Dr Sasse grew up in Wisconsin, the youngest of two boys, he attended Spanish-speaking schools in Central America for a part of high school and learned Spanish. He witnessed poverty but also witnessed the profound impact one can make in the lives of others through caring and service. He was interested in a number of subjects in H.S. but especially math and science. He felt drawn to Medicine as a career from a young age, seeing it as an opportunity to blend his interest in science with his desire to serve others. He played junior tennis competitively and was captain of his high school tennis team and a high school All-American. Escaping the cold weather of Wisconsin for the sunny beaches and tennis courts of San Diego he attended the University of California San Diego where he majored in biochemistry and graduated cum laude. He spent his time volunteering, working in the Veterans Hospital, and teaching (as a Teachers Assistant to the lower division students.). During college Dr. Sasse spent a year at the University of Madrid, studying Art history and becoming fluent in Spanish. After gaining admission to the top medical school the country UCSF he quickly focused on the field of surgery and felt especially drawn to the technological aspects of minimally invasive surgery. (Dr. Sasse immediately recognized what a huge difference it made for a person undergoing surgery to have tiny keyhole incisions rather than large open ones.). Medical school brought invaluable challenges, the pursuit of research, several publications in BioEthics and much more. Dr. Sasse saw top honors; finishing top of class. During medical school he could be found volunteering time in a dilapidated hospital in Nepal and finally settling on surgery. During his UCSF surgery training Dr. Sasse expressed a great Teaching interest and won the All-campus Teaching Award as a senior resident. Dr. Sasse is bi-lingual; becoming certified as a medical translator in Spanish at San Francisco General Hospital. During his career Dr. Sasse joined the U.S. Air Force Reserve to serve his country and retired from the military as a Major. Father of five kids, chauffeur, cook, and parent to them all.
