The Pet Doctor - Episode 203 How Sea Hunt, Mary Poppins and Leeches are Advancing Veterinary Medicine
December 12, 2014•34 min
I may be showing my age-I remember Lloyd Bridges (yes, that is Beau and Jeff Bridges’ dad) and his American television undersea adventure series of the 1960s- Sea Hunt (OK- it was the reruns). It seemed like he was forever saving scuba divers who were suffering with the bends with the use of a decompression chamber. And who hasn’t seen the movie "Mary Poppins" and didn’t sing along with the song ‘a Spoon Full of Sugar’? Well veterinary medicine is using hyperbaric oxygen, sugar and leeches... yes, those blood sucking creatures from medieval times to treat and cure myriad animal maladies (and this isn’t by a bunch of fringe, quake doctors). My guest is Dr. Nicole Buote. She a board certified veterinary surgeon who practices in Los Angeles and has special interests in advanced wound repair, cancer reconstructive surgery, minimally invasive procedures including laparoscopy, thoracoscopy, arthroscopy and interventional radiology techniques.
