Cape physicians attend urology symposium

Two Cape Girardeau physicians were among more than 300 specialists from around the world to attend the second annual World Robotic Urology Symposium held recently at Ohio State University Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio. Dr. Gregg S. Hallman and Dr. J. Russell Felker, urologic surgeons with Cape Girardeau Urology Associates, in February 2006 introduced the region to robotic-assisted prostatectomy using the da Vinci Surgical System. Since then, more than 100 robotic-assisted prostatectomies have been performed at Southeast Missouri Hospital, exceeding initial expectations for use of the system. Speakers at the Columbus symposium included some of the world's leading experts in robotic-assisted surgery. Dr. Hallman has been a member of the medical staff at Southeast since 2001. Dr. Felker has been a member of the medical staff at Southeast since 1979. Both physicians hold certification through the American Board of Urology and are fellows of the American College of Surgeons. Dr. Hallman and Dr. Felker also have been selected as proctors to assist other surgeons in learning robotic surgery.
