Clinical Interest for Patients
I am convinced that pediatric surgery is the most curative of all surgical specialties. Pediatric surgery requires a special temperament, meticulous technique and delicate maneuvers. I love children.
I am personally aware of the suffering of the parents of children born with congenital anomalies therefore I dedicate special time and effort to console and reassure the parents of my patients.
My first son died from a congenital malformation. This represents the most important motivation to practice pediatric surgery.
I have special interest in the study of human nature (socio-biology).
I have travelled to over 50 countries giving lecture and operative demonstrations related to colorectal congenital problems.
I have spoken about Surgical Treatment of Anorectal Malformation and Colorectal congenital disorders. Teaching of pediatric surgery. Motivating the young generation of pediatric surgeons.
