When you work in the OR, it gets close and personal. Head to head, as it were.
Especially when you’re working with tiny children that Dr. Guleserian and her colleagues treat. Some of them are, literally, less than a day old, needing emergency heart surgery from the very start of their lives. Those hearts aren’t even the size of a ping pong ball. (Your heart, by the way, is about the size of your fist, in case you were wondering.)
