Eric Johnson’s ‘Little Heroes’ segment features Seattle Children’s patient Alex Penny.  Alex, 11, came to Seattle Children’s last week with his family as part of a Make-a-Wish Foundation event designed for him and his dream to see robots of all kinds.  At Children’s, he learned how to use the da Vinci Si Surgical System robot, with help from Dr. Tom Lendvay and Dr. John Meehan.
