We hope you enjoy this small tribute to the endocrine surgery legends that walk among us. This section offers you an opportunity to listen in on candid and relaxed conversations with some of the giants in our field. They tell us of their training, their mentors, their practice, and the fun they have had as surgeons over the last 20 to 30 to 40 years or more. They let us know what things were like at the first AAES meeting; they tell humorous tales of colleagues and of themselves. Our endocrine surgery legends offer us a glimpse of what it has been like to be leaders in a fledgling field in the 1970s and 1980s and how the specialty has transformed and how training has been altered. They comment on what our endocrine fellows should know as they embark on a fantastic career. Enjoy!
