On Patients
"My goals are to perform the surgery as expertly as possible and to make the patient feel as confident and at ease as possible. Striving toward technical perfection and involving the patient as an enthusiastic part of the team intellectually is what makes surgery so rewarding as a profession."

On Specialty
"Surgery is not always the best solution to a health problem, but when it is, it is often curative, and often dramatically so."
