Mobile Teaching Lab Visits Murray Hospital

Murray-Calloway County Hospital was one of only two hospitals in Kentucky that received a visit from a mobile operating room, as part the Covidien Innovation Tour showcasing the minimally invasive SILS procedure. The tour is stopping in 80 cities nationwide. The technique leads to faster recovery times for patients, and less scarring, according to Covidien surgical device representative Jamie Smith.
