My Passion for Healthcare

I have been intensely interested in science and technology since I was very young. I had the opportunity to observe surgery early in my college years. That is when I realized that I wanted to become a surgeon. During Medical School I had to decide what kind of surgery to focus on. I chose General Surgery because of the wide variety of patients and procedures that are involved. I strive to keep abreast of the most up-to-date techniques in surgery, including Robotic Assisted Surgery.
