Furthest I've traveled from home: Since home is Nigeria, just about everywhere is far from it.
Favorite activity in the Twin Cities: Oh, so many. The Science museum (especially the musical stairs), theaters (Guthrie especially), Durango bakery (NE Minneapolis) enjoying the lakes and trails the city has to offer.
What is your specialty: Colorectal Surgery
Why I chose my specialty: I am a colorectal surgeon. I chose it because it offers a broad variety of cases and still keeps me rather general and operating in the abdomen. I am able to do major abdominal resections, office based procedures and colonoscopies. It's a great and rewarding field.
Why Medicine: I chose medicine because it combined my passion for service with my fascination with anatomy and biology. It's still a great fit and grateful for a profession that continually provides rewards while challenging me with ever changing knowledge.
