Robert Parry is a surgeon, by his profession. But, more than just a surgeon he’s a real human being. The director of pediatric surgery at Akron Children’s Hospital in Akron, Ohio, is in news for his unique way of making his little patients happy. After he puts down the scalpel, Parry draws some cute drawings to hide their post-surgery scars with amusing cartoon drawings.
A mom whose daughter was Parry’s patient said his illustration changed the entire hospital experience.
“There is an incredible amount of stress any time a child is ill,” Christina Potts Whipkey told CNN.“When there is a surgical schedule, parents work hard to hide their fear of the procedure, the financial stress of the situation, and their terror of something going wrong.
“The doctor told Kennedy and her siblings she would have a lovely butterfly after she was done.
When Kennedy came out, everyone was excited to see what the doctor meant.Kennedy was so proud of the pretty bandage and not concerned about any scars. ”
Parry has performed over 10,000 surgeries, as he is working at the hospital since 2011.
“It’s been a pretty special thing for everyone. It’s fun for me to do, the parents and the children really enjoy it and even the whole medical staff likes to get in on it,” the doctor told CNN.
“Whenever one of my kids arrive in the recovery room, the nurses all like to take a look to see what dressing the child got.I think it just makes everyone, I included, feel good. ”
He said each drawing takes him only five minutes to create.
