A great experience for Mr Obama and the Congress

by Marcos Val?rio Mannarino Loures Wednesday, Jul. 13, 2011 at 9:54 AM

A successful example of SUS

During this next week I passed by a unique experience, to undergo surgery for a medium to large - placement of bypass grafts, necessary for revascularization of myocardium exposed to diabetes, smoking, and to emotions and work for 30 years dominated my daily life.

After a heart attack two years ago developed with a slow and progressive worsening I underwent a coronary angiography in the early months of this year that showed severe damage in all coronary arteries. Result - bypass.

Inhabiting a small town in the state of Espirito Santo - Alegre, with its thirty thousand inhabitants was referred to the nearest city-reference - Itapemirim, better known as the birthplace of the mega-star in Latin music - Roberto Carlos, specifically the Evangelical Hospital where I was subjected to a series of tests and had surgery scheduled for the Unified Health System (SUS) on 05/07/2011.

SUS is a program of universal health theoretically giving the same rights and treatment conditions for all citizens.

Outcome of the struggle of a generation immediately after dictatorship and very recent implementation in the country, on the principle of universal service

Well, when I refer to the Cardiac Surgery Team and the Evangelical Hospital Hemodinâminca captained by Dr Luis Bento had one of the most pleasant surprises at the end of the walk this old dreamer.

Use the name of any professional would be unfair to the rest, including the basic areas: cleaning, cooking, etc..

The treatment received by me and by users of the system was, and equal, in a rare performance on a fundamental issue and to improve or cure the patient, Love and Respect.

Thank everyone is the minimum that I feel obliged to do. In fact it would be very good President Obama bring to the Evangelical Hospital of Cachoeiro Itapemirim U.S. Congressmen opposed to universal health care, to meet and eat a corn cake with coffee with the exceptional Dr. Luis Bento, and maybe even a show packed with Roberto Carlos, learning "how much love is contagious."
