I am a trauma surgeon at Memorial Healthcare System. I perform life-saving and diagnostic procedures including chest and abdominal explorations on patients who were injured in a car accident, fall or some other form of trauma.
By the end of my first day working in a trauma rotation during my medical training, I knew I was destined to be a trauma surgeon. When people come into the hospital with a trauma, they are having one of the worst days of their life. I enjoy getting to help them through a difficult time and perform procedures that will immediately provide relief and jumpstart their road to recovery.
My greatest joy is when I see a former patient who is completely healed and back to living their life as they did pre-accident or injury. I have run into a few former patients around town and always feel so much pride knowing that I played a role in helping them heal.
Aside from providing patient care in a hospital setting, I also enjoy traveling to other countries to provide medical assistance during a time of crisis. I hope to continue to take these trips, offering my medical expertise to helping others in need.
