A video of a full knee replacement surgery, filmed by a Begasurgeon, has had more than one million hits on YouTube.

Bega orthopaedic surgeon Matthew Nott filmed, edited and uploaded the video in January 2014, but on Thursday, June 23, cheered as the viewers topped the million mark.

The entire surgery at the recently closedBega District Hospital was filmed with a head cam, which was a first for Dr Nott, and, he believes, possibly the world (on Youtube at least)!

He said most filmed surgeries he knows of are filmed with regular cameras in theatre lights.

However, the helmet-mounted camera allows viewers to get a feel for the entire theatre layout and a surgeon-eye view of the work.

“There’s been a lot of interest in this one,” Dr Nott said.

“Igetcalls about it all the time from all over the world.

“It gets about 1000 hits a day just in the US.”

The edited video footage goes for 14 minutes from scrubbing up to stitching up.

In reality, Dr Nott says this particularsurgery takes around 80 minutes “from skin to skin” then add 45 minutes for anaesthetic and 1-2 hours recovery for a patient’s four-odd hours in theatre.

This particular surgery was textbook, with a good result, even more so now.

“He’s delighted to become famous and seeing his knee get over a million hits,” Dr Nott said of his patient (whose identity is confidential).

If you’re okay with watching graphic surgical procedures, the full video is below.

Barry Mac signs off from 2ST​

THERE was no pomp, ceremony or fanfare, but on Friday popular Radio 2ST presenter Barry McCaffery completed his last shift at the station.

The man known to listeners simply as Barry Mac started at the station in 1992 and apart from a three year period where he pursued other endeavors, has been a constant as a breakfast and morning announcer as well as being program manager.

For the past 18 months he has presented a one hour show each Friday morning, discussing local news, current affairs and events.

“Friday morning’s shift was so busy I didn’t get the chance to announce it would actually be my last,” he said.

“I’ve just decided it is time to go.

“It was good to be able to leave on my terms but I was sad I didn’t get to say goodbye to all the listeners who have been fantastic over many years.”

As for the future, he intends to spend some time with his family including his granddaughter who will shortly turn one, before weighing up his options.

“I won’t be retiring,” he said. “I can’t, I have no hobbies.”

He said a highlight of his time on air was the coverage of the Shoalhaven bushfires in 2001 with his great mate, journalist Graham French.

“I will never forget that. I’d hate to think how many hours we put in on that just to keep the community informed as to what was happening,” he said.

“And the way the community rallied to help each other. It was a special time.”

He said being able to “champion“ and push many local causes was also very rewarding.

Christian Democrat backing farmers and science

Sep 19 2018 Published by under 南京夜网

CDP WA Senate hopeful Dr Mark Imisides.
Nanjing Night Net

CHRISTIAN Democratic Party (CDP) WA Senate hopeful Dr Mark Imisides wants to give primary producers greater voice in federal parliament and increase the scientific focus on delivering policy outcomes.

Dr Imisides was engaged as a chemical consultant by the Hills Orchard Improvement Group (HOIG) in Perth, to try and overturn the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority’s (APVMA) moves to ban the fruit-fly insecticide fenthion.

He said that experience showed him that politicians and bureaucrats in Canberra can make decisions that affect WA farmers “on a whim”, despite the consequences.

But Dr Imisides said if he was elected for the CDP at the July 2 poll, he’d be in a position to bring politicians and bureaucrats to account, using his scientific expertise, on issues like the banning of fenthion which impact producers’ livelihoods.

“When you look below the surface there are green tentacles worming their way into every area of our life,” he said in regards to bureaucratic challenges around environmental regulatory approvals.

“I have no idea how deep the rabbit hole goes.

“A green fog has descended on the nation and it is killing Australian businesses.

“Whether it’s the APVMA banning pesticides that have been safely used for 60 years, or the Department of Environmental Regulation telling graziers that their land is now an environmentally sensitive area that they cannot graze on, or businesses having to pay arbitrary environmental offsets, it’s about time someone that understood the science involved stood against it.”

Dr Imisides said if given the opportunity at parliamentary level would hold the APVMA to account in a way they’re not at the moment.

“Then I could get to work on the other examples of bureaucratic greentape that are stifling the nation,” he said.

“I can do this simply because I know more about the environment than they do.

“This needs someone with scientific and political clout.

“This is a once in a generation opportunity for primary producers to get a voice at federal level.”
