanding of threats to human health and how to mitigate them. A unique South Carolina resource of statewide medical claims data will aid them in their investigation into potential links between -19 and pregnancy.

“South Carolina is really unique in that it is able to interlink all of the hospital data on births and discharge diagnosis codes, all of the COVID diagnostic information and even Medicaid data,” said Hunt. “That made it feasible for us to actually look at the state level at what the impact of COVID was on pregnancy.”
