REDLANDS, Calif--   Two local Inland Empire physicians will be featured in an “American Health Journal” TV episode to air on KTLA-TV, Channel 5 on Sunday, March 21 at noon.  The show will spotlight two Redlands Community Hospital physicians, Karim Trousarkissian, MD, OB/GYN physician at Beaver Medical Group, and Paul Ennis, MD, Medical Director of Home Health Services and Redlands-Yucaipa Medical Group.


A portion of the program will feature Dr. Toursarkissian, who will discuss gynecologic procedures performed using the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System. Dr. Toursarkissian is one of the few select gynecologists in California using the robotic equipment. The da Vinci® is one of todays most advanced alternative surgical method being offered to patients at Redlands Community Hospital.
“For complex gynecologic procedures and certain surgeries, robot-assisted surgery with the da Vinci® Surgical System may be the most effective, least invasive treatment option,” says Toursarkissian. “Through tiny incisions, surgeons using the da Vinci System can operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain and risks associated with larger incisions while increasing the likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.”
