Care Philosophy

I thought I would be a professional musician, but I changed my mind one month before college started. One of the three best decisions I have made. Training as an adult surgeon allowed me to have contact with children, and I fell in love with pediatric surgery (my second really good decision).Read more

      Dr. Tuggle's Care Philosophy

      I thought I would be a professional musician, but I changed my mind one month before college started. One of the three best decisions I have made. Training as an adult surgeon allowed me to have contact with children, and I fell in love with pediatric surgery (my second really good decision).

      Dr. Tuggle says...

      I love all aspects of pediatric surgery, but I fell into my clinical focus by accident. When I started pediatric surgery, no one else really was interested in taking care of injured children, so I made it my interest. It gave me a great opportunity to do research and teach young doctors. Five of the 20 pediatric surgeons I trained now are trauma directors at their own hospitals.
