Patient operated on during Jan. storm heads home

Patient heads home

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Back at the end of January, Doctor Zenko, a brain surgeon at Brookwood Hospital, left the facility on foot, and walked six miles to Trinity, to perform a life-saving operation for Army Veteran Tony Robinson.

Tony arrived at Trinity, plagued with a brain bleed, a condition that left him paralyzed and unable to communicate. Now a month and half later, he’s not only talking, he’s walking out of the hospital doors, with help from a cane and his wife, Andrea.

Andrea Robinson “We thank God that he placed him here, that he was able to get here, and God gave him the ability to do what he did.” – Andrea Robinson

Tony still has a long road ahead, one that will be filled with rehab, and medical follow-ups. But he says he’s looking forward to the challenge, and his home.
