Life on the Cutting Edge

By Kelley Luckstein

yaszem09It’s hard to look at Dr. Michael Yaszemski’s CV and not think of superlatives: Gifted surgeon. Groundbreaking researcher. Renaissance man. Lifesaver. Miracle worker. Hero.


His family, friends, co-workers and patients might apply any number of these terms to him. But you’ll never hear Yaszemski agreeing with them. At most, he might admit to being one thing – lucky.


“I’ve been very fortunate to have the opportunities I’ve had,” he says.
