This is the second episode that comes to us thanks to a white chocolate mocha. Earlier in the day of the discussion in this episode a patient of mine had woken up and decided to have a white chocolate mocha prior to coming to the hospital before his surgery. For those of you who have had surgery you know that there is a period of time when you can’t eat or drink prior to having anesthesia. Because of his small indulgence we had a delay of two hours and a gap in the day. In our last episode I discussed the robotic partial nephrectomy with our current robotic oncology fellow Dr. Christopher Atalla. In this episode I took the opportunity to recruit Dr. Attalla and one of my partners Dr. Peter Sershon for a discussion about the robotic repair of a Uretero-pelvic Junction Obstruction, which happened to be the problem that we were waiting to fix on the patient who was still digesting his mocha.
I want to apologize for the audio. We used the quietest conference room we could find but our recorder picked up a bit of background noise. And if you listen carefully you can hear Dr. Sershon enjoying his lunch of Minestrone soup.
