Since deciding that I would be a surgeon well before medical school I’ve always thought that the ideal surgery practice would be one full-time in the operating room without distractions, with happy patients, and with instant gratification from the cases performed. Having worked in private, corporate, federal and academic practices I can say that being a full-time surgeon at Sono Bello for the last 6 years is as close to that ideal as I’ve ever come.
The opportunity to pursue the level of expertise available only in a high-volume focused practice is matched by the lack of distraction of marketing and the steady stream of pre-qualified patients quite divergent in body type, age, and needs.
I’ve never been good at controlling my work/home life balance. Sono Bello gives me a challenging day in the operating room followed by a richer more distraction free life outside the center.
