Hi Gang

UTSW has released their article on me, Dr. DiMiao, and DaVinci and have posted the story out on their website.

Here is the link for you to read all about it:


The pic is of Dr.D and Me, and Kim - the #1 DaVinci Team in North Texas :)

The hospital photographer and KTVT Channel 11 news were there in the room with us - we were actually doing my follow-up clinic appointment when they took the pictures.

This is the first story to be released - I'll keep you posted on the paper and the TV news story as it unfolds.

Happy Reading!

    That's a wonderful article! You spoke very well, which is not unexpected at all. And I was not surprised to read that you viewed this procedure as a chance to help others. That's just you, my dear friend. Always about helping other people.

    Thank you for being a pioneer, and thank you for being such an eloquent spokesperson for our group. You did us proud!!!

    And please tell Kim that she is lovely!

    What an excellent article. You actually made news and big news at that. I'm so proud that you were willing to give them that robot to work on you so that others might prosper in health as well. You and Kim need to pat yourselves on your back (including your doctor and surgical team) for performing a remarkable surgery. Awesome

    Great Article!
    And great Pics!! Let Kim know she is a beautiful woman, and amazing to be taking care of you as well through the years! Strong lady! You look great! I like the facial hairs!

    I had no idea you lost a house to a tornado, you poor guys, and going through all this sickness, it's about time you need a break from it. I wish you so much luck for the new year, and I know your back to work already, and hoping you had a chance to recover more before you went back. I hope you're out of pain while at work, and your co-workers treating are treating you well! YOU DA MAN! and my lion!

    Hugsss and Loveee!
