About Me

Stanford-trained Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Sina Bari MD is a leading medical device and information technology innovator. His knowledge and expertise are well-respected across the industry as a considered voice in the development of Medical Artificial Intelligence. Dr. Bari arrived at his current career via a meandering route. Following his father's death at age 8, he learned computer programming while translating his mother's computer science textbooks into English. By high school, he had learned advanced UNIX networking and developed biological simulation software using early parallel supercomputers. Working in IT helped pay for college and medical school, where Sina excelled academically. Dr. Bari graduated from the top of his class at Stanford School of Medicine and was chosen as one of only three participants in the noted Stanford Hospital and Clinics' accelerated residency program for plastic and reconstructive surgery. He participated in the Stanford Bioinnovation program, developing devices on the market to reduce infection during peritoneal dialysis.
