A Conversation With Dr. Richard Botham

Truly considered and outlier in medicine, Dr. Richard Botham reflects on his intriguing life and pioneering path in medicine, first as a surgeon and then developing the team of surgical specialties at the Dean Clinic. Under his outreach leadership, the Dean Clinic expanded from one clinic in Madison to serve people throughout south central Wisconsin. While well recognized as a stellar surgeon and teacher, less is known about his days in the cattle business and later growing grapes for wine. You can "see" the twinkle in his eyes as he shared these moments from his fascinating life.
