Will your hospital or organization benefit financially by this procedure?

Dr. Marx:  I think they will only because they have less cost. It’s a shorter operation, less hospital time for a very good reason, and less complications. So, there is less redo. In the long run it saves a lot of their expenses.

What concerns do other doctors have as to why they are not using this procedure?

Dr. Marx: This is a relatively new technique that came from all of our research.  We have been developing books.  Because it is new, not everyone has been trained in this. So, we are training fellows and residents each year.
