I’ve been a surgeon for 40 years and was a surgical department chairman and residency program director for over 23 of those years. I am board-certified in general surgery and a surgical sub-specialty and have re-certified in both several times. Last year, I retired from clinical practice to devote more time to blogging and tweeting.
I have over 90 publications including peer-reviewed papers, case reports, editorials, letters and book chapters. I have been blogging and tweeting for over 4 years. My blog has had more than 1,100,000 page views. I have over 10,200 Twitter followers.
