Fixing Ribs-Haluck

Randy Haluck

As chief of minimally invasive surgery at the Penn State Medical Center, Dr. Randy Haluck had a lot of experience using a thoracoscope to do surgery in the chest through very small incisions. He thought the scope could be adapted to repair broken ribs in a way that was much less traumatic to patients than the conventional procedure.
