Tell us about yourself

 John C. Sakaris RN CNOR CMLSO – I am currently the Laser Coordinator for Perioperative Services at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas. I received my Associate of Applied Science Degree in 1967 and my Associate Degree in Nursing in 1976. I have been a CNOR for 25 plus years, and CMLSO since 2008.

 How did you become LSO?

I started working with lasers in the late 1970’s, specifically the CO2. At my previous position with the Memorial Hermann Hospital System, I was asked to be the MLSO. I agreed to take the position and was sent to a MLSO training course.

Do you like being the LSO?

I enjoy being the MLSO; I welcome any challenges and enjoy facing and resolving them.

Has becoming certified helped you in your career?

Being certified has given me a lot more credibility and the ability to network with other people in our field of Laser Safety.
