Dr Bell was born in Japan which may account for his love of travel. He grew up in Canada and Northern California, and, after college, thought that he wanted to be a professor of philosophy and symbolism. However, others found his writing boring, and so he thought a more pragmatic choice would be psychiatry. Dr Bell went to medical school with the desire to be a psychoanalyst. Along the way, surgery instead appealed to him as a way to put thought and manual skill together. After completing medical school in Virginia and surgical residency in Colorado he joined a private practice in south metro Denver. Dr Bell has been very involved in laparoscopic surgery, presenting research
and teaching at both the national and international level.
In his spare time, he enjoys photography, bicycling, skiing, cooking, and travel.
