Michael G. Caty, MD, MMM, is the new chief of pediatric surgery for the Department of Surgery and Yale Medical Group, and pediatric surgeon-in-chief of Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital (YNHCH), sees exciting potential to take pediatric surgery here to a new level.
As a clinician interested in research, Dr. Caty is drawn to minimally invasive surgical techniques, as well the development of an unusual imaging technique called “augmented reality,” which involves creating 3-D models of organs so that the surgeon can see the insides of the organs. ”It will change the way we think about surgery and diagnostics,” he said. In addition, he is working on developing prototypes that will make it possible to repair esophageal atresia with an endoscopic approach.
