Dr. Wang expresses his motivation to care for patients with spinal injuries.
Well, I find it fascinating. It’s a very technically demanding area of surgery. I think all surgeons go into surgery because they like to use their hands and they like the technical aspects of it. In particular, spine surgery requires a lot of expertise. It’s very delicate and I find it very challenging.
