Documentary: A Day With Robert Cerfolio

Thursday, December 1, 2016

Joel Dunning presents a full-length documentary on renowned general thoracic surgeon, Robert Cerfolio. Dr. Cerfolio is a past president of the Southern Thoracic Surgical Association and Section Chief of Thoracic Surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Alabama, USA. In this film, Mr. Dunning spends a full day with Dr. Cerfolio, observing three major robotic surgical operations and six minor procedures.

Highlights include:

3:15 – Mediastinoscopy
6:45 – VATS sympathectomy
8:23 – Robotic resection of esophageal duplication cyst
14:10 – VATS bullectomy
18:28 – Dr. Cerfolio discusses the day after performing four operations
19:38 – VATS lung biopsy
23:12 – Laser bronchoscopy
27:14 – Bronchoscopy for middle lobe stenosis after right upper lobectomy
28:56 – Robotic thymectomy
33:45 – Dr. Cerfolio's views on large volume surgery
37:15 – Robotic sampling of station 5
41:58 – Final thoughts


I think you are on to something that would be really interesting. To create similar "day in the life of docs" for other experienced surgeons in different practice environments around the world. No private jet needed.
