Dr. David Joyce and his father Dr. Lyle Joyce are one of the very few father/son surgical teams in the field of cardiology. Both practice in the division cardiothoracic surgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin and Froedtert Hospital. David talks with his dad about what it was like seeing three of his four children pursue careers in medicine, including David, who took on the ambitious and work-intensive goal of becoming a cardiothoracic surgeon. The two share their thoughts on what it's like to be a father/son surgical team. Lyle Joyce also shares his experiences of being a cardiothoracic surgeon, including being a member of the surgical team that implanted the first total artificial heart in a human.
