I started my medical career as a general surgeon in 2006 after graduating from the University of Illinois Metropolitan Group Hospital surgical residency shortly after Dr. Truong. For the next 10 years, I continued on to work full time as a general surgeon in the North Chicago area, eventually forming and leading the Precision Surgical Group, a team of highly skilled surgeons dedicated to the surgical needs of the community.
I was always the "fat kid" growing up, being constantly bullied and teased because of my weight. As I grew older, health problems started to become apparent because of my weight. With the passing of my close college friend due to heart problems (who was my age) and being a father and husband, I realized that I had to make a change. I educated myself heavily on nutrition and training, eventually discovering the critical importance of hormonal and vitamin optimization. *As a result, I became healthier and happier than I have ever been.
While out for a couple of drinks one day, Dr.Truong and I realized how a combination of our passions of body sculpting and bioidentical hormone therapy could really change a person, both inside and out. Thus, XSCULPT was born!
I still practice general surgery because sometimes nothing beats curing the sick, but with *XSculpt I approach my patients as a whole and strive to prevent some of the potential sickness or reverse the process like I did for myself. Giving a person a sense of wellbeing and helping him or her achieve a healthy physique is unparalleled.
XSculpt is my way of sharing with others what I feel I was able to accomplish for myself. Go XSculpt!
