"When I am planning surgery, whether it's for someone with a complex hernia, or a liver tumor or pancreatic cancer, my ultimate goal is to treat the underlying problem as effectively as possible. But because successful surgery means many more years of active life for that patient, it is also extremely important to make sure their functional and cosmetic outcomes are as good as possible. Maximising quality of life is as necessary as saving life."
