Dr. Elizabeth Revesz has a unique background as an artist and sculptor. She was able to translate her precision, and her ability to see things in three dimensions, into a highly successful career in medicine.
Dr. Rabia Z. Bhatti with the AMITA Resurrection Medical Center has always had a strong interest in the art of surgery. “I actually love the way that patients recover,” she explained. “There’s a gratification behind treating patients and watching them get better.

That’s when I made the switch to breast surgery.”
“From now on, I’m going to use MarginProbe on all of my lumpectomy cases,” the Coordinated Health surgeon shared. “Somehow we have been losing control of how to use new technology to better the lives of patients and their care. That has been our battle and I think it is becoming more pronounced.”
