Our Mission

“Surgery is not only a matter of operating skillfully.  It must engage in its service qualities of mind and heart that raise it to the highest level of human endeavor.  A patient can offer you no higher tribute than to entrust you with his life and health and by implication with the happiness of all of his family. To be worthy of this trust, we must submit for a lifetime to the constant discipline of universal effort in the search of knowledge and most reverent devotion to every detail in every operation we perform.” – Sir Berkeley Moyinhan

“We restore what God has given, but fate has taken away.  Not so much to please the eye of the beholder as to buoy up the spirit of the afflicted.” – Gaspare Tagliacozzi (1560)
