“I always knew I wanted to be a surgeon because of the satisfaction that comes with helping others, and the immediate gratification of seeing the problem go away,” Dr. Kerry-Ann McDonald explained. “I specifically chose breast cancer surgery because it’s a field where there’s strong continuity of care."
Dr. Elizabeth Revesz has a unique background as an artist and sculptor. She was able to translate her precision, and her ability to see things in three dimensions, into a highly successful career in medicine.
Dr. Rabia Z. Bhatti with the AMITA Resurrection Medical Center has always had a strong interest in the art of surgery. “I actually love the way that patients recover,” she explained. “There’s a gratification behind treating patients and watching them get better. And after practicing general surgery for 15 years, I realized I could provide even better care to my patients by focusing, and staying ahead, on one specialty. That’s when I made the switch to breast surgery.”
“From now on, I’m going to use MarginProbe on all of my lumpectomy cases,” the Coordinated Health surgeon shared. “Somehow we have been losing control of how to use new technology to better the lives of patients and their care. That has been our battle and I think it is becoming more pronounced."
"One of the fun things about my job is that NO day is typical," Lisa explained. "I can start the day reviewing pathology reports and analyzing MarginProbe’s contribution to a surgeon’s outcomes in preparation for a data review, and then end the day by updating a training deck for our new hire training class. My position is never boring, and I get to have my fingers in everything!"
With 30 years in practice, Dr. Daniel Howard, a General Surgeon at Mercy Health — Lourdes Hospital, can still define exactly what attracted him to surgery. Dr. Howard’s practice at Mercy Health is the only facility in the state of Kentucky to take advantage of MarginProbe, and it’s leading the state, and the nation, in many other areas of breast cancer treatment.
