Dr. Jonathan Fialkov, the founder of Rational Surgical Solutions, is a urologist in West Des Moines, Iowa. He received his medical degree from University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and specializes in urology at Iowa Lutheran Hospital and Iowa Methodist Medical Center.
"Over 14 years working at a clinic, I saw the same situations arise particularly with patients not understanding all of the implications of surgery. I started asking other doctors if they were having the same problem. Then I asked myself, 'Is there something I could do when I’m communicating with people to make it easier for them to understand?' That's what led me to create Rati-Fi® - and devote myself full-time to it. While it was a big leap to leave my practice, I believe the potential to improve outcomes is enormous."
