      @Avi Subba NO. Surgeons are generally the prima donnas of the medical field. I've never met a humble surgeon. This surgeon is correct in saying that he shouldn't take all the credit. The OR is a very specialized place where everyone has their specific roles, and those roles don't spill over to the other. From the surgeon(s) to the assistant(s) to the techs to the nurse(s) to the anesthesiologist -- they are all integral, although, as this amazing surgeon acknowledged, it's generally the surgeon who gets all the glory. This surgeon's mindset is an exception to the rule.

      The most difficult neuro surgery in the world is the one that I suffering it's pain since birth up to now, I'm Mr Cazeem from Somalia live in India 🇮🇳 I'm 36 years old, when All neurology doctors in India said we can't do your surgery and my money completely finished I registered my self in UNHCR as a refugee for medical case help.
      I contacted so many Hospitals around the world like Mayo Clinic Rochester USA 🇺🇸 after I sent All my medical records with MRI and CT Scan CDs 💿 they said we can't do it, your surgery is very bad and difficult.
      So I'm requesting All of you to pray for me to get healthy that I waiting since 36 years.
      Thanks All of you 😘 ☺️ 😊

      I commend each of you. Medicine was what I wanted to study when I was in my teens. My mom was an occupational therapist and I would grab her biology and anatomy books and just get lost in the information. I wasn’t smart enough to get through required math so my dream went unrealized. I have the utmost respect and admiration for the people in the medical field or going into it.

    I’m a heart clinician and just in case you don’t know, 4 cases by 4pm is incredibly fast. Especially with a double valve on the 2nd case. There are some surgeons that take until 4pm to do 1 case! Fastest surgeon I’ve ever worked with does 4 cases by 6pm. How amazing.

    I am a minimally invasive robotic surgeon in his early 40’s. When I was in medical school at Cornell, some 15 years ago, I had the pleasure to watch Dr Lee perform a CABG. He is an absolute beast. A surgical GOD, if there ever were one. He’s precise and extremely efficient. To this day, I have never witnessed anyone operate like him. He is masterful. Like poetry in motion.

    This has mixed feelings for me. I was recently diagnosed with a mitral valve deformity, so someday I myself will need to get one of these procedures. But it's calming a bit to know that there is professionals seeking the best care.

    You cardiac surgeons are awesome. My husband had his first bypass when he was 39 in 1982. At that time the nurses said they’d never seen that young of a bypass patient. He had been a heavy smoker and the surgeon told him one more cigarette and your dead, and he stopped completely. However had another one in 2092, but so far at 78 his heart is good ! Sometimes you need a bit of tough love.

    After working in both vascular and general surgery as a surgical tech. I was impressed that the Dr. added that all the surgeries were because of "these talented people", the staff! Now to follow the staff for just one heart procedure - from the cleaning and sterilization of equipment, to the setting up the case & patient in the room - that would be interesting. Remember the Dr. walks out and scrubs up to do the next case with the patient already in the room. The choreographing of personnel and equipment is an amazing.

    It is a fast paced specialty. Most I worked with were focused, 2 teams, if CABG. No hesitation. They are masters at their profession. Valves replaced a bit different, dissecting aneurysms very fast paced. Long days. Deep respect. Like anyone, some a bit better. An honor working with them
