Charis Chambers and her brother Wesley Chambers recently performed a laparoscopic hysterectomy on a patient at their local hospital.

Laparoscopic hysterectomy – a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the uterus. A small incision is made in the belly button and a tiny camera is inserted. The surgeon watches the image from this camera on a TV screen and performs the operative procedure.

Charis shared a picture on Instagram and expressed how amazing it is to be able to perform surgery with her brother.

Getting to do surgery on any day is an amazing experience. Getting to do surgery with my brother- even more amazing!

This week I got to perform a complex laparoscopic procedure with my brother, Dr. Wesley C. Chambers. His presence, partnership, and support throughout the case were literally the best gift that he has ever given me as his sister.

I thank God for the opportunity to surgically treat my patients in need, and especially for the opportunity to do so with family by my side. 

Charis and Wesley were inspired to become doctors by their father, Dr. Crandall Chambers. They are all credential surgeons and Board Certified OBGYNs.

My father was the first physician that I ever knew and he spoke to us often about his work.  I loved how passionate he was about serving his patients and improving their lives with medical or surgical treatment.

They all work together at their family practice in Columbus Ga., Chambers OBGYN.

Dr. Charis, Dr, Wesley, and their father Dr, Crandall also all attended HBCUs. Dr. Crandall attended Morehouse (’83) and Meharry (’88), Dr. Wesley attended Morehouse (’06), and Dr. Charis attended Spelman (’10).

The Chambers Doctor trio is an amazing story of black excellence.
