   YOUR OFFICIAL 4-H GUIDE TO THE FAIR


The Scioto County Fair.......it’s all for the kids.
 2 KIDs (18 & Under) Enters 10 am - 2 pm for Price of 1
                                    - RIDE ALL DAY-
Incredibly the size
of the incision for
minimally invasive
heart surgery at SOMC
is approximately
this big.




Jo, Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery Patient



                                                     At SOMC we perform over 50% of our
                                                     open-heart operations in the minimally
                                                     invasive fashion. That is much greater
                                                     than the national average of 5%. When
                                                     a patient has minimally invasive heart
                                                     surgery they will encounter less pain,
                                                     less scarring and less recovery time.


                                                     Sometimes making the smallest
                                                     impressions makes the biggest difference.
