When Ray Miller was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, he and his wife Jill feared the worst. His doctor referred him to Sarasota Memorial Gastrointestinal Oncologist Kenneth Meredith, MD, who has performed more robotic esophagectomies than anyone else in the world. At Sarasota Memorial, Dr. Meredith and hospital's highly skilled robotic team performed a robotic-assisted esophagectomy. Not only did it remove Ray's cancer, it also resulted in a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery.  Learn more by watching the video.

Non surgical treatments help diagnose, treat neck and back pain
When conservative treatments fail to relieve your neck or back pain, consider seeking help from a board certified pain care physician before surgery. In this video, Sarasota Memorial Pain Care Specialist Lindsay Shroyer, MD, explains how non-surgical treatments, such as  injections, can provide relief while also serving as a diagnostic tool to help identify the source of the pain.

The Sarasota County Public Hospital Board, the governing body of Sarasota Memorial Health Care System, recently appointed James "Jim" Meister to Seat 1 in the Northern District. 
He will serve on the unpaid nine-member hospital board until the election in 2016, filling the seat vacated by Richard “Dick” Merritt who announced last month that he was stepping down to move back to the Midwest to be with his family. 
Mr. Meister served on the board's Audit Committee from 2010 to 2014 and currently is a member of the Mission and Planning Committee.
