Dr. Macksoud specializes in hand surgery, shoulder and elbow surgery.
He likens hand surgery to a scene in the blockbuster movie "Terminator." He said he's able to open a patient's skin, see all the machinery beneath and tweak what needs fixing. It's instant gratification for Dr. Macksoud and his patients.
"What matters is if patients trust you, you paint an accurate picture of what results can be expected and if the results they achieve are what they expected."
And why orthopaedics? Dr. Macksoud says it's a lot like falling in love. Find out how he found his perfect mate in medicine.
