I first got interested in medicine because I was a patient as a child. There were doctors who were very helpful and kind, and that promoted my interest in medicine. I often tell patients that we are all patients at one point in our lives.
I think seeing the patient as a whole is my biggest forte – not just seeing the patient as having a hand problem or a reconstructive problem, but looking at the patient as a person and seeing how the problem they’re having is affecting their life.
If you think about it, there’s nothing more human than hands. The way that we interact with our environment is really with hands. That’s precious.
