The Operating Room is a Theater
Anything can happen
And then, it’s a matter of training
Someone told me long ago:
Six Inches of Cold Steel
Is Man’s Best Friend
Sometimes it goes like the movie in your head
Sometimes it’s like you walk out of the room years older than when you walked in.
One thing is certain: There will be blood.
I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:
I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.
I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.
I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.

From a Surgeon’s Point Of View
Welcome to my personal site. There is no affiliation between this website and my regular day job. All pictures on the website, unless otherwise stated, have been purchased from stock photography sources such as fotolia.com, and are chosen for dramatic effect primarily. There are no images of patients that I have personally treated. The primary goal, for me, is the dissemination of information to my patients, and any others so interested. A secondary goal is that as many who know me know, I enjoy exercising my freedom of expression creatively and otherwise.
This video in the second in a four part series. My goal is to have a few short videos rather than one long one. This way, the user will be able to select what is of most interest. They do not need to be watched in a specific order although they are presented in a logical order. The remaining videos are available on the GERD page that is on the menu.
