Dr. Brendan Murphy is a details person who sees how patients benefit when a surgeon specializes. His practice is the first in the country to receive the new Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval for Minimally Invasive Colorectal Surgery, and he is working to extend the designation to Trident Health’s South Carolina Institute for Robotic Surgery, where he leads the new colorectal surgery program. At this point, he typically uses robotics to remove cancerous tumors and perform procedures for diverticulitis. In any case, he encourages patients to ask questions as he talks with them about their treatment options. “I spend a lot of time with my patients primarily because the issues that we deal with are complicated and require a lot of explanation. That’s particularly true when you’re dealing with cancer but also when you’re dealing with conditions that are not malignant.”
