I have a passion for effective surgery. It is impossible to be a master of every type of operation, so surgical mastery is about familiarity and judgment within specialized procedures. You learn the problems that can occur during a particular procedure or with a particular condition, and you learn how to predict and prevent these outcomes. This can only occur with experience. Expertise is not a static condition, but one that evolves with experience.
This is why I am constantly pushing the envelope with surgical research and equipment design in the field of liposuction.
