Join our surgical education fellow, Dr. Dan Scheese as he kicks off a brand new BTK series titled “Innovations in Surgery.” This series will take a deeper look into past, present, and future innovations that have, or will, revolutionize the field of surgery. In this inaugural episode, Dr. Scheese and Dr. Patrick Georgoff sit down with a leader in the surgical artificial intelligence field, Dr. Daniel Hashimoto. They cover what surgical artificial intelligence is, go over some common terminology used in AI, talk about current applications of AI in the OR, and finally discuss the future of AI in surgery.

Daniel Hashimoto is assistant professor of surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and director of the Penn Computer Assisted Surgery and Outcomes (PCASO) Laboratory. He received his MD and MS in translational research from the University of Pennsylvania and completed his general surgery training at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, where he was also associate director of research of the Surgical AI & Innovation Laboratory. He is vice-chair and co-founder of the Global Surgical AI Collaborative, a nonprofit that oversees and manages a global data-sharing and analytics platform for surgical data. His work focuses on the use of computer vision for the delivery of intraoperative decision support and assessment of surgical performance. He is editor of the textbook Artificial Intelligence in Surgery: Understanding the Role of AI in Surgical Practice, which provides a nontechnical foundation on key concepts in artificial intelligence as it applies to surgical care.

Gallbladders – bread and butter cases or underestimated challenges? Join Dr. Patrick Georgoff and Dr. Shanaz Hossain as they sit down with Dr. Eric Knauer to discuss difficult gallbladders. In this episode, we discuss the SAGES Safe Cholecystectomy program that were created in an effort to decrease the incidence of bile duct injuries. The six strategies outlined in the program include: 
1.    Use the Critical View of Safety (CVS) method of identification of the cystic duct and cystic artery during laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

2.    Understand the potential for aberrant anatomy in all cases.

3.    Make liberal use of cholangiography or other methods to image the biliary tree intraoperatively.

4.    Consider an Intra-operative Momentary Pause during laparoscopic cholecystectomy prior to clipping, cutting or transecting any ductal structures.

5.    Recognize when the dissection is approaching a zone of significant risk and halt the dissection before entering the zone. Finish the operation by a safe method other than cholecystectomy if conditions around the gallbladder are too dangerous.

a.    Subtotal Cholecystectomies – Learn more with this landmark paper: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jamcollsurg.2015.09.019

6.    Get help from another surgeon when the dissection or conditions are difficult.

Dr. Eric Knauer is an assistant professor surgery at Emory University. He has recently published regarding the management of laparoscopic common bile duct stones in General Surgery News and, more importantly, was awarded the junior residents’ teaching award.

Incredible, entertaining and empowering!
This is a must listen to show if you’re thinking about becoming a surgeon, going into medicine in some capacity or just want to learn more about what the world of surgery looks like – from actual surgeons! All of the hosts do an incredible job bringing on guests in the field who cover a wide variety of topics that apply across the entire medical landscape – all while keeping the focus of sugery as the backdrop. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

Amazing surgical resource
Annual ABSITE review is incredibly helpful, and such a nice break from staring at a computer screen! I listen on my way to/from work every day, making my commute a more efficient use of time. The topics outside of ABITE are also great tools for learning more about current issues in surgery as well as a career development and hot topics at annual meetings. This is an invaluable resource – I would highly recomment to every surgical resident, fellow, and faculty invested in surgical education!
