Dr. Takita trained me in thoracic surgery. He is a great teacher and the year I spent with him at Roswell Park Cancer Institute was the most exciting in my career. I thought of him when I saw this man in followup. He came to me 5 years ago after a gunshot wound to the chest. He had an empyema and was dying. I performed a modified Eloesser flap for darinage and he recovered. The wound has now closed ny itself and he is very happy. Thanks Dr. Takita, for training me so well!
