Cool Day on the Job

I should have been a nurse or something.  I would say surgeon, but I don't honestly believe I should have been a surgeon.

In any event, I got to hang out in the OR today and got to watch a number of procedures that were in progress.

The coolest of which was probably a uterine fibroid surgery being done with our DaVinci Robot.

The operator is across the room from the patient.  CRAZZYY.

Super exciting though.  I was definitely a little awestruck.

Also saw an aortic ablation, a full knee replacement, and a spinal surgery.

Impressive, all the way around!

This is moi, in my PPE!  (Personal Protective Equipment....ie THE BUNNY SUIT!)
