Since 2014, the Medical Center's Heart Team has given patients new life and added quality of life through transcatheter aortic valve replacement. The American College of Cardiology is recognizing UMMC’s team approach to TAVR and its excellence in care by naming the Medical Center the state’s first and only accredited Transcatheter Valve Center.
Dr. George Russell, a longtime UMMC surgeon, is taking on a new and forward-thinking administrative role. Effective July 1, he’s stepping out of his leadership of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation to serve as CEO of University Physicians' physician practice.
For years now, UMMC, through the Asylum Hill Project, has been on a mission to memorialize the remains of patients from the state’s first mental institution. With an appropriation from state lawmakers during the recently completed legislative session, that effort has realized a breakthrough.
Dr. Penny Rogers vividly remembers coming to the Medical Center as a teenager to visit her brother, who was a patient in the old Children's Circle area long before Batson Children's Hospital had been built. The comforting interaction with the pediatric health care team drew her back to the Jackson campus to study occupational therapy. Now the newly minted professor of occupational therapy has been named the 2021 SHRP Alum of the Year.
There’s a reason why it's a good idea for children to wash their hands after playing outside: Soil-borne parasites can cause serious health problems in children and adults, UMMC experts say.
