Cedars-Sinai Physicians Team Up for Editorial in Surgical Endoscopy

Several Cedars-Sinai surgeons collaborated on an editorial that has been published in the journal Surgical Endoscopy. "Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: First, Do No Harm; Second, Take Care of Bile Duct Stones" was published online in January.

Cedars-Sinai surgeons listed among the 18 authors are George Berci, MD, the late Leon Morgenstern, MD, Brendan Carroll, MD, David Fermelia, MD, Edward Phillips, MD, and Harry Sax, MD.

Berci, who is listed first, calls the editorial "a very important paper to draw attention to the increased incidence of ductal injuries after laparoscopic cholecystectomy and the need for well-trained surgeons to remove ductal stones in the first operative session."
