Great Doctor Ling Ran - Chapter 874
Great Doctor Ling Ran Chapter 874 – Why?
“He used titanium clips on the bile canaliculus, sutured the main bile ducts directly, and then used the endotherm knife to stop the bleeding, huh? Doctor Ling’s bleeding control is quite good.”
“Looking at it now, the exposure of the operating field is pretty clear.
“Yeap… the incisional edge is clear.”
When Wei Jiayou got serious, his understanding of Ling Ran’s operation immediately rose by one level, and his expression also changed slightly.
Yu Yuan listened to him muttering to himself, and she could not help but glance at Wei Jiayou before looking at his hand movements, quickly growing entranced. Then, she observed carefully for a few seconds, and surprisingly, she felt a slight pang of envy.
When it came to mastering surgical information, having followed Ling Ran in hundreds of operations, her theoretical foundation was solid. It could be said that she had some understanding of everything no matter how big or trivial it was.
However, when she moved down the skill tree of the medical field and arrived at the bottom, which was practical application, Yu Yuan always felt herself falling short.
This was like how a non-athlete commentator or an amateur athlete did sports reviews. There would always be a difference in levels between them and professional athlete commentators. This will be especially prominent when they commented about the players’ actions on the field and how filthy their locker rooms were. At the end of the day, they could only obtain information about those things through rumors and gain a general idea of what went on.
For example, someone like Wei Jiayou had never performed a hepatectomy with a small incision, but he had performed all sorts of incisions when performing cardiovascular surgery. His technical skills were taught and guided by experts, and he had experience in performing liver surgery himself. The feeling he gained would not only be different, his grasp in minute details would also be completely different.
In comparison, Yu Yuan only had the role of an assistant in hepatectomy. There were plenty of times where she may only be the second or third assistant. It could be said that she never once had the opportunity to hold a living liver in person.
If she had never held a liver before, she would not be able to experience the touch of the liver in her hands, and she would not have the opportunity to cut the liver to experience how tender it was, and she would not know what the important parts were while flipping a liver over in her hands…
When Yu Yuan saw Wei Youjia’s hand movements coming to a pause, she then whispered, “Are you stealing ideas?”
“I’m just here to steal… take a glance at the operation, why would you say so?” Wei Jiayou’s hands subconsciously clenched into a fist, as if he was trying to prevent someone from seeing his finger movements.
Yu Yuan smiled, but did not speak again.
Wei Jiayou forcefully turned his head and looked at the surgery again. Then, he suddenly felt that watching the surgery was meaningless.
If he could not secretly ste… If he could not learn and learn effectively, what was the use of just watching Ling Ran performing surgery? Even if Ling Ran was handsome, he could not just watch him for a few hours.
“Doctor Ling, which do you think has the most promising development between hepatectomy with small incisions and laparoscopic hepatectomy?” Wei Jiayou broke the silence of the operating theater and ignored the gazes from the other young doctors.
Ling Ran raised his head, stretched his neck, and looked at Wei Jiayou. Then, he said, “For future development, laparoscopic hepatectomy should be more promising.”
“Isn’t it so?” Wei Jiayou did not expect Ling Ran to answer so decisively. After using an auxiliary phrase, he smiled and said, “Well, since you’re now performing a hepatectomy with a small incision, wouldn’t you be easily eliminated?”
Ling Ran thought for a while and said, “Hepatectomy with a small incision is indeed easier to nitpick.”
The young doctors and nurses in the operating theater looked at Wei Jiayou with a hostile look. This provocative act was not welcomed in any situation or place.
Wei Jiayou was willing to bear that hostility. As he was doing his show of force around the country, he had received too many various attacks, and these hostile gazes were nothing.
“Doctor Ling, you shouldn’t perform hepatectomy with small incisions just because you are young and the technique is not yet perfected. There may be some advantages in performing hepatectomy with a small incision now, but wait for another ten to twenty years, and at that time, perhaps even laparoscopy would be obsolete. It is estimated that surgical robots such as the da Vinci Surgical System would have become common. At that time, even if you can perform hepatectomy with a small incision well, what use is there to it? The patient won’t want to go through with it.” Wei Jiayou seemed to be speaking from Ling Ran’s point of view, and he sounded quite tactful.
“But the patient still needs it now.” Ling Ran turned his head around and cast Wei Jiayou a look. “And it’s just by coincidence that I have a suitable technique.
“A suitable technique?” Wei Jiayou did not really understand what he meant.
“For this patient, a hepatectomy with a small incision would be the right technique.” Ling Ran lowered his head again. While performing the operation, he said, “No matter what happens in the next ten or twenty years, that would not affect the current value of a hepatectomy with a small incision. “
“But if you spend the same amount of time you spend refining your skills with hepatectomy performed through small incisions in refining your skills with laparoscopes, you can also help many people, and there’s greater development prospects for it.” Wei Jiayou gave some input of his own ideas.
Ling Ran nodded, but said, “I agree, but small incisions would be suitable for today’s surgery. When I return to Yun Hua Hospital, I may use laparoscopes a little more.”
“Hmm? Do you know how to perform a laparoscopic hepatectomy?” Wei Jiayou furrowed his brows.
“Of course.” Ling Ran’s tone made it sound as if it was only obvious that he knew.
Wei Jiayou frowned deeply. “You just started with it, right? I searched your papers, none of them talked about laparoscopic liver resection …”
Yu Yuan interjected. “Doctor Ling doesn’t have the habit of writing two papers about one operation.”
Wei Jiayou heard her mocking tone, but still focused on Ling Ran. “Since you know how to do laparoscopic hepatectomies, why do you still perform one with a small incision?”
“Isn’t it making its use known over here right now?” Ling Ran gave a modest smile. After all, it was a technique given by the system. Although many people in his life gave him many gifts, the gifts given to him by the system were still rather hard to explain.
Wei Jiayou naturally found it more difficult to understand. “What’s the use of it making its use known here? Do you know how many times you would actually be able to use it? You can use the same amount of time and energy you spend learning this on something else, and you can improve those skills even further.”
Ling Ran saw that he was being aggressive, and he worried that it would affect the operation. Hence, he told the truth, “It doesn’t take much time and energy, so it doesn’t matter. Hmm… Nurse Liu, Lu Wenbin, please take Doctor Wei out to rest first.”
As Ling Ran watched Wei Jiayou’s face turn red with rage, he was really worried that he would rush up to the operating table.
Lu Wenbin shook his thirty-eight inch arm and took the lead to stand in front of Wei Jiayou.
Wei Jiayou’s feet did not move at all. Even when he was blocked by Lu Wenbin’s chest, he raised his voice. “I don’t believe it.”
“What do you not believe?” Lu Wenbin sighed. “Do you understand what a genius is?”
Wei Jiayou said proudly and boldly. “I have seen many genii. Genii are everywhere.”
Lu Wenbin looked down at Wei Jiayou, sighed again, turned his head around, gestured with his chin in a direction. “Look at your face and look in the mirror. Aren’t you ashamed of yourself?”
Wei Jiayou calmed down at this time, looked at Ling Ran, and slowly said, “I will apply for an abdominoscope for hepatectomy to be delivered here. We’ll see who’s right when the time comes.”
“Sure.” Ling Ran nodded. “With the relevant equipment, there would be even more choices.”
“Then, it’s settled. In at most a week, no more than ten days, I can get it over here,” Wei Jiayou said extremely boldly. It was naturally extremely difficult to transport an equipment which was worth millions across thousands of miles in one breath within a week or two.
“We will also equip Doctor Ling with a full set of equipment.” Mai Chun, who was hiding in the corner of the operating theater and holding a phone, said timidly.
