What made you decide to become a gastroenterologist?
Ever since the beginning of my medical training, I have been inclined towards internal medicine, and within this discipline, gastroenterology and digestive endoscopy. In the early days these areas demanded a great ability to improvise and solve technical problems, which fascinated me.
Who was the teacher you admired the most?
Many teachers influenced my passion for gastroenterology and digestive endoscopy. These include the Brazilian, Joăo Carlos Prolla, a gastroenterologist who became a cytopathologist, with a deep and sound basic knowledge. Also Professor René Lambert, due to his great ability to understand problems, and his foresight and knowledge in of the area of high GI tract disorders. And Professor Robert Genta, owing to his great capacity in clinical judgement, and his ability to teach the digestive disorders interns in a didactic and clear way.
Which research paper influenced you the most?
The first papers on gastric lymphoma and Helicobacter pylori, and their Editorial, in the New England Journal of Medicine (N Engl J Med 1994; 330: 1267-71).
What is the achievement that you are most proud of?
Along with other Brazilian colleagues, I implemented the examination for specialists in digestive endoscopy, over twenty years ago. We progressed to an examination in multimedia systems, which is well accepted in our society today
What is the biggest mistake that you have made?
Having said many times, in medical meetings, that acute pancreatitis was an absolute counter-indication for ERCP.
What is your unfulfilled ambition?
To give the entire community the possibility of a continuous education, using the Internet as a source of knowledge.
How do you relax?
Making endoscopy clips and traveling.
What is your favorite sport?
Soccer, of course. Also cheering for my teams: Internacional from Porto Alegre, and Ypiranga from Erechim.
What is your best place in the world?
My own Brazil, and especially two towns: the one where I was born, Erechim, and the one where I work, Porto Alegre.
What is your favorite film?
"Mash", and afterwards the television series because I had so much fun watching it, and I could relax from my medical practice.
What car do you drive?
Toyota Corolla.
What is your best electronic 'toy'?
My PC and its imaging plates.
What book are you reading at the moment?
"My son, the doctor". Medicine and the Jewish culture in history, literature - and in the humor of Moacyr Scliar.
Why did you get in involved in GastroHep.com?
I see a journal on-line as a means of democratizing knowledge, making it possible for medical progress to instantly reach the entire in the world.
