Introduction As a pediatric surgeon with the US Air Force, I deployed to Iraq in 2005 and 2007. While in Iraq I worked as a trauma surgeon at a combat support hospital in Balad, forth miles north of Baghdad, treating seriously injured US troops, Iraqi soldiers, civilians, and detainees alike. When word got out that there was a pediatric surgeon at the military hospital, many families came to the base seeking care for their children. Along with my dedicated colleagues I was able to provide humanitarian care to needy Iraqi children in between operations for wartime trauma. I received my medical degree from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and trained in surgery at Yale University. As the first Judson Randolph Fellow at the Children’s National Medical Center I received my pediatric surgery specialty training. I have served as the Pediatric Surgery Consultant to the Surgeon General of the Air Force and have completed humanitarian missions to Haiti and Brazil. I recently relocated to Danville, PA with my wife, our three sons, cat, and standard poodle. My family and I enjoy the high-tech outdoor sport of geocaching and are looking for new territory to explore.
