UMC Achievements

Each week we get an update from Will Ferniany, PhD, Associate Vice Chancellor and CEO of the University Hospital and Health System, at the end of each email, there is a "did you know" section which states some achievements specific to UMC. The hospital was recognized as one of the top 100 in the nation, and it is becoming more and more obvious that we are gearing up to be a world class facility. I am very proud to be a part of something so special.

Anyway...did you know that...

The world's first interventional CT surgery using a radio frequency (heated) probe to treat metastatic lung cancer occurred at UMMC.

The Medical Center was the site of the worlds first interventional MRI renal cryosurgeries to destroy kidney cancer.

A neuro-anatomist at UMC was the first to discover that the brain cells of suicide victims differ from the brain cells of people who died from other causes.
