Leading surgeons from greater Phoenix will be on hand to answer questions about the daVinci robot and minimally invasive surgery at Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital, located near Desert Ridge.

Drs. JulieAnn Heathcott, Andrew Kassir and Mike Janicek will be on hand between 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. to talk about the northeast valley hospital's newest medical technology including urologic and gynecologic surgery with the robot.

Information about the newest surgical robot to hit the Valley, the Mako RIO system for partial knee replacements, will also be on display with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Stephan Tarlow answering questions.

Scottsdale Healthcare is the official medical sponsor of the RR Donnelly LPGA Founders Cup.

LPGA players Wendy Ward, Cindy LaCrosse and Tiffany Joh toured Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital on Tuesday, meeting orthopedic patients and taking turns on the daVinci robot in the operating room.

"Our patients really enjoyed the player visits and I think the players had fun, too, especially going into the operating room to try our daVinci robot," said Jean Knoedler, hospital administrator. "Desert Ridge is close to Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital so Wendy, Tiffany and Cindy stopped by to say hello and visit. It's nice to have a major LPGA tournament practically next door."

Six-time LPGA winner Grace Park, a Scottsdale resident, will play for the Scottsdale Healthcare Foundation as her designated charity at the Founders Cup. Park noted that her mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and she wanted to choose a local nonprofit involved in cancer treatment and research. Her choice was based on the medical expertise at the nearby Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital and the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center at Scottsdale Healthcare.
