Question: Can you share your background, expertise and what inspired you to become CEO of Csurgeries? 

Alex: My background is as a serial entrepreneur, I’ve been blessed to grow companies and businesses and become an investor in those businesses. When I was first exposed to CSurgeries, I was really amazed at the platform they had established.
It really hadn’t dawned on me how important it is for an individual to be able to look at doing surgery and be able to see what’s happening. 
With my father’s involvement in founding a medical journal, I had a deep understanding of the rigorous processes involved in peer-reviewed publications. Witnessing how CSurgeries enabled surgeons to observe procedures firsthand was truly compelling. Recognizing the robust foundation they had built for their business, I eagerly embraced the opportunity to be a part of their journey.

Question: What is your transformative vision for CSurgeries? 

Alex: The vision for CSurgeries is beyond just surgeons. When I originally saw how important “seeing something” is, I saw the opportunity to build an amazing community. I think that we want to first, build this community of surgeons which we’ve already done. 
Dr. Richter has done an amazing job as Chairman of the Board of building out a platform and we see the platform going beyond just surgeons, but going to other areas where that vision of seeing something is so important. Radiology, potentially looking at dermatology and these other areas where that vision and tactile nature of the profession is essential. 
We see this as a platform where we can build an amazing community of medical practitioners and educational resources for those medical professionals that go beyond just the written word. 

Question: How do you see online video-based platforms reshaping surgical proficiency and what role do you Csurgeries play in this transformation? 

Alex: I really believe that CSurgeries has the opportunity to be the transformative platform out there. I was only exposed to this about two years ago. When I first saw a presentation on CSurgeries, it had not dawned on me how important the visual nature of that profession is. 
It has the opportunity to be a world leader in educating and becoming a platform in a community for surgeons – eventually other medical professionals that require so much on this visual acuity and visual nature of their practices. 

Question: Could you describe your leadership style and some innovative strategies you have in mind to foster CSurgeries growth? 

Alex: I am not a surgeon, my leadership needs to be modified to be able to attract surgeons, to be able to work with surgeons.  As an entrepreneur, I recognize that assembling a strong team is pivotal in building any successful business. CSurgeries boasts an exceptional team, led by Dr. Richter as Chairman of the Board, along with an outstanding editorial staff.

My leadership revolves around devising a comprehensive strategy and fostering a team that can effectively execute it. Many components of the strategy have already been successfully implemented. Currently, my focus lies on guiding the company in alignment with the board’s direction, enabling the execution of the meticulously developed business model. My leadership style is to build an amazing team and then let that team do their job. 

Question: What excites you most about engaging with the CSurgeries community, including its content creators and CSurgeries subscribers? 

Alex: One of the things that drives me is impact. I’m interested in doing things that have an impact. 
I see an amazing financial opportunity with CSurgeries, but I also see an amazing opportunity to have an impact. I was giving a presentation the other night, talking about how CSurgeries can really help these surgeons who have incredibly busy schedules, I have a busy schedule, but if I miss an appointment, nobody’s going to die. With the audience that we have, literally, human lives hang in the balance. 
I am so excited about being able to have an impact and help this group of people who are dedicated to helping other people, making their lives easier, educating them and having that impact that we all know is feasible and possible with this platform. I’m thrilled to be able to participate in something that has the potential to have such an amazing impact on the world. 

Question: In your view, what are the primary challenges in advancing surgical education and how do you intend to address them? 

Alex: One of the huge challenges that I mentioned was just busy, these surgeons are incredibly busy. How do they find the time? We have to clearly demonstrate that we’re giving them value for that investment of time. CSurgeries has gone a long way to demonstrating that having a reliable source. 

I’m often told, Alex, that can be found on the Internet, well you can find anything on the Internet. What we have to do is to demonstrate that the information that we’re providing is peer-reviewed information and videos that were validated by board-certified doctors in different surgical and medical fields.

It’s really challenging to get a medical professional’s attention when they’re so busy. but we’ve done an amazing job already of demonstrating we can do that, with the current number of users that we have and the number of videos already in the library. It’s a challenge that we’ve already met and now we just need to move, go forward, grow and expand the base that we already have. 

Question: What can the CSurgeries community expect in the new development of the platform?

Alex: I’m really excited, that’s where my expertise can lend a hand in this. You will see some really exciting things in the not-too-distant future. One of those is a new platform that allows not only the delivery of these amazing videos but also to establish a surgical community. There will be forums where surgeons can discuss these different videos and interact in a very safe and secure environment. 
Those are some of the things I’m really excited about, moving towards and delivering additional products and services that our medical professionals can really dig into, it will provide them tremendous value and engage with us in building and expanding this digital platform.

That’s something I have done, that’s something I’ve worked on for a long time, building these digital communities and it’s something I’m very interested in being able to bring to the CSurgeries community. 

With Alex’s supervision, CSurgeries is poised to be the leading global platform for peer-reviewed surgical videos.To learn more about Alex Day, please explore his LinkedIn Profile. If you would like to connect with him directly, you can reach out via email at alex.day@csurgeries.com.
