The International Phaco Training Surgeon

By | December 13, 2011

Dr. Sanjay just got back from a SEE Surgical Expedition.

He flew half-way across the globe from India to Morelia, Mexico for the humanitarian mission.

Morelia is a city in the state of Michoacan in Central Mexico.

The noteworthy point is that he bore all the expenses for the mission.

To his amazement, he was the only phaco surgeon in the hospital.

And by sheer chance, he found himself to be a phaco trainer for other surgeons over there.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta leaves the other surgeon spell-bounded with his phaco speed.
