This prevents, as it does in humans, the formation of pres- sure stores, but when the ani- mal is anesthized, it won't turn. The waterbed also provided a sterile environment for the sur- gery and if the surgery had been performed with the elephant ly- ing on a hard surface, it would have lowered the animal's blood pressure, making it harder for her to get back on her feet after the 2.5 hour surgery. The 45-year-old elephant, Belle, had to have infected toe bones removed from her left foot to prevent further spread of the infection. A team of surgeons from the University of California at Davis, led by Doctors John Pascoe and Murray Fowler performed the operation. They were assisted by four oth - er UC Davis colleagues, includ- ing another surgeon, an anesthesiologist, and a surgical technician. The zoo's two veter- inarians also assisted. Since the surgery, Belle had showed excellent progress, how- ever the infection was much deeper than doctors thought and they were forced to put her to sleep. Although this operation has been performed in a few other cases, this was the first instance where an elephant was under general anesthesia and had to be lifted by a hoist and placed on the waterbed for 2.5 hour sur- gery. A special sling and har- ness was constructed to lift Belle. The zoo's maintenance staff installed a gate so Belle can re- main in visual and tactile con- tact with other zoo elephants but not allow them to play with her bandages. This wasn't the first time New World provided a waterbed for elephant surgery. Back in 1992 they constructed a 10,000 pound waterbed when Mardji, a 42 year old Asian elephant who stared in the film Star Wars also re- quired foot surgery. :: !: iiii!!i=!
