Red face It's the Surgeon Stupid!

Reminiscent of that famous Bill Clinton campaign slogan: "it's the economy stupid".

It seems that no matter what the aspect of surgery the single most important qualitative variable is the: THE DOCTOR!!!! I think we in this country tend to forget this being subjected to wholesale 15 minute slivers of "medicine". We are taught little commonsense, how much do kids get commonsense from a 5-10 hr a day diet of GrimTime TeeVee? And how much commonsense have you gotten from your doc lately? So mostly the bone wax (does Zeegers use bee's wax & paraffin?) is a tempest in a candlestick holder. And so it goes.

Mark: as usual, thanks for the info..

Good luck!
