Crouse offers singleincision robotic surgery for gallbladder problems SYRACUSE — Crouse Hospital last month announced it can now provide single-site robotic surgery on patients needing gallbladder surgery. It’s a procedure that can leave the patient “with virtually no scarring and minimal pain,” the hospital said in a news release. Gallbladder surgery is now part of a robotic-surgery program that covers specialties, including urology, colorectal, gynecologic oncology, gynecology, and general-surgical JOURNAL STAFF procedures. Surgeons performed more than 600 robotic procedures at Crouse in 2012, making it “the largest robotics program in the area,” the hospital said. An estimated 10 to 15 percent of American adults have gallstone disease, the hospital said. Doctors diagnose about 1 million new cases annually, and surgeons perform about 800,000 operations to treat gallstones, mak-

ing gallstone disease the “most common” gastrointestinal disorder to require hospitalization, Crouse added. Surgery to treat this condition has become “significantly less invasive” over the past two decades. Previously, surgery to remove the gallbladder, a procedure called cholecystectomy, involved a large abdominal incision and several weeks’ recovery time. Nowadays, minimally invasive surgical techniques have made open gallbladder removal nearly obsolete, Dr. Kenneth Cooper, a general surgeon affiliated with Crouse Hospital and a partner in Central New York Surgical Physicians, P.C., said in the release. Cooper is the first surgeon in Syracuse to use the advanced da Vinci surgical system to perform gallbladder removal using the single-site technique, Crouse said. The procedure entails just one tiny incision rather than the four required previously. Crouse said it is the only hospital in Syracuse currently offering this procedure. “The minimally invasive approach, [called] laparoscopy, is the standard of care today,” said Cooper. Robotic technology supports the surgeon’s skill with three-dimensional (3D)

computer technology, enabling the surgeon to see vital-anatomical structures more clearly and perform surgical procedures more precisely, the hospital said. “The biggest benefit of the single-site approach is cosmetic,” Cooper said, since the procedure involved just one small incision in the belly button, leaving only a small, nearly invisible scar. “In most cases, this approach is preferred by younger patients who care about scarring, but it can be offered to almost everyone,” Cooper added.

Symptoms of gallbladder disease

The gallbladder is a small, hollow organ, shaped like a crook-necked squash, located below the liver. The organ stores bile until it’s needed to digest fat from food. If chemicals naturally

found in bile get out of balance, crystals form and can harden into gallstones which can block the flow of bile, causing pain, inflammation, or infection. Symptoms of gallbladder disease are often called an “attack” because the symptoms occur suddenly. Gallbladder attacks often follow a fatty meal and may occur at night. A typical attack can cause steady pain in the upper, right side of the abdomen, and pain in the back between the shoulder blades and under the right shoulder. These attacks may end when gallstones shift or move. However, if a blockage persists, the gallbladder could become infected and rupture.  Contact Reinhardt at ereinhardt@cnybj.com

OCC and CCC forge agreement on medical-records degree AUBURN — Cayuga Community College (CCC) and Onondaga Community College (OCC) recently announced an agreement that allows CCC students to earn an associate degree in health-information technology at OCC. The agreement is in response to higher workforce demand for health-information technicians specializing in medical records in the regions that the Auburn school serves. Under the agreement, CCC students can take their liberal-arts classes at the Auburn campus and complete their degree requirements at OCC both online through the State University of New York (SUNY) Learning Network (SLN) and through on-site clinical-lab instruction, the schools said in a joint news release. “Our ability to collaborate and share resources with peers is one of the great strengths of the SUNY system, and we’re pleased to work in partnership with Onondaga to provide an easy option for our students to complete a degree in this highdemand field,” Anne Herron, provost and VP for academic affairs at Cayuga Community College, said in the news release. Students enrolling at CCC for the fall 2013 semester can begin taking advantage of the new agreement, the schools said. 

