Due to today's high-tech instrumentation and advanced technology, procedures such as major abdominal surgery are now replaced with minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques that often reduce pain, accelerate recuperation, and reduce cost without sacrificing good outcomes. Surgical research into disease processes such as immunology and genetics have redefined treatment options specific to individual patients, opening doors to better understanding the etiologies of disease and its progression.
General information on this award / prize
In today's environment of specialization and subspecialization, I find that as a general surgeon, my value to the patient, family physicians, and health plans grows considerably every year. General surgery affords broad, yet often very specialized training in all disciplines of surgery and medicine.
After completing my residency, I became qualified to manage a wide variety of ailments, from gastrointestinal problems to endocrine surgery, from hypertensive crises to rupturing aneurysms. My training enables me to be the best person to manage patients requiring multi-system care such as major trauma, and I am frequently called upon to address complex medical and ethical issues. General surgeons often set the standard of surgical care in a community. We choose the procedures we feel most comfortable with to provide services for our patients.
When patients are referred for advanced medical intervention, general surgeons are commonly the only members of the local medical staff familiar with the procedure performed or management required. And, of course, general surgeons provide life-saving procedures every day, such as appendectomy, splenectomy, or curative cancer surgery.
We see the joy in our patient's face when we tell her that the breast lesion is benign, and suffer and console her when it isn't. No two days are alike. Every day is a different adventure, testing my confidence, skill, and knowledge. General surgeons are valuable not only in the eyes of the patients, but also to the health-care providers. The Education Section is open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm.
