Professor Heald teaches us the importance of learning from our mistakes and from other people so as not to commit them again, he emphasizes lessons to learn where he tells us not only about the challenges of pelvic, oncological surgery, and possible mistakes to be made. We advise you to feel free to say what we think in the surgery room, you can help in difficult situations and proper planning prior to all surgeries. Beautiful lesson of the day: to fail to prepare is to prepare to fail. In this outstanding didactic lecture, Professor Heald explains part of his great experience and the experiences of a career of more than 50 years, truly amazing! and life lessons he now shares with us, where he shows a clear example that “we must be our own sternest critics” and have the “courage to fail”. in conclusion: beware of Panic Factor, and you can always call a friend, talk to patients, forget your own pride, learn to apologize. Remember: there are things under your control and others that are not! Thank you Professor Heald for these great teachings.
