Live Operating Room Tweet Transcript: Centennial's First Robotic-Assisted Bariatric Surgeries
February 08, 2012
Nashville, Tenn., (February 7, 2012) – As a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence, Centennial Center for the Treatment of Obesity works to bring our patients the latest technology both in and out of the operating room.
On February 1, 2012, we were able to merge those technologies as Dr. Hugh Houston performed the first robotic-assisted bariatric surgeries at the Women’s & Children’s Hospital at Centennial. While our patients and surgeon were able to benefit from the latest technology in the operating room, we were thrilled to be able to share the surgical experience around Nashville, Middle Tennessee and maybe even around the world via a LIVE Twitter feed during both surgeries.
“The bariatric community is a very close-knit group. We support each other and want to constantly stay in touch,” explained Pam Davis, Director of Centennial’s Center for the Treatment of Obesity and an 11-year patient of the program. “Social media allows us to keep our followers abreast of all of the current events we provide to our patients as well as keeping them informed and motivated.”
