Local surgeon performs outdoor surgery in Haiti, making a difference


DURANT, OK --  New pictures today of a local doctor, saving lives in Haiti. We've told you about Dr. Peter Hedberg all week. He flew on his own ticket to lend his expertise, to help the wounded there.

In this photo, you can see Durant's Dr. Hedberg doing surgery on a patient with a badly injured leg, this in the field, under an awning, out in the elements.
He had been operating night and day since arriving in Haiti on Saturday, and ushered into the situations where he was most needed. 
He's scheduled to be back in Texoma this weekend and we will certainly follow up with this brave doctor.
