Retired U.S. Navy Capt. (Dr.) Robert F. Browning and U.S. Navy Capt. (Dr.) Sean McKay, dubbed as the "dynamic duo," recently partnered to advance medical care for warfighters and improve outcomes for patients by performing the first robotic bronchoscopy within the Defense Health Agency.
WRNMMC, Bethesda, Md. –
When you meet retired U.S. Navy Capt. (Dr.) Robert F. Browning and U.S. Navy Capt. (Dr.) Sean McKay, you quickly realize these two talented surgeons have a mutual admiration society, each capable of finishing the other’s sentences after having worked together for more than a decade.
“Our friendship is built on trust and respect,” McKay shared - understanding that Browning maintains a low profile despite being a renowned military surgeon for whom Walter Reed’s Department of Interventional Pulmonology is honorably named.
Browning and McKay have partnered to advance medical care for warfighters and improve patient outcomes by developing creative protocols to detect lung cancer during the earliest stages, exponentially increasing the likelihood of saving a patient’s life.
