Dr. Dan Eun's journey from the mission field to the surgical field
Dr. Daniel Eun is the chief of Temple University Hospital's Robotic Surgery program and directs its Minimally Invasive Robotic Urologic Oncology and Reconstructive Surgery program. Which means he's on the cutting edge of complex, state-of-the-art robotic surgery techniques that require tremendous skill and, at times, tremendous resilience and flexibility.
But before he became a leader in this cutting-edge field, Dr. Eun faced obstacles at every step on his path. Whether it was affording medical school, completing a residency in urology, or carving out a niche in robotics, Dr. Eun has relied upon his faith, his family, and his fierce determination to keep moving forward.
In this episode, Andy and Dr. Eun discuss the journey that brought him to Temple, where the field of robotics is headed, and what it takes to be a capable leader in medicine today.
