LowCountry Plastic Surgeon Turns to Israel for Technology

Mike Switzer
Mike Switzer

  Our next guest has been actively involved in the South Carolina-Israel Collaboration which hosts annual visits to Israel aimed at fostering new relationships and potential ventures between Israeli start ups and the South Carolina medical, technology, and business communities.  He says this relationship has been beneficial to his business because Israel happens to be one of the leaders in high-tech cosmetic medical lasers which he is now incorporating into his practice.

Mike Switzer interviews Dr. Ram Kalus, owner of Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas in Mt. Pleasant, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
