    What inspires me to work every day is to see the results in the change of life that patients have after surgery. Some of my patients tell me incredible stories about things that happen after surgery- like wearing their first dress or putting on their first heels. Basically, I do it for the health of the patient and that is why I perform surgery. -Dr. Pompa Gonzalez
