"I think it's very important never to lose sight of the fact that we're changing people's lives every time we step into that operating room," said Dr. Michael Douso. "It's a permanent change to that individual and we're trying very hard to make her life positive and better."

Dr. Douso says the award is just going to fuel his team to continue to strive for greatness.
