Portsmouth Herald Health News: Short cuts: Minimally invasive surgery has its critics, 9 May 2004 [cached]
"I didn't believe it either," said Dr. Roger Palutsis, an orthopedic surgeon at Carnation Clinic in Alliance, Ohio."I was the same way - the doubting Thomas.Even when people see it, they can't figure out how you get in what you need to get in through those small incisions."
But after sitting in on one minimally invasive hip replacement surgery, he was sold. (So much so that he's bought stock in the company that makes the surgical tools, Zimmer Inc.) The surgery was on a Wednesday, and the patient - a doctor - was back to work seeing patients the following Monday.
In the last 13 months, Palutsis has performed 35 minimally invasive hip replacements.
Three months ago, Palutsis replaced Siciliano's right hip.This time, no muscles were cut.He was walking the afternoon of the surgery.He was out of the hospital within 48 hours.
The reason for the difference, Palutsis said, is that no muscles are cut, as is the case with traditional hip replacements.
Still, the procedure is relatively new, just a little over two years old.Few surgeons are performing it, because of the level of difficulty.In traditional surgeries, surgeons have a direct view of the hip joint.In minimally invasive surgery, the only thing they see are X-ray images of the joint.
Palutsis compares it to flying a plane using only instrumentation without looking out the window.
That's one of the main concerns of critics.

Orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Roger S. Palutsis uses the HERMES voice activated computer to assist him during knee surgery at Alliance Community Hospital.
A little bit of history is being made at Alliance Community Hospital.For more than a year , surgeons at the hospital have been using a specialized computer called HERMES , which gives surgeons the ability to perform many operations using voice commands.It is the first Food and Drug Administration approved , voice activated system and is being used only at Alliance Community Hospital and a few other hospitals around the country.In Alliance , HERMES was first used by Dr. Roger S. Palutsis , an orthopaedic surgeon based at the Carnation Clinic on South Arch Street.We were chosen as a test site , Palutsis said , who came to the Alliance area nearly a decade ago from Chicago.Palutsis has been performing orthoscopic minimally invasive surgeries ( MIS ) on knees , hips , elbows and shoulders for over a decade , averaging 200 surgeries per year.During traditional MIS , Palutsis uses a tiny camera , or endoscope , that is inserted into a small incision in a patient's body.Images of the joint appear on a monitor and are used to guide the surgeon.Until HERMES , most MIS surgeries were conducted in a operating room full of nurses performing various tasks.Meanwhile , the surgeon controlled the endoscope and performed surgery using hand controls.HERMES eliminates the need for most operating room personnel by giving the surgeon control over most of his or her environment using only voice.The system frees nursing staff to work elsewhere.Through the surgical voice command I can control lighting , camera focus , control of the shaver , the taking of pictures and video images , said Palutsis , naming only a few of the features now under voice control.Palutsis sees the HERMES system as a way to not only increase the efficiency of the operating room , but as a way to avoid confusion and misunderstandings between surgeon and nurse.To use HERMES , Palutsis dons a headset and microphone.A portable voice card impression is created giving surgeons the ability to use HERMES in other hospitals.The system will only respond to my voice , Palutsis said.As in normal MIS , Palutsis views surgical procedures on a color video monitor next to the operating tablePalutsis said the HERMES system brings together equipment that normally would have to be operated by hand.With HERMES , I am total control of my surroundings , he said , It's efficient..Palutsis sees the HERMES system as a natural evolution of his specialty.He also believes there is a place for HERMES in other areas of medicine.Medicine has to continually challenge itself , he said.What I see happening is that HERMES is going to come down from orthopaedics and then to other specialists such as gynecologists , urologists and general surgeons , Palutsis said.Palutsis can see HERMES used in all areas of medicine within five to ten years.He gives the hospital high marks for bringing HERMES to the area.They have been very dedicated to maintaining the highest quality , and HERMES is an extension of that commitment , Palutsis said.
Palutsis graduated from Loyola University and Rush Medical College in Chicago.He completed his residency at Northwestern University's department of orthopaedic surgery and spent a year as a fellow at the Hughston Sports Medicine Program in Columbus , Ga. Palutsis teaches sports medicine at Mount Union College where he is also a team physician.In addition , he serves as team physician for several area high schools and was once a member of the medical team for the Chicago Bulls NBA Rookie Camp.
