Collegium History

"Team Yellow selected Dr. Michael DeBakey to represent their goals of innovation in medicine. Dr. DeBakey was a cardiovascular surgeon best known for being the first to successfully implant an artificial heart in a human. During his service in World War II, he also designed the Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (MASH) units that gave soldiers a 97% chance of survival when wounded in battle. Furthermore, he was the first to remove a blockage in a carotid artery, designed and used the first artificial grafts for cardiac bypass surgery, and performed the first aorto-coronary artery bypass.”
