Dani Gonzalez

One of the things that drew me to Pediatric Surgery was the breadth of cases that I can see in a single day. I enjoy the variety in both the types of cases and the types of patients that I see, ranging from patients with conditions which can be managed on an outpatient basis, to patients with long-standing conditions which require more long-term follow up, to prenatal consults for expecting parents. Over the course of my career, I have developed an affinity for minimally invasive surgical techniques, including laparoscopy and thoracoscopy.

My Passion for Healthcare

My passion for healthcare stemmed from seeing my grandparents have trouble navigating through complex medical systems as non-English speakers. I recall the difficulty they had understanding medical providers, which led to a poor understanding of their own healthcare needs. As a result, I developed a passion for ensuring that patients and their caregivers are armed with as much knowledge as possible in order to take an active role in their health. In addition to that, I really enjoy getting to know patients and their caregivers to fully understand what their needs are as patients. As a Pediatric Surgeon, I am humbled every day by the opportunity to care for babies and children.
