    • V. I am a crucial member of the Gastroenterology Team in Hospital USM. Gastroenterology service is well established in HUSM for more than a decade and this unit has been recognised by the Ministry of Health as an accredited training centre for Gastroenterology and Endoscopy. Decision making on complex gastrointestinal problems that require both medical and surgical input are often made after mutual discussion with the team members. VI. Provide Support/Cover For Neurosurgical Services In Elective And Emergency Situations. This is the only Neurosurgical Unit in the East Coast of Peninsula Malaysia which handles a very heavy clinical load of neurotrauma. Neurosurgical Unit in the Dept of Surgery is the central component of the newly established Neuroscience Unit in the School of Medical Sciences, USM. Examples of Combined clinical cases : Anterior approaches to the cervical and thoracic spines in cases of thyroid cancers and tuberculosis and Laparoscopic approach to salvage VP shunt VII. Provide Support/Cover For Urological Services In Emergency Situations. VIII. Provide support for Otorhinolaryngology services in elective situations. This contribution essentially involves the performance of “Stomach pull up” procedures as a pedicle graft for reconstruction of gastrointestinal tract after a radical pharyngolaryngectomy. IX. Provide support for Gynaecology services in elective and emergency situations. This participation mainly congregates on the common interest of utilizing minimal access approach to manage abdominal diseases by way of laparoscopy – diagnostic and therapeutic X. Provide support for Orthopaedic and Plastic Surgery services (Tumour and Reconstructive Team) in elective situations. The Tumour and Reconstructive Team of HUSM is perhaps the only such team in the country performing major ablative surgery on the musculoskeletal system with plastic reconstruction to restore structures and functions. Examples of participations : combined approach in thoracic and abdominal wall surgery, pulmonary metastasectomy of soft tissue secondaries following Limb-salvage surgery XI. Hospital USM has recently officialised the formation of Combined Surgical- Oncology Clinic. HUSM is the only Oncology-Radiotherapy Centre in the East- coast of Peninsula Malaysia and hence a Tertiary Refferal Centre for all cancer patients that require multimodal therapy. In line with my interest in Digestive Surgical Oncology, I am a crucial member of this team. Special Procedures and Operations Performed (USM - Malaysia) : 1. Diagnostic and Therapeutic, Upper and Lower Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. Weekly elective schedule and Emergency services. I perform diagnostic upper endoscopy with a prospect of starting Chromoendoscopy in routine practice soon. As emergency therapy, I conduct sclerosant injection for bleeding oesophageal varices and adrenaline injection for bleeding peptic ulcers. Other therapeutic 45
    • procedures : foreign body removal, Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) insertion, snare polypectomy (during upper and lower endoscopy) 2. Diagnostic and Therapeutic, Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography. Weekly routine schedule and Emergency services. Diagnostic procedures include biopsies and exfoliative cytology. Therapeutic procedures : papillotomy, stone lithotripsy, endoprosthesis and exoprosthesis insertion and foreign body removal 3. Routine Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy 4. Selective Laparoscopic Appendectomy 5. Selective Laparoscopic Hernioplasty (TAPP) 6. Routine Diagnostic / Staging Laparoscopy for gastrointestinal tumours 7. Choledochoscopy for difficult biliary surgery 8. Thoracoscopy (VATS - Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery) - Diagnostic and Therapeutic. Pulmonary wedge biopsy for diagnosis and pulmonary metastasectomy for resectable soft tissue tumour secondaries. I also regularly utilize Stereotactic CT localization with the new Helical CT scan prior to VATS. 9. Thoracotomy – for Non-cardiac Thoracic surgery and Anterior Access for Spinal Surgery 10. Radical Oesophagectomy. Two-field and Three-field Lymphadenectomy in oesophagectomy for resectable Oesophageal cancers. 11. D2 and D3 Lymphadenectomy in Gastrectomy for resectable Stomach cancers 12. Liver resections of varying degrees. Although there is no case suitable for formal segmental resection thus far, I have been using the Ultrasonic Dissector in performing hepatotomy and minor non-segmental resections. 13. Bilio-digestive bypasses of various complexities. 14. Pancreatic resections 15. Rectal procedures - Abdominoperineal resections Low Anterior resections Novel non-resectional procedure(Alcoholization) 16. Adrenalectomy 17. Lichtenstein Hernioplasty for Inguinal Herniae. I have popularized this universally accepted gold standard procedure in the treatment of adult hernias in HUSM. HUSM is perhaps one of the few major hospitals in the country that performs this operation routinely. 46
    • 18. Routine use of Staplers in the performance of anastomosis in open surgery and some laparoscopic procedures. 19. The use of Harmonic Scalpel in laparoscopic and open surgery.
