Michael Wilmink, MD
At six years old, I decided I wanted to be a “Brain Surgeon”. I obviously didn’t know what that meant at that age. I played water polo from a very young age and at age 15 started playing on the national team. I played on that team through my third year in medical school. We traveled around the world to play and always had our team physicians with us. The exposure to that profession peaked my interest. The sports side of the profession and the daily problem-solving confirmed my decision to go into orthopedic surgery. Nothing ever presents the same in orthopedics.
