Dr. Braga-Mele discusses her passionate commitment to motherhood, teaching the next generation of surgeons, clinical care of her patients, and athletics. Aside from being a world-renown surgeon, Dr. Braga-Mele has been an accomplished & nationally known bodybuilder. Bodybuilding has proven to improve her spiritual zen, physical endurance, and mental strength for Dr. Braga-Mele, and this has directly improved her skills as a surgeon in the OR. Dr. Braga-Mele will showcase a quicksand moment where a sudden burst of positive pressure at the wrong time led to one of the most common complications of operating on a dense white cataract.
