MANY CONGENITAL ANOMALIES IN BABIES AND CHILDREN ARE NOW TREATED WITH MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY, RESULTING IN LESS DISCOMFORT, QUICKER RECOVERY AND FEWER COMPLICATIONS
"When it comes to surgery and how kids' bodies heal, it's important to realize that children are not small adults, and they respond differently than do their larger counterparts," says Gregory Fontana, M.D., director of the multi-disciplinary pediatric surgical specialists program at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center. Advances in technology have made it possible for surgeons to perform many pediatric operations with minimally invasive techniques. Philip K. Frykman, M.D., Ph.D., has been named associate director of pediatric surgery at Cedars-Sinai, and specializes in minimally invasive treatment for many congenital anomalies in babies and children.

FLUORESCENCE DEVICE TO DIAGNOSE ATHEROSCLEROSIS AND TUMORS DESCRIBED AT OPTICS CONFERENCE
At a conference on optics and photonics, the director of the Biophotonics Research and Technology Development Laboratory of Cedars-Sinai's Department of Surgery described the development of an experimental fluorescence spectroscopy device that has been able to diagnose dangerous atherosclerotic plaques (vulnerable plaques) and aggressive brain tumors (gliomas).

BLADDER PACEMAKER TREATMENT RELIES ON ELECTRICAL PULSES TO REDUCE SYMPTOMS OF URGE INCONTINENCY
According to the American Urogynecologic Society, 13 million Americans experience incontinence and 11 million of them are women. When traditional treatments aren't effective, some patients with severe urge incontinence are experiencing good results with an implantable "bladder pacemaker" that generates electrical pulses to decrease the number of bladder contractions. This, in turn, reduces the symptoms of urgency and frequency associated with urge incontinence.
