Why did you choose burn surgery?
I chose to work in burn surgery due to the unique nature of the medical condition patients present with and the ability to be challenged. No day is ever the same. It has also offered me the ability to form a relationship with the patients I treat and their families that is unlike any other.
What is your philosophy of care or approach to patient care?
While there is a sense of predictability and pattern to medicine, all patients and their bodies are different. I think it is important to treat the patient as a whole person and not just their medical condition they are presenting with. With burns specifically it is essential to the healing process to educate and offer holistic therapies to the patient.
