When (your age) did you first realize you wanted to enter the health & medical field? And did you experience anything in particular to motivate you to achieve this prestigious goal?
I started to think about becoming a doctor when I was about 12 years old, when I accompanied my father on a national conference on teaching international orthopedic surgeons how to perform arthroscopic knee surgery in Bucharest, Romania. Things have come a long way since then and I am very fortunate to have been able to follow in my father's footsteps and hopefully make similar change in the field of medicine
Can you tell us in your own words what you consider a perfect outcome of a surgical procedure?
A perfect outcome is found when one performs the correct surgical procedure for the appropriate indications and is able to utilize minimally invasive techniques to allow for less pain and quicker recovery. We aspire to get patients back on their feet to live a healthy active lifestyle without joint pain.
What is your favorite procedure to perform and why?
Arthroscopic surgery of all kinds, whether it be in the shoulder, knee, ankle, or wrist.
In a perfect world, when would you like to retire, where would you go and what would you do?
I can't see the future, but I would like to retire a few years early and devote some of my time to help the underserved regions of the world learn and develop the newest orthopaedic advances and surgical techniques. It will be my opportunity to give back to the community at large
