Robotic surgery is revolutionizing how surgeons operate, and Mercy Hospital is at the forefront. “We can do complex operations with small scars, operations that used to require big incisions,” says Steven Henriques, Chief Of Surgery at Mercy Hospital. “This results in less pain and faster recovery than with a larger incision. The machines feature enhanced hi-definition 3D vision. By working in tighter spaces, you can see the nerves and blood vessels easier, resulting in less blood. The robots also offer more mobility and precision.” The machines enhance a surgeon’s capability with arms that have been engineered to precisely mimic the movement of the surgeon’s fingers, wrists and hands as controlled by the surgeon while he sits at the console. They are presently being used for gynecological, urologic and general surgery procedures. “We’ve had a robotic program in the past at Mercy Hospital; but now the program is more robust than ever with three robots as robotic surgery becomes a much more popular option.”; MercyHospital.com.
After spending so many months at home in our leggings, sweatpants and basic tees, this season is about total everything! We want it all: Stunning scarves, wow dresses, show-stopping shoes, distinctive men’s formalwear — even our leisurewear is being taken to the next level. It’s a bold statement on the resilience of human nature as interpreted in haute style.
With Autumn on the horizon, we may not have fallen leaves to look forward to but we do have the sun shining down on us and a newfound hope for what the rest of the year will bring our way.
