    Symptoms came on fast and furious. Robert Wiseman suddenly felt extreme pain coupled with blood in his urine, he thought it was a kidney stone, but it was much more serious. “I went to the emergency room and that’s how they found out. They gave me a CAT scan and realized it was a big tumor,” says Robert Wiseman. A really big tumor, his left kidney was twice the size of his right. To treat the cancer, it had to come out. Usually a big operation with a 12-inch incision, his doctor believed he could spare Wiseman the worst. “I told him ‘look I think I can take your tumor out laparoscopically’. Because usually bigger than 10-12 cm you can’t get them out. But it was in a location I was very comfortable since I’ve had a lot of experience doing these,” says Dr. Paul Bretton, urologist on Lee Memorial Health System’s medical staff. The surgery was a hand-assisted laparascopic kidney removal. It takes the best of two surgical techniques and brings them together in one operation. “Most surgeons are trained to do open operation where they use their hands, instruments and all these kind of things. We’ve evolved doing these things laparoscopically- so this is kind of a cross between the two of them and it improves the outcomes,” says Dr. Bretton. Traditional laparoscopy requires surgeons to insert slender tools into the body through a few small poke holes. Using this sleeve-like port doctors can now insert their hand without violating the airtight cavity needed to expand the abdomen. “You’re able to put your hand on the organ; you’re able to feel the blood supply to the kidney. It’s a lot safer for the patient and decreases the operative time,” says Dr. Bretton. The hands on approach also lead to faster healing times and less pain medication since this downsized operation is less traumatic to the body. “I was in the hospital, up the next day and everything is good,” says Wiseman. Only two weeks post-op Wiseman was back at work with little to show for his hardship. “One incision that's going 5 or 6 inches across here and two small incisions,” says Wiseman. The best news of all - he is cancer free. “We had checked if it had spread anywhere else and fortunately for him it was all contained to his kidney,” says Dr. Bretton.

          • Magnets Can Be a Dangerous Attraction

            Any parent will tell you, it’s impossible to guess why kids do what they do- and why so many are attracted to magnets. But ER doctors say it’s so. “We know that children - they’re exploring, especially when they’re younger. Kids are going to go around and put things in their mouths,” says Dr. Carmen Garcia, pediatric emergency medicine physician with Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. Over the last decade more and more U.S. children ended up in the emergency room after swallowing magnets. It can present a medical crisis, especially when they’re ingested as multiples. “If they go down into the bowel, those magnets can stick together trapping the bowel wall between them and they can cause some damage or perforation of the bowel,” says Dr. Garcia. It’s news to Nicole Nalley. This mother of five thought she’d seen it all. “Usually I’m up to date on all this but no I haven’t heard of the magnets,” says Nalley. It goes to show what you don't know can hurt you. The number of magnet incidents seen at hospitals jumped five-fold in eight years. Some were swallowed; others were put up the nose. The most common age was 5. The reason for the increase - it may just be there are more magnets around us. Mom Nalley scoured her brain. “None that I can think of, other then maybe some refrigerator magnets like the ABC’s and the numbers. I just threw them away because they ended up more on the floor then on the fridge,” says Nalley. Culprits include desk-toys like buckeyballs; they’re round and easy to swallow. “Magnets particularly have become very popular as well and they’re everywhere. So certainly you need to make sure you child proof your house and think of things you don’t routinely think,” says Dr. Garcia. Swallowing a magnet merits immediate medical attention. You shouldn’t stick it out, and assume it will pass normally.

            • Convenient Care Clinics Add Just the Right Dose

              Somewhere between a visit to the doctor’s office or the emergency room sits the convenient care, or walk-in clinic. Now more than ever these settings are providing the right dose of medicine for patients. “We get our winter people a lot down here, they don’t have local physicians, they’re only here three months. So we see a lot of that. A lot of the primary care docs here are so busy right now that they don’t have time to see a patient and so they’ll send them here,” says Dr. Karen Calkins, emergency medicine physician with Lee Memorial Health System. Lee Memorial Health System recently opened its third location across from HealthPark Medical Center to keep up with demand for services and keep people from making unnecessary trips to the ER. “Sometimes it’s hard for people to realize which place to go to but certainly if they came here and needed to go to the ER we’re close by. And for the patients it’s certainly less expensive,” says Dr. Calkins. Convenient Care takes office visits a step further, helping patients who need it. Whether it’s an x-ray or stitches, they’re here to help. “One of the great things about this new office - we do have procedure rooms. These are where those injuries we were talking about - people who fell, the little kid who falls and cracks their chin and needs stitches - we can do all of these things here,” says Brittany Garrett, RN. The clinic also has its own radiology department. “For those bumps, bruises; our doctors can taken look at those make sure nothing is broken. If things are broken we do have the capabilities here of putting on what’s called hard splint which same thing they would do at the ER,” says Garrett. No substitute for having an established family doctor, Convenient Care clinics help people through acute illness or injury. “Our ultimate goal is to try and get people in and out as quickly as possible,” says Dr. Calkins. A growing trend is providing solutions for the unexpected.
