It was a very quick and small case, but for the first time today, I did an entire surgery, skin to skin, without anyone telling me the steps. I actually felt like I knew what I was doing. And it was the best feeling ever.

The opportunity to influence others behind you is what continues to drive me...especially when “they” say you cannot do it!!

Surgical training has been one of the most arduous decisions of my life. But, hands down, it is absolutely the most rewarding. More must be done to get underrepresented groups (women, POC) to enter the field. The importance of mentorship cannot be overstated.

Agree, I'm really trying to change the messaging from "this is so hard" to "this is hard but possible." And of course highlighting the satisfaction and meaningfulness of a career in surgery is key, too.

Amazing Grand Rounds this week with our own Dr. Arika Hoffman. Two real life examples of fellowship Rec letters. One for a female, one for a male. The man sounds like a super hero. Look at the difference. The female sounds like a preschool teacher.

💯 yes. One of my colleagues had to stop using the squeeze-to-seal Ligasure because she was developing tendonitis. Even with my 6.5 gloves, and ergonomics in the OR are so important for a long career in surgery.

Understanding is the first step in combatting them. We need to increase for all underrepresented groups. Making the science public will help improve .

Performed an excision & debridement w/ autografting on this little dude and his human. Both are recovering well. Just another day in OR 5.

It hasn't happened since 🤗. It did catch me by surprise because I've been at my hospital for over a decade and know most of the security staff. I think maybe he was new? But the assumption that a woman couldn't be a surgeon needed to be challenged anyway.

Conversation over dinner with my 10 year old: “mom, I want to help people, I want to do something that matters, I want to leave my mark in this world “. And my heart completely melted 💕

YES. Oh yes. More examples of indirect . Equality of instrumentation for everyone does *not* lead to equitable outcomes.

I admit I’ve felt clumsy (rarely but happens) thought it was the instruments, then “no way, it must be that I lack skill” Then heaven sends this jewel ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
