Dr. Kent Ellington: The quest for PERFECTION

Show Notes:

  • Son of an Air Force pilot and mechanical engineer and he’s always loved the challenge of building things
  • Was the scrappy guy on the basketball court and loved basketball
  • Wanted to be an Air Force pilot like his dad but having to wear glasses would derail that dream
  • Continues the quest with each patient to find perfection while having the best outcomes
  • Often times he’s competing against himself internally to find solutions for patients
  • One of his proudest moments came when he became an instrumented-rated pilot and his dad gave him the “High Flight” poem
  • Is always looking for new challenges through his entrepreneurial spirit, being a pilot and hopes to one day to work directly for a medical device company
  • Words of Wisdom from Dr. Ellington: “You are who you are because of someone else.”
