Enova's Anniversary Top 10 List
Continuing to do What She Loves, Plastic Surgeon Jessica Collins, MD, Chooses Enova LED Headlight for Her Own PracticeIn August 2013, when Shedding Light first interviewedDr. Jessica Collins, she was in a Fellowship in Pediatric Craniofacial Surgery with the University of California in San Diego and she had recently donated her time and skill with Operation Smile in Brazil. That was the first time Dr. Collins had used Enova’s Iris S-100 through the Enova Mission Program.
She continues to donate her time and skill today, as she now volunteers with Fresh Start Surgical Giftsevery sixth weekend in the San Diego area. Fresh Start is a nonprofit focused on helping children with deformities through reconstructive surgery. The organization has given over 6,800 children fresh starts and provided over $29 million in free medical services since it started in 1991.
LED Surgical Headlights are Standard in Emergency Rooms
Throughout Enova’s 1oth Anniversary Year, Shedding Light is connecting with surgeons and physicians who were featured over the past three years in the online newsletter. This month we caught up with Dr. David M. Larson, an emergency physician who is Medical Director of the Ridgeview Emergency Departments at the Ridgeview Medical Center in Waconia and at Two Twelve Medical Center in Chaska, both located in Minnesota.
Dr. Larson was one of the first users of Enova’s first headlight, the Halo 5000 when it came out in 2005. At the time he was featured in Shedding Light, he and his staff were using Enova’s Iris S-100 surgical headlight in addition to the Halo 5000. While the Halo still functions, Dr. Larson chose to upgrade to one of Enova’s newest headlights, the Cyclops XLT-125 to supplement the S-100 in the emergency room.
