Here is another surgical image that I took in Paris, France. I studied photography at the Speos Paris Photographic Institute (Which I’ll tell you more about in a later blog). My background is in the medical industry so when I took a year off to “Eat, Pray, Love” my experience involved moving to Paris and photography. (Among other things – wine, cafe crèmes, champagne, wonderful food, fabulous people, were some of the other things.) While I was there, I met many of my surgeon contacts / friends and had access into the operating rooms. The image in this photo was taken on a quadruple by-pass. I was in the OR for almost 7 hours which was only a portion of the surgery. I was so amazed at the intensity of the OR team over that much time. Such an amazing team. Again, I am honored to have the Le Point.fr chose this photo for their story. Thank you!
PS: For the translation of La greffe pour lutter contre le déficit de la Sécu I believe it means The transplant to fight against the deficit of the Sécu (Stéphane, I hope I got that right! I’m trying to brush up on my French for my next trip to Europe.)
Would you like a print? Please click on “Contact”. My photography is printed on aluminum. Utilizing an advanced process which infuses dyes directly into the metal, the colors and saturation are really amazing. In addition, your print will be displayed using mount blocks which float the image ½ inch off the wall.

I rarely modify any of my surgery images but this one just seemed like fun. Shot in Frankfurt Germany, this was a cardiovascular operation performed using a robot. This image highlights a bit of the prep before the case. You can’t see the robot in this image but if you click to follow, you’ll be one of the first to travel behind closed doors and see the surgical robot in action!
