While in London, Dr. Rad competed and performed internationally in professional Latin American dance – of tens of thousands worldwide, he was ranked in the top 38 in the world in 2002.

Dr. Rad presented this work at the World Society of Reconstructive Microsurgery in Finland, and he has been featured on ,Washington Fox 5 News, Washington WJLA News, and Baltimore WJZ 13 News.
