What inspired you to start this business? How did you get started?

All my life I have always wanted to be a doctor helping people. After getting involved in prostrate treatments, I became obsessed with advancements in robotic surgery.

Does the business bring you Money?

I help detect and treat people who suffer from prostate cancer. I have invented a robotic method which is unique and less invasive compared to traditional surgical procedures. The method helps to keep people free of cancer.

Did it take long for you to become profitable?

After performing conventional prostrate surgeries for long, I came to learn that doctors from France were using the laparoscopic method and I decided to join them and learn about robotic surgery. And since there was no one else doing that in the US, I took that advantage and my career exploded.

How did you get your first patient?

After introducing my “SMART” surgical techniques most men became interested.

What do you think the future holds for your business? What excites you most?

I hope to offer men with a comprehensive treatment center for their general health. I am excited that we are in an era of technological advancements in the health sector.

Do you have a personal habit which increases your productivity?

My job can be stressing considering that I always have patients who are dependent upon me. Nonetheless, my family keeps me rejuvenated. It’s the best thing I ever had.
