IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: TOMOAKI KATO - SURGEON

Rate this Entry
 Kato
The New York Times today reports on a surgery that is heroic in scope. Japanese-born Tomoaki Kato, a surgeon at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia led a 43-hour operation to remove a massive tumor(the size of a football) that had engulfed the liver and other vital organs of a 59 year old man who had been told the tumor was inoperable. Dr. Kato is a pioneer in ex vivo resections which are surgeries where the affected organs are taken outside the body, operated on to remove tumors and then sewed back in. The surgery seems to have succeeded and this pioneering form of surgery may become more common in the future based on Dr. Kato's early success.
