BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – A local doctor appeared Tuesday on a national TV show.
Dr. Dennis Orr is a laparoscopic surgeon practicing in Boardman and he appeared on Tuesday’s episode of “The Doctors” on CBS. He explained an unusual surgery he performed at a local hospital to remove a 2-inch piece of broccoli that was stuck in a patient’s intestines.
“I was able to make a cut in the small bowel and pull out this whole piece of broccoli, which was quite unusual. Never seen before or heard of happen before and we sewed up the bowel, I removed the piece of broccoli, did everything through three small incisions without resecting the bowel, the patient did well and actually was sent home the very next day from the hospital,” Dr. Orr said.
Dr. Orr said he received star treatment while on the show, even getting special attention from the makeup artist of Dr. Phil.
