Gentleness Of Surgeon Can Now Be Gauged Using New Device

A new device that can determine the gentleness of a surgeon while performing a operative procedure has been developed by an Indian American doctor and colleague//.

The invention of Dr Vijay Maker, a surgeon at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago, and Dr Joseph Talarico, a surgical resident at the same institute, is now set to enter its next stage of development. While the original idea is Maker's, Talarico designed the device.

The device, according to a report in the latest issue of the Indus Business Journal newspaper, teaches medical students gentleness in surgery by determining the amount of force applied on tissue.

The report quoted Maker as saying that the current prototype alerts the surgeon if his or her touch is gentle, not very gentle, or bad during surgery. Eventually, he wants to have the device on a scale of one to 10 or one to 15.

The device comprises a laptop screen and an electronic push device, like that of a doorbell.

‘Gentleness translates directly into healing of tissues,’ Maker told the newspaper.

Stating that gentleness in surgery had almost become a lost art, he said that astute medical students could now actually learn the art of gentleness.

A graduate of the Maulana Azad Medical College in New Delhi, Maker left for the US in 1967 to work as an intern at the Edgewater Hospital in Chicago.

Talerico said that he took inspiration from Thomas Alva Edison's 30,000 attempts to get the light bulb to work. He credited Maker for persistently supporting the team, which had three other members apart from Maker and Talarico, in finally getting the device to work.
