M. PATRICK LOWE, M.D.: Diljeet, we tuck the patients' arms during the case, so the patients' arms are not out at 90 degrees during the procedures. 00:38:40 DILJEET K. SINGH, M.D.: Yeah, you don't get to watch me, I'm watching you, but I'm showing them that whole tucked arm picture out here. So the other question people are asking, can they view this again. I think for a year, you know the answer to this Patrick. 00:38:50 M. PATRICK LOWE, M.D.: Yeah, this is going to be on OR-Live.com for approximately 12 months. 00:38:56 DILJEET K. SINGH, M.D.: Then, the other option if we don't actually get to all the rest and we won't get to, for example, the periaortic lymph nodes, is on YouTube. 00:39:03 M. PATRICK LOWE, M.D.: That's right. 00:39:05 DILJEET K. SINGH, M.D.: If you look under Dr. Lowe's name, it's M. Patrick Lowe, or if you look up periaortic lymph node dissection, you can get the videos of those procedures that are on different patients and might be interesting to people who are interested in those things. 00:39:22 TODD D. TILLMANNS, M.D.: There's another question on “How many of these hospitals in the United States do robotic surgery for endometrial cancer?” 00:39:30 DILJEET K. SINGH, M.D.: I'll be honest that I don't know the answer in terms of the United States. I know here in Illinois, I'm pretty sure we're the only group doing endometrial or cervical cancer cases robotically. But I don't know. Patrick, do you have any idea about in the United States? 00:39:47 M. PATRICK LOWE, M.D.: Most of the programs with robotic surgery, they're sort of spread out all over the United States, and what I'm referring to is what you call a dedicated program in robotic surgery for women's cancer. Some of those are -- we're all familiar with the minimally invasive program that they have at MD Anderson, as well as Memorial Sloan-Kettering, and then also there's very robust robotic surgery programs at the University of North Carolina that's directed by Dr. John Boggess, and then also in Scottsdale, Arizona that is directed by Dr. Javier Magrina and Dr. Boggess and Dr. Magrina were two of the leaders and pioneers in this area. I've learned a lot from those guys certainly, listening to them give presentations, and they really sort of paved the way for a lot of the robotic surgery. At least at the time of FDA approval, that was received in 2005. So when we go to meetings, we hear more and more and we see more and more presentations of programs that are dedicating a portion of their gynecologic oncology practice to minimally invasive surgery and it seems that -- let's go ahead and divide these uterine vessels. 00:41:11 DILJEET K. SINGH, M.D.: I'm going to interrupt you for a second, Patrick. 00:41:12 M. PATRICK LOWE, M.D.: It seems that… 00:41:15 DILJEET K. SINGH, M.D.: Patrick, can I interrupt you for a sec? 00:41:16
