My Mantra

I strive to grow as a surgeon as well as a person every day. Alongside my focused scientific approach, I also try to maintain a holistic attitude while treating my patients. I believe empathy and kindness can make a whole lot of difference. My driving forces are the grateful faces of my patients and a yearning to learn more.
