BIG EGOS--Beware the humble surgeon. You don't want a hand-wringing Oprah weeping over your open chest cavity, but a person confident and sure of his skills. At least, that's what I'd want.

I wasn't talking about capability. I was talking about ego getting in the way of healing. Man's greatest fault is the inability to admit he may just be wrong.

BIG EGOS--Beware the humble surgeon.

After 20 + years in the medical profession I can attest that 'the humble surgeon' is a critter that just does not exist! LOL!

Just the thought of 'a humble surgeon' will have me chuckling for the remainder of the afternoon. In fact my sides are already aching--perhaps I should find 'a humble surgeon' to diagnose my problem.
