I think it would be more dangerous for the doc to go through those long procedures (>4h) without a break. I would be all for my doc stopping for a bite, so long as the pt was stable.,

Orthopaedic surgeons have to be as strong as an ox. But they're usually at least twice as smart!

And, as someone pointed out on the Today show this morning, not only did the doc go AWOL, but he was clearly completely distracted and concentrating more on his finances than on his patient even when he WAS physically present in the OR.

So it would be safe to say that he WASN'T laughing all the way to the bank!
