Jeanette had no idea this kind of surgery was even possible. Fortunately, Dr. Peterson did.
When Jeanette Cancryn came to Florida Hospital Flagler’s Emergency Department suffering from intense stomach pain, Dr. Peterson, one of only a handful of area surgeons with advanced certification in minimally invasive surgery, realized she needed a laparoscopic partial colon resection. Just five days later, Jeanette was back home.
“The most remarkable thing is, after my surgery, I wasn’t in pain," said Jeanette Cancryn, Palm Coast resident. "The day after my procedure I was able to get out of bed and walk.”
Jeanette feels fortunate Dr. Peterson was there when she needed him. He represents Florida Hospital Flagler’s commitment to offering Flagler County the finest specialists and the latest advances in medicine and technology – where and when you need them. If you’re looking for the best care around, just look around the corner.
