Future of Thoracic Surgery, New Masters

TedTalks about the New Masters of Thoracic Surgery

It looks like even the illustrious and élite Ted Talks have taken notice of the New Masters of Thoracic Surgery – these visionary, game-changing surgeons who are revolutionizing the thoracic surgery specialty.

The Spanish-language lecture entitled, “El viaje de los pioneros: Dr. Diego Gonzalez Rivas” should be just as inspiring to readers/ and viewers as it is to Cirugia de Torax.

If you don’t speak Spanish – don’t despair!  Dr. Gonzalez’ TED talk is now available with captions in multiple languages.  (Click on the closed captioning icon for translation options.)

Sometimes, it’s lonely out front – and being innovative is difficult.  It’s one thing to be Ivor Lewis, Pearson or McKeown but it’s another to be the first or sole surgeon to challenge edicts and procedures laid down by the giants of the specialty.  But without the modern-day Dylewskis, Gonzalez Rivas, Chen, (and others) – technology within the specialty would remain static.

These surgeons take big risks with their careers and reputations by attempting to deviate from long-standing surgical traditions.  But sometimes, it pays off – and when it does, it is wonderful to see these daring and forward thinkers receive the admiration and appreciation they deserve for their contributions to the field and to their patients.
