How many open heart surgeries have you performed maximum in a day??

A. I have physically performed four (4) open heart surgeries in a single day. I may be able to do five or six open heart surgeries per day but it would be tiring
and it would be unfair to the patients as my mental and physical abilities would not be optimum.One can perform even 15 to 20 surgeries in a day if one has a
big team of doctors and technicians who can do part of the operation and then finish the surgery later.My mentor, Dr Denton Cooley used to perform about 30 to 42
cardiac operations per day in his heydays(peak) @ Texas heart Institute.
