Dr. Nicholas White talks with Ken Ard by skype about robotic-assisted surgery as a form of minimally invasive surgery on November 29.
McLeod Surgeon Dr. Nicholas White and McLeod Hospice Volunteer Coordinator Courtney Sullivan were guests on the Live 95 “Good Morning Pee Dee” radio show hosted by Ken Ard on Thursday, November 29.
Dr. White, a Board Certified General Surgeon, explained the process of robotic-assisted surgery to Ard. Dr. White detailed how the surgeon sits at a console in the operating room, viewing the surgical site through high-definition magnified 3-D imagery and how the surgeon’s hand, wrist and finger movements guide the robot’s every move.
Sullivan spoke with Ard about the care McLeod Hospice provides to patients and families as well as the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony scheduled for Thursday, December 6 at McLeod Regional Medical Center.
