"I think right now, a lot of the focus is on perioperative management, as well as some of the technical considerations of the surgery itself," says Jay Simhan, MD, FACS.

Video Transcript:

But I think now, a lot of the strategy is on minimizing complications, trying to understand patient comfort during what could be an aggressive or tedious dissection so that they feel comfortable postoperatively, and optimizing perioperative outcomes. It's not just about how you do the operation, but it's also how you take care of the patient. I think right now, a lot of the focus is on perioperative management, as well as some of the technical considerations of the surgery itself.
