– My name’s Jeffrey Lafond. I work here at Trident Hospital in Charleston, South Carolina. My specialty’s general surgery. Been in practice here 20 years. Here, we treat our patients like we treat our family members. We try to get across to them
what their options are clearly. Certainly welcome family
members asking questions. I think our number one goal is to present the options in a clear manner that are understandable to the patient, and we want ’em to go home feeling that they picked their best option, and also understand
what we’re tryin’ to do. All three of us here have specialized training in robotic surgery. We’ve done these procedures for a long time, and a lot of them, and just like anything, the
more you do, the better you get. To our patients, we certainly
appreciate their trust in us, and we consider it an
honor to take care of ’em.
