Don't forget to watch Boston Med tonight, to see Boston Children's Hospital's Francis Fynn-Thompson, MD, perform a life saving heart transplant on his teenage patient Sara Dumas.

In the following video Fynn-Thompson shares his thoughts on what it was like to work as a surgeon under the close scrutiny of ABC's cameras.



Make sure you check in with us tomorrow, because Sara Dumas will share her story in an exclusive post for Thrive. The 18-year old heart transplant recipient will comment not only on her condition and Children's experience, but also what it was like to undergo such a major medical procedure and lengthy hospital stay with camera crews capturing it all.

As always, check out thesmallandmighty.org, for exclusive, in depth and behind-the-scenes material as it relates to Children's participation in Boston Med.
