When asked why he chose the field of plastic surgery, Dr. Sando replied” As a surgeon, I wanted to be involved in rebuilding and restoring. Planning a variety of surgeries from head to toe, applying geometric principles, observing the miracles of wound healing, communicating with patients on several levels, and serving all ages are as satisfying as I could ever dream, just as exciting now to me as when I started 25 years ago.’
