Dr. Vitas is a military aviation enthusiast, private pilot, and a bluegrass guitar player. He and his wife, Jewel, have two sons: Joey, a graduate of The Berklee College of Music (Boston), and Danny, a graduate of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
I am very interested in direct patient care and clinical medicine. Natural technical skills in hand-eye coordination, combined with close patient contact, interest in procedural, well-defined curriculum, and a strong desire to teach led me directly to surgery.
In addition to skilled, thoughtful and caring partners, who are most importantly true human beings, SGS has absolute top-notch physician assistants, and managerial and office staff. As surgeons, we have excellent support at all times, with patient care the absolute common primary objective.
