Many of our research publications (1,000 a year!) are on new pharmaceuticals, new devices or reviews methods of delivering care to help further the health of our community. It’s always a pleasure when I get to hear about something a little different from our research teams.
Richard F. Heitmiller, MD, Chief of Surgery, Program Director of General Surgery and Surgical Residency Program Director at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, was recently published in Annals of Surgery, with a biographical article on William Francis Rienhoff, Jr., MD. William Francis Rienhoff Jr. was a skilled and innovative surgeon whose career spanned over 4 decades of patient care, clinical investigative research, and surgical education. His professional life coincided with the early development of general and thoracic surgery to which he contributed.
Congratulations to Dr. Heitmiller on this publication! You can view the article here.
