"There's a saying in pediatric surgery that, 'You don't just save a life - you save a lifetime.' For Banks, that's really true."

Thanks to their instincts and a collaborative effort with the pediatric surgical team and emergency department at MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital, baby Banks is now thriving. Thank you Dr. McDuffie and the entire multidisciplinary team!
