A donation from Jerry and Marie Pinch has brought cutting-edge surgical technology to urology patients at Mercy Hospital Grayling.

The new state-of-the-art urology equipment will improve the patient's experience when undergoing a urology procedure. It allows physicians to see better than ever into the bladder and kidneys to help with diagnostic and therapeutic procedures such as removal of kidney stones, bladder surgery and cancer treatment. Patients also benefit as the high-definition camera allows the physician to increase operating speed and efficiency, lessening recovery time and surgical complications.
