Priscilla's Story


Priscilla Mandrey - Robotic Surgery Patient

In need of a partial nephrectomy, Priscilla was concerned about the amount of recovery time it would take before she could return to the classroom. As a special-needs teacher for Lima City schools, even a slight deviation from the norm could have serious implications for her students.

At St. Rita's Medical Center, Priscilla chose minimally invasive robotic surgery because of the quick recovery time it allowed for. She also benefited from much smaller incisions which caused her less pain, less scarring and less blood loss during the operation. That meant she got back to teaching faster and with more energy than would have been possible with a conventional procedure.
