LMC hosted art exhibit demonstrating the fusion of art and surgical innovation

Lankenau Medical Center hosted an art exhibit on April 24 to demonstrate the fusion of art and surgical innovation. The featured artist, Gerald Marks, MD, Colorectal Surgery, professor and chairman, Marks Colorectal Surgical Foundation, is known for his colorectal surgical pioneering, and also for his watercolor paintings that chronicle his international travels. His art recalls moments, people, places and events that evoke the memories of his travels as a surgeon and an artist.

This intersection of art and surgical innovation highlights Lankenau Medical Center’s minimally invasive colorectal surgical and robotics program, which is the largest in the region. Having performed thousands of procedures, colorectal surgeons at LMC utilize laparoscopic surgery over 90 percent of the time compared to the regional average of less than 50 percent of procedures.
