As a general surgeon, I was trained to perform carotid endarterectomies, and I had the good fortune to assist an excellent vascular surgeon on several hundred such cases. In those capacities, I must say that Dr. Galvin’s column was both accurate and extremely educational. However, there was one correction/typo. HDL cholesterol was defined as “bad cholesterol,” but it is the LDL cholesterol that’s “bad,” while the HDL cholesterol is “good.”
If this column in general is indicative of the type way in which Dr. Galvin practices, then I must say that I am proud to have him as a colleague.
