Army Surgeon Maj. (Dr.) Morgan Barron, a general surgeon at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital recently spoke about his experience performing robotically-assisted surgery at military treatment facilities within the Military Health System. Robotically assisted surgery provides surgeons better visualization and greater mobility and can mean less post-operative pain, shorter hospital stays and fast recovery time for patients.
