Most days, Dr. Joseph Sucher (MD, FACS) is a general surgeon and surgical critical care specialist on staff at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas. He also serves as an assistant professor of surgery with Weill Cornell Medical College.  However, these are not most days.  Today he is currently serving the nation as a member of the Army’s 909th Forward Surgical Team (FST) overseas in Afghanistan.

Dr. Sucher is chronicling his experiences in Afghanistan on his blog – FaST Surgeon (in Afghanistan).  It’s an eye-opening look into the daily life and obstacles that FSTs face in active war zones and in treating our fighting men and women.  Dr. Sucher discusses both the medical side of his care as well as the very human side of being in the center of this maelstrom.

mTuitive has spoken with Dr. Sucher a couple of times about working together on various surgical solutions.  We can’t wait for him to get back so we can put him to work on the OpNote as soon as possible.  We’re kidding, of course (mostly).

But we do want Dr. Joe to know that he’s in our thoughts and prayers.  We ask that all of you please check out his blog, follow his story and join us in wishing for a quick and safe return home for him and all of those soldiers and surgeons working so far from home.
