Cerfolio, University of Alabama- Birmingham Chief of Thoracic Surgery begins by reminding his audience that there is more to life than being a great surgeon. “Every Surgeon is an athlete and the operating room is your playing field,” says Cerfolio. He talks about decision-making and OR efficiency. “Lawyers and paperwork and tradition have trumped efficiency and reasonableness…” he adds. This is a video worth viewing- presented by the most accomplished thoracic robotic surgeon in the world. Lecture, with PowerPoints and photos. 30:29
