system. I have in the past used Temuco Also I did minimally invasive vein harvest with the Saph Light system. And am very good in open harvest with bridging if the need arises.
I transitioned to a private contractor working for Mercy Fort Smith. At this time Mercy had lost all of their permanent cardio thoracic surgeons in Fort Smith. I was hired as primary surgical assistant and to train a new assistant. Since that time I have worked with 7 different surgeons on a rotational basis. I have learned that while the end result is the same for all: the technique and what is used to get there is very different for each surgeon. This has made me more adaptable and a better assistant.
