When 5-month-old Cameron Herrick, of Redford, arrived at Botsford Hospital's Emergency and Trauma Center from his daycare center, he was ashen and lifeless. He had inhaled a whole pacifier and was barely breathing. It was only because of a skillful team of attending physicians, surgeons, residents, nurses, and anesthesiologists that Cameron survived.
Each and every day, Botsford patients like Cameron have extraordinary outcomes.
This issue of HealthSource is all about Botsford Hospital's smaller size and big results. You'll learn about an innovative, minimally invasive robotic surgical procedure, the first to be performed in Michigan, and a new use of radiation for treatment that is making a difference for patients with disfiguring keloids. You'll also get to know one of Michigan's leading gynecologic oncologists, Sheldon A. Weiner, M.D., and his ovarian cancer treatment.
This issue demonstrates that a hospital doesn't have to be large to have an uncompromising commitment to excellence and quality. Certainly, Cameron's family can attest to that!
