Best Neurosurgeon in the World!…my Bob!!
I always thought Bob was the best neurosurgeon there is or ever was…and it was not just because I am married to him (for 35 years now). It is not just because he trained at Harvard (the best training program in the world!) back in the days when the resident basically lived at the hospital. (They have since outlawed the schedule under which he trained.) We once calculated that for his “easy” week he spent 110 hours at the hospital and his hard week (we alternated between easy week, and hard week) he spent 140 hours at the hospital. When our oldest daughter, Jennifer, was about three years old, we pulled up to the hospital (in our one and only car) to drop Bob off where he would spend the next three days and Jennifer said, “Here’s daddy’s house.” At the time I wasn’t sure whether I would laugh or cry…we sacrificed much, he worked so, so hard for seven years (after medical school) in a grueling residency. He has spent the last 30 years of his practice trying to do the absolute best he could for each and every patient. I have seen him work seemingly miraculous surgeries…surgeries that no one else would do. I think he has a gift. But he has also worked very hard, and takes that “gift” very seriously and gives his life to do his best in each surgery. What more could one want as a patient?
Any way I am proud to announce that I am not the only one that thought Bob was the best. He was recently named by U.S. News and World report as one of the Best Neurosurgeons in the country…so I am not alone. There are a lot of doctors that agree with me.
