An Interview with Noted Pancreas Surgeon Dr. Charles J. Yeo

Recently, InsideSurgery had a chance to speak with Dr. Charles J. Yeo about his career as a top Whipple and pancreas surgeon and his ongoing role as a surgical leader and educator. As the Samuel D.

Several pieces of advice….enjoy the challenges and experiences of internship; read and increase your knowledge base outside of that 80 hours; practice knot tying skills; practice suturing skills; practice laparoscopy skills and focus on level one evidence. You are a graduate of Princeton University and recommend that your interns read famed Princeton basketball coach Pete Carril’s book THE SMART TAKE FROM THE STRONG. Why do you think a book about basketball pertains to learning surgery? I think it’s important that surgical interns recognize that they are training for their career-long profession, which if they do it right, will be highly successful. Practice is important.

ConclusionHigh levels of lifestyle-related cancer-risk behaviors were found in most of the Hong Kong construction workers studied. The present study contributes to understanding how cancer-related lifestyle risk behaviors cluster among construction workers and relative impact factors of risk behaviors. It is essential to tailor health behavior interventions focused on multiple risk behaviors among different groups for further enlarging the effects on cancer prevention.

Definitive treatment with laparoscopic deroofing was planned, however intra-operatively this was abandoned due to complex anatomy and scared adherent tissue.

We report one case, in which the patient presented to the emergency department with lower urinary tract symptoms, fever and consumptive syndrome. Acute prostatitis was initially suspected, but subsequently prostate adenocarcinoma was diagnosed.This case enables us to consider the possibility of prostate adenocarcinoma as the diagnose in patients with fever of unknown origin, and the role of procalcitonin to rule out the presence of infection.

CooperbergAbstractBackgroundActive surveillance (AS)/watchful waiting (WW) strategy for localized prostate cancer (PCa) is increasingly and broadly endorsed as a preferred option for initial treatment of men with very low- and low-risk PCa, but outcomes can be difficult to analyze in traditional, population-based registries. The recently released Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Prostate with WW dataset provides an op...
