Lisa Clark Pickett
Assistant Professor - Track IV of Surgery

a. Hernias Database: I am reviewing all the hernias performed at Duke in the last 7 years to create a resource for retrospective and prospective study of patients coming to the Duke Hernia Center. I am currently preparing a statement about the presentation/treatment of hernias in women, which I hope to present at Digestive Diseases Week/Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Track in May.
b. Surgisis Mesh: Cook Surgical has given me a $5,000 unrestricted grant for preparing a video of Surgisis mesh placement in a patient with infected ventral hernia mesh. Dr. Pappas and I continue to use this mesh in patients with infected hernias and plan to publish a case series of these cases soon.
c. Enterra Device: Dr. Pappas and I continue to work with Medtronic to place Enterra gastric pacing devices in patients with severe gastroparesis. We are one of the few sites in the country to do this via a laparoscope.
