Surgeons trade scalpels for pumpkin-carving tools

Posted: Updated:

Some Valley doctors traded their scalpels for pumpkin-carving tools Wednesday to carve up some scary Halloween fun! 

Approximately a dozen of Dignity Health St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center's finest surgeons were allowed out of the operating room to compete in the hospital's famed Doc-O-Lantern Pumpkin Carving Contest.

As Halloween brews, the creepy contest once again featured a giant stage to showcase the helpless Halloween pumpkins, as St. Joseph's surgeons faced-off with their sharpened carving tools to prove their superior cutting skills. 

Doctors also used their time in the spotlight to provide the community with important Halloween safety tips.
