"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.

We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly.

We are what we repeatedly do.

Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."

Dr. Padmakumar gave a unique opportunity to be able to perform steps of the operation thereby giving a feel of doing the procedure.
