A publication for all the members of the Johns Hopkins Medicine family Volume information

Taylor Riall, a GI surgeon who performs approximately 400 operations a year, knows first-hand how sick patients are at Johns Hopkins.

Critical Condition
Cases don’t get much more complex than they are at Johns Hopkins. No one knows that better than the physicians themselves.

What she wouldn’t give for an appendectomy. A simple gallbladder. A routine hernia, for heaven’s sake! Instead, day after day, surgeon Taylor Riall finds herself operating on gravely ill patients with terribly complex conditions.

Riall is assistant chief of service (ACS) on a one-year faculty fellowship in gastrointestinal surgery. Having completed her residency training at Hopkins last year, she is now an instructor on the faculty, with her own patients and her own OR time.

In this one year, Riall is expected to perform approximately 400 operations.
