QUINCY, IL - 1/8/07 - Coping with video camera operators and directors is a skill infrequently taught in surgery training.

QUINCY, IL - 1/8/07 - Coping with video camera operators and directors is a skill infrequently taught in surgery training.

Dr. Joanne Klingele, DVM, recently got a chance to learn how to deal with such Hollywood types as she and her staff came under the spotlight for a training DVD. Cutting Edge Surgical Lasers, Fairport, NY, arranged for a film crew to visit operations at the Klingele Veterinary Clinic, Quincy, IL. There, they filmed Dr. Klingele, Dr. Sue Sculley, DVM, and Dr. Paul Sculley, DVM, performing about a dozen surgeries using a carbon dioxide surgical laser.

The company will distribute the footage in promotional and training DVDs for use by veterinarians across the country.

Among the procedures filmed were spaying and neutering, wart removal, declawing, anal gland removal, entropion repair of the eyes, repair of stenotic neares, repair of an elongated soft palate and removal of an epulis. Each surgery was filmed from beginning to end.

Klingele's clinic and the Klingele-Sculley facility in Hannibal, MO, are among approximately 20 percent of veterinary clinics and hospitals that offer laser surgery.

Both clinics have been using laser surgery for seven years and were the first in a 300-mile radius to use the technology. In the past year, Drs. Klingele and Sue Sculley have been working with Cutting Edge Surgical Lasers, traveling nationwide to train other veterinarians.
