Surgery on Sunday volunteers help those in need

On Nov. 15, 60 volunteers, including physicians, surgeons, nurses and administrative staff, gave their time at the monthly Surgery on Sunday. The surgeries were performed at the Lexington Surgery Center at no cost for patients who were unable to pay.

The physicians and surgeons included Paul Kearney, Fred Hadley, Trevor Wilkes, John Stewart, Ross Tekulve, J. Martin Favetto, Andre Moore II, Wayne Graff and Phil Hall.

The surgeries performed included gallbladder removal, hernia repairs, circumcisions, rotator cuff repair, carpal tunnel release and colonoscopies.

Surgery on Sunday performs the third Sunday of every month. The next surgery date will be Jan. 17.
