Busy day yesterday – spent the morning shift with Jose Luis Barron over at Mexicali General.. Then raced over to Hospital de la Familia for a couple of general and bariatric cases.
The first case was with the ever charming Drs. Horatio Ham, and Rafael Abril (who we’ve talked about before.) with the always competent Dr. Campa as the anesthesiologist. (Seriously – Dr. Campa always does an excellent job.)
Then as we prepared to enter the second case – the director of the hospital asked if I would like to meet Dr. Marco Sarinana G. and his partner, Dr. Joel Ramos.. well, of course.. (Dr. Sarinana’s name has a tilde over the first n – but try coaxing that out this antique keyboard..)
So off to the operating room with these three fellows. (This isn’t my usual protocol for interviewing surgeons, etc. but sometimes it works out this way.) Their practice is called Mexicali Obesity Solutions.
Dr. Alejandro Ballesteros was the anesthesiologist for the case – and everything proceeded nicely.
After that – it was evening, and time to write everything down!
Today should be another great day – heading to IMSS with Dr. Gabriel Ramos for a big case..
