As a young surgeon, Dr. Weiss spent years training in emergency trauma care at a large medical center whose patient population was mostly poor, homeless and disenfranchised. Years of private practice took him away from that world. Working in Haiti brought Dr. Weiss back to the roots of what he does, and why he does it.

For the past several years, Dr. Weiss has gone to Vietnam to share Western surgical techniques with some of the warmest, most wonderful people he's had the privilege to know.
