Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thuiiday, April 13, 1971 THE LETrlBRIDGI HIRA.VD Q Acupuncture operations termed superior WASHINGTON (A P) AcupuncUifc ojicralions wit- nessed in China have con- vinced President Nixon's per- sonal physician "IhaL Ihcy have somclliing very superior lo our inclliocl or ancstliesia." Dr. Walter Tkach said also "I Uiink it wouW be great" it some Chinese sur- geons came to Hie next Amer- ican Medical Association con- A HAIRY MATTER-Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., jrnoolhns Ihe back of his licod jusl before liolding a news conference in Washington. His rerenl hoir transplant above his forehead is evidenl. fcntiou to demonstrate Ihe in- sertion o! long, thin needles into tlic uody to kill pain duv- ing surgery. Such an idea al- ready has been proposed by Dr. Wesley Hall, AMA presi- dent. Tkacli indicated in an inter- view Tuesday lliat he will do all he can to have the White House join in issuing an invi- tation to China lo send sur- gcniis for a demonstration at the AMA's June session in San FiXicisco. The president's physician disclosed also that while he was in Peking he requested that groups o[ American doc- tors be allowed to go to China and lie given first-hand train- ing in acupuncture, at least in its nse as an anesthetic. "But so far, I've had no re- he said. Tkach declared himself much impressed with the use of anesthetic acupuncture, the insertion into the body of long needles followed by applica- tion of an electric current t h r o u g li the needles. He added r LKSS DANGER "It's something we had bel- ter learn about and make use of clinically as a possible whole new kind of anesthetic that would be free of the dan- gers of what we call 'systemic traumas' (adverse effecls on bodily systems) from the anesthetics we presently use." Tiie While House physician said also, in answer to ques- tions, that while he had no first-hand knowledge of Ihe effectiveness of acupuncture as a treatment for conditions sucli as deafness, he has "no reason to believe that they would want to falsify" claims they have made on such things. He said that on Feb. 21, he and Dr. W. Kenneth Hilond, a New York osteopalliic physi- cian, witnessed three opera- tions nt Peking's Friendship Hospital. They involved surgical re- movals of: A cataract from the left eye of a man, 89; thyroid tumor from a woman, and a cyst from the ovary of another woman, 37, who also had her fallopian tubes tied oi'f. In each case, surgery was M minutes after the needles were inserted, and "Ihe patients were alert, we talked to them during the sur- gery, and all of them reported they experienced no pain." "All three operations were done within an hour, and the surgery itself was absolutely beautiful, almost artistic. The dissection was just beautiful."
