I chose pediatric surgery because I love the fact there’s such potential. You really have the chance to impact the youngest person’s life that you can think of in a positive way and make it so they can grow up to be a happy, healthy adult.
I want to make sure that the children understand what’s happening to them, because I think that’s an important part of this whole process, as well as the parents understanding what’s happening. And I think that’s important to build a rapport and build a relationship with the family, because as a surgeon, we are very intimately involved in their lives for a short period of time. As a mom myself, I understand how the parents feel. They’re entrusting someone with their most precious possession, which is their children. And so I really value that relationship, and it’s one of the most rewarding relationships that we can have as a physician.