St. Joseph’s to open new surgical suite SYRACUSE — After more than a year of construction, St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center is preparing to open its new 73,000-square-foot surgical suite, which is part of an ongoing expansion project at the Syracuse hospital. St. Joseph’s will hold an opening event on June 17 and will begin using the facility on July 8. The surgical-suite project cost totals $80 million, which is about two-thirds of the $123 million total cost of phase IIB of the St. Joseph’s expansion project, according to Marilyn Galimi, director of engineering journal staff and construction at St. Joseph’s. The cost includes the construction, medical and mechanical equipment, consulting fees, contractor per-

mits, and legal fees, Galimi says. The hospital completed the project’s first phase, including the parking garage, pedestrian bridge, and expanded lobby in 2008. It also finished phase IIA, including the emergency department, in 2012. The new surgical suite includes 15 operating rooms, two more than the current surgical suite. Each operating-room suite is about 50 percent larger to accommodate the current medical technology and larger surgical teams. The new operating rooms comprise about 500 square feet of space, and the new suites are about 700 square feet apiece, Galimi says. The surgical suite includes the PeriAnesthesia Care Unit (PACU), which is designed to enhance care for patients before and after surgery. St. Joseph’s has expanded the PACU from 16 to 25 patient beds, increasing its annual capacity from 10,500 to 14,000 patients. In addition, the new, co-located Central Sterile Unit is nearly four times larger than the previous 40-year-old unit. Its location adjacent to the surgical suite increases safety and efficiency while sustainable-instrument washers will save water and electricity, according to the hospital.

It’s a “major construction” within the hospital, says Galimi. It was more complicated than the construction involving the new emergency department (or Phase 2A) because it is “detached from the hospital,” she says. “So we really didn’t have to deal with patients and noise and staff being close to the construction site, [whereas] this one is right attached to the hospital and we’re continuously connecting to different existing systems like plumbing,” Galimi adds.

The construction work has continued around the ongoing work of the existing operating rooms. “So it takes a lot of communication and cooperation, not only with the construction team but with the hospital staff,” Galimi says. The current surgical setting has changed “dramatically” since 1992 when crews built the existing 15,000-square-foot operatingSee st. joseph’s, page 6

ST. JOSEPH’S: Hospital has 431 beds Continued from page 3

Certified Breast Imaging Center of

room suite and PACU, Jodi Donahue, director of surgical services at St. Joseph’s, said in a news release. “Constructed to accommodate the resource needs of the surgical procedures being performed at that time, the operating rooms were once considered spacious. However, these rooms simply can no longer meet the demands of today’s advancedsurgical technology and procedural complexities,” Donahue said. Galimi also referenced the early-1990s project creating the existing operating rooms. “So you start seeing aging space that may still be adequate but is not efficient enough for the new technologies that you’re getting,” Galimi says, noting the hospital’s use of the daVinci robot for surgeries. The project will use sustainable-design principles as the hospital seeks Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for the project. Working with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the plan includes solar panels, daylighting views, energy-conserving systems, a greenway park, site drainage, and underground water and storm-water infrastructure, all of which are intended to reduce the hospital’s energy costs. St. Joseph’s is using several means to finance the expansion project, which includes the recently completed emergencyservices building. The Onondaga Civic Development

Corporation has provided St. Joseph’s an inducement of $177 million for taxexempt bonding. The Onondaga County Legislature has authorized the corporation to assist nonprofit organizations that undertake economic-development projects. The remainder of the investment will come from hospital reserves and the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation’s Generations capital campaign. King + King Architects LLP of Syracuse designed the surgical suite. The Hayner Hoyt Corporation is serving as the construction manager on the project. Subcontractors include Burns Bros Contractors of Syracuse, which is handling the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning work as well as plumbing and mechanical work; Huen New York, Inc. of DeWitt, the local office of Broadview, Ill.–based Huen Electric, is handling the electrical work; Davis-Ulmer Sprinkler Co. of Clay is working on the sprinkler system; Edward Schalk & Son, Inc. of DeWitt is focused on the drywall work; and Raulli & Sons., Inc. of Syracuse is handling the structural steel work, according to Martin (Marty) Rainbow, project manager for Hayner Hoyt. St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center is a nonprofit, 431-bed hospital and health-care system providing services to patients in 16 counties in Central New York. The hospital generated $586 million in revenue in 2012 with net income of $9 million. St. Joseph’s employs more than 3,700 full-time workers.  Contact Reinhardt at ereinhardt@cnybj.com
