Inaugural Denton A. Cooley Fellow of Surgical Innovation named at Texas Children's Hospital
Date:5/6/2013

agmatic hernia, spina bifida and other congenital malformations throughout his entire career. Most recently, Dr. Olutoye and his colleagues altered the standard of care for repairing diaphragmatic hernias by operating earlier than previously recommended, resulting in improved outcomes. This example of reassessment and technique adjustment highlights a key lesson in innovation – to challenge standard notions and constantly look for ways to improve.

"Surgery by definition is always innovative as we continuously evolve and adapt to new technologies," explains Olutoye. "My life's work is to find ways of helping children through my surgical research and I am honored to be recognized as this year's recipient."

The award includes more than $100,000 to support a research fellow who will investigate a specific topic. Olutoye will use the grant to fund necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) research, a gastrointestinal disease involving infection and inflammation that causes destruction of the bowel. Specifically, Olutoye and the recipient will study the diagnosis of the disease and how to properly identify it before it becomes symptomatic in an attempt to reduce morbidity and mortality rates.

While NEC incidents are declining, mortality for the disease is still approximately 50 percent. More importantly, diagnosis remains difficult, and in many cases, physicians falsely treat premature infants for NEC out of fear that it may develop. By catching the condition early and ruling out the possibility of NEC for those babies who will never develop it, outcomes will vastly improve.

"This award provides the support needed to improve the care and treatment of a specific population of premature infants and give them the healthiest possible start to life," says Olutoye. "It is a blessing to be a part of people's lives and make an impact on their well-being every day."

Currently, the fellowship award is only open to internal candidates,
