Donald N. Reed 教授是 Lutheran Hospital 创伤医疗服务中心的主任，同时也是 AME 旗下 HBSN 杂志编委。 2009年6月，Lutheran Hospital 在他的领导下，被成功认证为美国二级创伤中心。作为 ACS 大会的 committee 成员之一，Reed 教授每年都会参加这个大会。今年的 ACS 大会吸引了更多的国际参会者，人数之多给 Reed 教授留下了深刻印象。
源于对手术干预疾病的热爱，Reed 教授踏进了外科领域，并在内镜检查术方面颇有建树。访谈中，Reed 教授表示近年来内镜检查术发展迅速，病患对手术的需求不断增加，手术设备也日渐完善。在许多疾病的治疗中，内镜检查术成为最佳选择。他认为，未来内镜检查会更加精确，治疗效果更明显，同时内镜超声波检查等新兴技术也会陆续出现。
