He believes that by listening to patients, he can connect with them to better understand the best way to help them get the outcome they are looking for.

Tell us about a time you improved someones life, how you did it and how it felt.I had a teenage patient that was preparing for a leg amputation. Instead, we were able to restore the form and function of his leg. He later walked into the clinic and was showing off his soccer skills to the staff. Being a part of his care was priceless.
Why did you choose to go into your current profession?I chose to be a plastic surgeon to be able to restore form, function and aesthetics, from head to toe. It is one of the very few fields of medicine where you are able to innovate, push the envelope and markedly improve the quality of life and confidence of your patients.
