From Dr. Curd
“As a kid, I was fascinated by medicine. A family friend was an OR nurse and suggested I volunteer at my local hospital. I thought I wanted to become an emergency room doctor, but in medical school I found that I really enjoyed orthopedics and surgery the most. I like helping fix people from the start of their treatment to their final recovery.”
