Medical Student Wins Golden Globe for Laparoscopic Cinematography in ‘Emergent Lap Chole’

  • 946

BROOKLYN, NY – Third-year medical student Praveen Chandiram has been awarded the first Golden Globe in Laparoscopic Cinematography for his work in an emergent cholecystectomy performed at Lutheran Medical Center.

The film, directed by attending surgeon Dr. Mohan Kilrupathi, features some of the finest camera-work by a medical student seen to date, filled with dramatic cut-aways and smooth, suspenseful zooms on bleeders.

“Laparoscopic camera work is something that can’t really be taught, it has to be felt… it has to come from the heart,” said Dr. Kilrupathi, who also received a nomination for Best Director in a Laparoscopic Film.

“Praveen is one of those students that you can’t help but trust with your camera.  You look at his work and think to yourself, ‘That’s a guy that knows what he’s doing.'”

When asked for comment, Mr. Chandiram said, “I honestly have no idea what any of those buttons or knobs do.  Seriously, if someone has a manual for that thing, that would be awesome.”

Fellow award-winner Martin Scorsese is rumored to have interest in hiring Chandiram for his upcoming documentary on the Spleen entitled “Mystery.”  Although Chandiram’s camera work was celebrated, the film received an onslaught of scrutiny from critics for poor performances by its leading roles.  Actor Gall C. Bladder’s performance is described by Roger Ebert as “lifeless” and “necrotic.”  The actor was not available for comment.
