I often remind my patients that even though I am a surgeon, I am also a patient. I understand full well when any patient is apprehensive about a needed surgery because I as a patient would (and have) felt the same way. My care philosophy is based on the simple idea that the care I offer my patient is the same I would want offered to my family member or to myself. In general, the smaller the operation that can be used to solve the problem, the better.
