INTERESTS

I am crazy for sport, and love to try new areas of it all the time. Especially I am keen for scuba diving, bicycle riding (road and mountain bikes), and running. Before medical school I had the chance to take a part in establishing a fitness club in Israel, including personal training and spinning instructor and I had the chance to be part of the management.

I am very devoted to my military service as part of the special rescue team, and find great joy and satisfaction in it. It gives me the chance to practice my skills and reasoning in times of critical need and while confronting a large variety of trauma, and I feel it makes me a better doctor and a better man.

Above all I feel I am so lucky to have one of my greatest interests in my everyday work as a surgeon.
