Dr. David Sugarbaker comes to Texas, and too much of a good thing!

Big reputations and legendary surgeons require big opportunities – and as everyone knows; every thing is bigger in Texas.

Dr. David Sugarbaker, one of the legendary American thoracic surgeons has left his position at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston to join Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center in Houston, Texas.

Dr. Sugarbaker comes to Texas to lead the new Lung Institute at the College of Medicine (Baylor University).

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this means I have another chance to cross paths with Dr. Sugarbaker when I return to Texas in May.  I would love to talk to him about mesothelioma, HITHOC and the new Lung Institute.

In other news – It’s been too much of a good thing for our Thoracic Surgery app.  So many people have downloaded and used the application – that the hosting service will no longer support and host the application for free.  (Unfortunately, due to financial constraints – I am unable to pay for continued support and hosting services).  So thanks to everyone who made this application a success – and my apologies that I am no longer able to maintain it.
