Vietnamese Star Athlete Benefits From Sports Hernia Surgery

I was invited to Vietnam in early June by the National Soccer Team to care for their star athlete Nguyen Van Len. He needed surgery but could not get a visa to the United States. The operation was performed on June 10, 2010. He has done very well and is already back in rehab and starting to play soccer.

After surgery, there was a news conference at which all the major Vietnamese television stations were present. The operation itself was televised on the nightly news.

While in Vietnam I also operated on six other Vietnamese athletes, including Nguyen Thi Nu their star 400m sprinter. The local newspaper called me a neurosurgeon (I am a general surgeon); I need to work on my Vietnamese. I have been invited to return to Vietnam in August.

I look forward to caring for more of the Vietnamese athletes. And to share my surgical knowledge.
