The Knowledge of Medicine and Business: Lessons from a Surgeon Entrepreneur
Dr. Robert Bray has done it all in his stellar 30+ year career as a Neurological Spinal Surgeon and Entrepreneur. He’s served his country as a Neurosurgeon in the United States Air Force, acted as the Founding Director of the Institute for Spinal Disorders at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, founded his own company, DISC Sports & Spine Center, and holds more than two dozen patents, copyrights and developments for surgical methods, tools and implants. He has found a way to achieve great success in both medicine and business, but how?
In February 2013, Dr. Bray took the time to share some of the lessons he’s learned about the medical field over the course of a life and career that is nothing short of inspiring:
“Some people consider the economy to be bad, or consider it a negative, or consider all of the new changes in medicine to be horrible. I consider them to be growth opportunities.”
“You have to understand where the field is, and where it’s going and what it needs. Stick with the basic concept of quality and develop the rest around it.”
“You have to develop a quality product and it will sustain the growth.”
“I sail race boats, and I ski and I have family. You have to find balance somewhere, or you will burn out, too.”
