Murrayfield hospital is on TV.

The hospital will feature in a documentary about anaesthesia during weight loss surgery. One of our lovely patients, Mr Brian Robertson was the patient undergoing surgery. 

Brian was anaesthetised by Consultant Anaethetist, Dr Anthony Pollock last year during Gastric Sleeve Surgery. The show highlights the important role of the anaesthetist during weight loss surgery. The bariatric patient group is at a higher risk of complications during general anaesthetic, Mr Pollock explains how the anaesthetist manages these risk factors to look after their patients. Mr Pollock was supporting bariatric surgeons Mr Bruce Tulloh and Mr Andrew de Beaux during the procedure.

The Big Body Squad is on channel 5  on April 9th at 8pm.

You can also see a short video diary from Brian here.
