HEALTH BEAT ROBOTICS In addition, Leach says her recovery


wasn’t nearly as difficult as she imagined. “I was surprised that I didn’t have a lot of pain,” says Leach. “I had superficial irritation for a few weeks, but it definitely wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I had some atypical cells, but the growth wasn’t malignant.


I


consider myself lucky.” As a former nurse with many years of


expertise in cardiac medicine, Sallquist expected the worst, but was pleasantly surprised. “My whole recovery was uneventful,” she says.


“I was very nervous


about the surgery, but I was just amazed at how well it went. Dr. Sinha instilled so much confidence, which is unusual for me,” Sallquist says with a laugh.


“After I met


with her I thought, if anyone can do this, she can!” For Dr. Sinha, bringing this cutting-edge


procedure right here to Spokane with the help of Rockwood and Deaconess has been quite an accomplishment. For Sallquist, it’s a relief and a blessing. “I’m glad it’s gone,” she says. “I just can’t tell you how wonderful the experience was. I expected pain, soreness or at least a sore throat – but I didn’t have any trouble at all.”

field of medicine,” says Dr. Sinha, who earned her medical degree from The Ohio State University, completed residency and fellowship programs at the University of California-Davis and The Ohio State University


and served as an associate


professor of surgery at the University of Arizona College of Medicine. “Robotic technology will continue to make surgery more accessible and safe for areas of the body that are anatomically difficult to reach, such as the oral cavity, chest and base of the skull.” “We want to provide our patients with the


safest, most accurate, least painful surgery possible,” says Dr. Sinha. “We know from experience that’s minimally invasive surgery. Technology is here to stay, and robotics will be a big part of what we do as surgeons in the future. I have no doubt about that.”
