To all the dads who say #ILookLikeASurgeon, Happy Father’s Day!

I’d like to express my gratitude to the male surgeons who have shared the joys and challenges of parenting with me personally as well as with the Twitterverse. I have been touched and inspired by conversations of balancing family and career with both male attendings and residents. For those of us who enjoy #SurgTweeting, I think we have all smiled at the #SurgParenting pics that pass through our Twitter feed.

Synergistic with the role modeling shared through the #ILookLikeASurgeon movement, seeing the #SurgParenting photos of male surgeons integrating career and family life has been inspiring for all genders.

#SurgDads, thank you!
