What is surgery like?

Asked Richfield, Minnesota

I think I want to be a surgeon and I wanted to know what performing surgery is like. Is it fun? Hard? As rewarding as it seems? #surgery #surgeon #general-surgery #doctors #cardiac-surgeon #plastic-surgeon #spine-surgery #oral-surgery

Surgery is a demanding but fun job. It needs a lot of focus, both for the training, and after, when performing it. But there's immediate gratification, where you can save someone's life or improve their quality of life. I love both the technical aspect of surgery, as well as the judgement required, of what surgery to do, and when, and sometimes when doing nothing is the right thing. There are frustrations with bureaucracy, but as a plastic surgeon, there's less of that to deal with. #surgery #plastic-surgery #plastic-surgeon
