Surgical Sailing

Working in an Operating Room is full of tension, excitement and success. “If you could see surgeons at work, you would be awed,” said Terry Moore of Onley, Virginia, while sailing on the York River. “One man came in recently who was bleeding out (internally) and needed surgery immediately. The plan was to transport him to a larger hospital, but the doctor said that if they moved him he wouldn’t make it. Our surgeons went to work on him and cut him wide open to repair the bleeding. They saved him. This was open surgery, not laparoscopic since they didn’t have time for that.” Terry was sailing for the first time on a big boat, and she took to it behind the wheel with surgical precision.
