Job Description

The following is the entire script. It's the intro to a video that will give the background of a medical procedure, followed by the actual procedure vo'd by the doctor.

"In 1943,World War 2 raged across Europe. An assistant surgeon at the John Radcliffe Infirmary, in Oxford England, was discouraged about the large numbers of recurrent hernias reported at that time. According to legend, George Edward Moloney was left in England working with the least experienced medical students and junior surgical trainees while the bulk of the more senior surgeons were on the European Continent tending to wounded Brittish Soldiers. Hernia repairs performed at that time were a complex combination of transition sutures and relaxing incisions, and an inexperienced operator could easily botch the job and end up with a repair that would fail. Mr. Moloney described a repair using a new suture material made of monofilament nylon. His “Darn” technique was said to be so easy to perform “that even a medical student could do it correctly”. In 1948 he reported his results in “The Lancet”. Thus a successful tension free hernioplasty was described 18 years before Dr. Lichtenstein’s operation was reported. Since the advent of the Lichtenstein repair Mr. Moloney’s operation has faded into relative obscurity. Today we present the technique of a modified Moloney Darn, a modern tension free, mesh free repair."
