Innovation

I heard Dr. Denton Cooley speak today; always an impressive opportunity especially since I'm extremely interested in ped cardiac surgery (I know all about the current troubles of CT surgery).

At the end of the talk he spoke about the future. He thought IRBs, Academic Councils, the FDA, etc. had stymied innovation in surgical techniques. He described his method, concerning the developments he pioneered (by trial and error) in cardiac surgery in the 50s, 60s, and 70s as, "Ready. Fire. Aim."
