A Day in the Life of a Cardiac Surgeon

January 28th, 2015

St. Mary’s Regional Cardiac Care Centre recently welcomed a crew from CTV Kitchener for a series called “On the Job”. News anchor Meghan Furman spent the day with Dr. Gary Salasidis, a Cardiovascular Surgeon at St. Mary’s, for a glimpse into his role and the teamwork that goes into heart surgery. Meghan and cameraman Kevin Doerr, stepped inside the operating room to watch patient Bradley Knight, of Kitchener, undergo heart valve replacement surgery.
