He was one of the fi rst sur- geons in the country to perform laparoscopic chole- cystectomy, fi rst to present the operation at a national society, and in 1990 gave the fi rst description of a preperitoneal inguinal hernia repair with mesh using laparoscopic techniques. He also was contributing editor to one of the fi rst surgical laparoscopy text- books, as well as journal editor and surgical teacher. After 35 years as a general surgeon in Minnesota, Schultz is now a serial entrepreneur specializing in the removal of smoke and bioaerosols, which are by-products of open surgery. He holds over 40 patents on various surgical topics. "I continue to thank and credit the admissions committee for the Class of 1964 for seeing my potential, and work to repay the UofL School of Medicine for the opportunity they provided me," said Schultz.
