Weight Loss Surgery with Dr. Soosaar In eighth grade there was a “what do you want to be when you grow up,” and my father brought me surgical instruments from the operating room. I made several posters with the instruments attached and had him explain to me what all the instruments were. From that very moment, I was hooked at being able to remove or fix something for someone.
