work at the Mayo Clinic, and
seven medical illustrators try
to provide for their needs."
Today, Factor is working on
illustrations for eight Mayo
Clinic physicians who need
everything from lecture slides
to illustrations for a chapter
in a textbook. He's working
on a book that addresses
neuro-ophthalmologic (eye)
surgery. It will contain 200 il-
lustrations. The project will
take at least 10 months, Fac-
tor said.
"A physician will come to
me and say, 'I want to publish
this article I researched. I in-
vented a new way of doing a
certain procedure, and I want
you to illustrate it step by
step?'
When Factor did free-lance,
his first project was drawing
for a gastrointestinal surgery
textbook for Dr. David
Fromm, chairman of the
department of surgery at
Wayne State University.
It took Factor two years to
finish the book, which con-
tained 600 of his illustrations.
When Cutler was a student
in college, he was invited to
Oklahoma to assist in identi-
fying the John Wayne Gacy
murder victims, young, home-
less boys who were sodomized
and killed. Once there, he was
told the project was scratched
`for legal reasons; but, in-
stead of returning to Detroit,
he stayed and made
sculptures of two previously-
identified murder victims by
sculpting faces directly onto
their skulls. Another time, he
reconstructed a murder vic-
tim's skull in Detroit. He said
he found that aspect of
medical illustration exciting.
Cutler not only draws
medical illustrations, but
makes prosthetics. That is, he
replaces missing limbs with
artificial ones.
He does this by making a
cast from the patient's defect,
using the same material den-
tists use to make molds.
Cutler created a thumb for
one of his patients and an ear
for another.
He recently dissected part
of a cadaver's head and is go-
ing to draw sequential il-
lustrations to show what the
dissection is. Last month, he
painted a picture of his super-
visor as if he had all the
symptoms of superior vena
caval syndrome, when the
blood flow returning from the
upper part of a person's body
is blocked from returning to
the heart. The painting was
used for a nursing conference.
"The surgeons would come
to me with an operation they
devised, and I'd say, 'Let's
show what you did this way!
They also come to me seeking
advice on how to present

Coping with
Facial Paralysis.

A free lecture
at Providence Hospital.

.

Every year, facial paralysis strikes over 100,000 people. The
condition may be caused by Bell's palsy, tumors, strokes, or
surgery. Paralysis may result in difficulty in smiling, eye clo-
sure, or an overall distorted appearance of the face. Some
people may have abnormal movements such as tics and spasms.
In this second annual lecture, Jack M. Kartush, M.D:, a
nationally recognized surgeon and researcher in the field of
Facial Paralysis, will be discussing the recent advancements in
the field, including a new investigational drug to treat facial
spasms and biofeedback to assist in rehabilitation. Guest
speaker, Peter M. McCann, M.D., will discuss the treatment
of visual problems associated with Facial Paralysis.
If you or someone you love suffers from Facial Paralysis,
we urge you to attend this free and enlightening lecture.
Come join us on Thursday, September 14th, from 7:00 to
9:00 p.m. at the Providence Hospital Professional Medical
Building, conference room 8B, 22250 Providence Drive,
Southfield, Michigan.
