My Passion for Healthcare
I thought I would be a professional musician, but I changed my mind one month before college started. One of the three best decisions I have made. Training as an adult surgeon allowed me to have contact with children, and I fell in love with pediatric surgery (another really good decision). My best decision was proposing to my wife.
My Clinical Focus
I love all aspects of pediatric surgery, but I fell into my clinical focus by accident. When I started pediatric surgery, few pediatric surgeons were really was interested in taking care of injured children, so I made it my interest. It gave me a great opportunity to do research and teach young doctors. Five of the 20 pediatric surgeons I trained now are trauma directors at their own hospitals.
