BEIRUT: Plastic surgeon and CEO of Touch Surgery Jean Nehme is doing his utmost to help trainee surgeons improve, and along the way is overcoming the challenges of being an entrepreneur.According to Nehme, the work of a doctor is very straightforward: "In surgery and as a doctor all you're ever trying to do is diagnose people's problems and fix them".Over the 12 years he trained to be a surgeon, Nehme developed a knack for solving problems. Due to new regulations in the United Kingdom, where Nehme is from, and around the world, to prevent overworking surgeons, their hours are now being reduced. Today Nehme and his partners have managed to raise $2.5 million in funding and the app has 300,000 downloads with 250,000 registered users.The journey to this point has been long and arduous, Nehme recalled.Nehme was heartened by what he saw in Lebanon.Despite the fact that most of the innovation that is currently happening is copycat products, Lebanon is heading in the right direction, Nehme said.
