Children's Miracle Network funds purchased a Quiet Cast Saw that removes a child's cast in half the time of a traditional cast remover. It is also significantly quieter, which helps to minimize a child's emotional stress. Children's Miracle Network also purchased a child-friendly pediatric exam table that gives staff better access to their young patients.

Children's Miracle Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of children by raising funds for equipment, research, patient programs and services. To learn more about Children's Miracle Network or make a donation, visit http://www.pennstatehershey.org/cmn

I'm Dr. Bill Hennrikus, I'm the Medical Director of pediatric orthopedics here at the Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital.
We have two handsome boys who are here to have their casts removed.
And, due to the great generosity of the Children's Miracle Network, we have been able to purchase this silent or quiet cast saw.
And this is a great advance over prior cast saws because it's very quiet and doesn't scare the children when we remove the cast.
It almost works as a can opener as it removes the cast, and it's very, very quiet; less anxiety and less fear on the part of the children.
And I'll ask Mike just to turn on the traditional cast saw that we use, as a comparison.

So you can imagine that in as many situations as possible, we're going to utilize this cast saw to remove the cast, so that the child has a much better pleasant experience when they're here at the Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital Orthopedic Clinic.
In addition, the Children's Miracle Network has also generously donated this beautiful table, which is a child-friendly table for the office in which there is a little spot on the bottom of the table in which the children can play, and the children look at this almost as a playground device table rather than coming to the doctor's office.
So your donations to the Children's Miracle Network allow us to purchase items such as the quiet cast saw and the children's pediatric orthopedic table.
So pick up the phone, give us a call, and make any donation that you possibly can. Thank you.
