1431: this is why I just need one chop

For routine cataract cases, I can perform just one phaco chop to split the nucleus into two halves and then then emulsify each hemi-nucleus. One chop is all it takes because of the 5 mm diameter of the capsulorhexis and the average 2-3+ nuclear sclerosis of my routine patients. In addition, I employ a special surgical maneuver where, after splitting the nucleus into two halves, I use the chopper to pull one half away to create additional space so that the phaco probe can bring the other half out of the capsular bag. This video shows a routine case in our Beverly Hills surgery center where we deliver the best cataract surgery in all of Los Angeles.
