I am from Nepal and a medical doctor specialized in neurosurgery. I have been practicing neurosurgery for last more than 15 years. My favorite thing about my job is the immense pleasure that I get after accomplishing the surgery and helping my patients go back home. The outcome of the surgery may not always be a pleasant one though. Moreover, I believe neurosurgery is one of the most fascinating fields in medicine.
Since my family members are living in USA I wished to work in this land. Finally, I joined UI because it gave me the opportunity to flourish myself in the field of neurosurgery and thus to contribute further to human beings and our society. UI hospitals and clinics is one of the best medical centers in the country and I found myself proud and lucky to be a part of it. Iowa city is a nice, small and peaceful city to live in. I love Iowa city.
I like working with patients and dealing with their pains. As a human being, I may not be able to give them the best health that they deserve but I can give them a moment which may take their pain away at least for that moment.
Becoming a medical doctor and serving people was not my dream till I was in early high school years. While in the second half of high school life, suddenly I started thinking about becoming a medical doctor and a surgeon in future. My scores in high school were good enough to get admission in a medical school and finally, my dream came true and I started practicing neurosurgery. My patients and their sweet smile inspire me every day to do better next day.
