Mark A. Talamini, MD, MBA Keywords: John Cameron, laparoscopic surgery, mentorship, minimally Karl told me he was indeed operating upon the patient, planned to do invasive surgery an Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio Pancreatography stone extrac- tion, and anticipated the patient speaking with the local news crews (Ann Surg 2018;267:S20–S21) shortly thereafter to relate the miracle of such extensive surgery without a large incision and extended hospitalization. And indeed, e think first and foremost of Dr John Cameron as a master that is just what happened. When I related this to Dr Cameron, he W pancreatic cancer surgeon, and indeed, that he is. His devel- said, ‘‘we’re going to do laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and we’re opment of a pancreatic cancer center in what the businessmen refer to going to do it quickly.’’ I soon found myself in Dr Cameron’s office as a ‘‘focused factory’’ model is legendary and has been transforma- with Charles Yeo, Keith Lillemoe, Tom Gadacz, and Henry Pitt, tional. But when I first met and worked with Dr Cameron, his discussing how we would develop the program expediously at Johns interests and investigations were broad. In 1978, I began work in Hopkins.
