THE STORY:

THE STORY:

I am running my third Boston Marathon in honor and memory of Michael J. Davidson, a friend and colleague who tragically lost his life in a shooting at the hospital in 2015. As colleagues Mike and I took care of patients together, as a part of an incredible team I took care of Mike on that tragic day. I now look to help continue his legacy by supporting the fellowship in his honor, which will enable a skilled and talented surgeon to pursue a path similar to Mike's.

I hope you can support me with this endeavor either by donating or supporting me with words of encouragement as I train through the winter.

 About the Michael J. Davidson, MD Endovascular Fellowship 

Michael J. Davidson, MD, was the Director of Endovascular Cardiac Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He graduated from Yale University School of Medicine in 1996 and completed his postgraduate training at Duke University Medical Center and BWH. Dr. Davidson took the unusual route of training as both a cardiovascular surgeon and an interventional cardiologist. While at the Brigham, he and his colleagues pushed the adoption of new, less invasive ways to repair damaged aortal valves. These “hybrid” programs used techniques from surgery and interventional cardiology to replace heart valves by inserting them through catheters rather than incisions. Dr. Davidson was part of the remarkable team that performed the hospital’s first tricuspid “valve-in-value” procedure, and he was involved in establishing BWH’s Cardiac Hybrid Operating Room, one of the most advanced operating rooms in the country. 

Dr. Davidson’s colleagues recall him as a “visionary” physician who bridged disciplines to pioneer a new form of surgery, and always took time to understand his patients and do what was best for them. He is remembered as an exceptionally talented surgeon, brilliant thinker, consummate caregiver, and perhaps most of all, as a man who deeply cared for his family, his patients and his colleagues. His legacy of kindness, compassionate care, vision, and humanism lives on in the Brigham community and beyond.
