I'm one of the thoracic surgeons here at Mayo Clinic, Florida. I perform mostly lung surgery, usually with the robots, so minimally invasive. I also do other things in the chest like the thymus gland or infections in the chest. The needs of the patient come first is the mission statement of the whole hospital. And it's, and it's very important because it drives what all that we do and think about each day. There are times when you need multiple different doctors and figure out a problem. And so I think that's where the Mayo Clinic model is at its best.
