      A new doctor at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital is offering some skills no one else has in this region.

      Dr. Peter Hinds is the only urologist fellowship trained in urologic oncology and robotic surgery in Southwest Georgia.

      Dr. Hinds was introduced Thursday morning at Phoebe's Board of Directors meeting and says he has one goal in his new job.

      "To be able to offer the patients of Southwest Georgia the opportunity to stay here at home and get all of their care here at Phoebe without going to Florida or going many hours to get these surgeries," Dr. Hinds said.

      Dr. Hinds received his training in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and now lives with his wife and son in Albany.
