Internationally recognized Anesthesiology faculty was recently featured in Le Monde, a prestigious French newspaper. The publication referenced by the newspaper was co-authored by Dr. Richard Prielipp, Dr. Julia Weinkauf, and Dr. Thomas Esser. Titled “Falls From the O.R. or Procedure Table”, the publication discussed a doctor’s responsibility to keeping their patients safe while under operation.
Going into operation can be nerve racking for some patients. However, one situation that is rarely thought of is falling off the operation table. This possibility is rarely discussed in medical publications as to not get this idea in many patient’s heads. Because of this, Le Monde applauded our faculty’s publication, stating that it’s about time someone finally talks about this. The honesty of the publication was greatly appreciated.
Congratulations to our faculty for this outstanding accomplishment. We are very proud of their extensive research being recognized by so many.
