Dr. Ken Blake (left), a Sky Ridge colorectal surgeon, was the first to use one of our robotic surgical systems, which helped to replace large-incision abdominal surgeries with a minimally invasive approach. He and members of the OR team were excited to be the first in our community to offer this service.
