Michael E. DeBakey, MD: Father of Modern Cardiovascular Surgery—Correction

JAMA. 2005;293(14):1728. doi:10.1001/jama.293.14.1728-a

Incorrect Information: In the Medical News & Perspectives article “Michael E. DeBakey, MD: Father of Modern Cardiovascular Surgery” published in the February 23, 2005, issue of JAMA (2005;293:913-918), President John F. Kennedy was erroneously described as one of the world leaders who were treated by DeBakey. DeBakey worked with Kennedy on medical legislation for Medicare.
