Dedicated Surgeon Treks Three Hours During Massive Snowstorm To Operate On Patient

Dedicated Surgeon Treks Three Hours During Massive Snowstorm To Operate On Patient
Updated 3 months ago

With everything covered in snow and transportation shut down, Scotland is at a virtual standstill following recent winter storms. One Glasgow surgeon, however, didn't let that stop her as she geared up and walked for three hours in freezing temperatures to perform a surgery scheduled for that day. The dedicated doctor preferred to remain anonymous, not wanting praise for doing her job, but a colleague believe she deserved recognition for her extraordinary efforts.

Dr. Andy Renwick told her story to BBC Radio Scotland:

She walked from Anniesland to Paisley – it took her two hours and 50  minutes. I saw her come in, she had snow goggles on, Gortexed up, top  and bottom, snow shoes and walking poles. ... She is operating today on someone who has bowel cancer, she knew that  had to be done and so she has made extra effort to get in here to make  sure that was actually delivered.

Renwick wasn't the only one who thought the unnamed doctor deserved praise for her dedication.  

Similar stories have been popping up all across UK during the storm.

It's the type of dedication that deserves to be honored:
