This piece tackles “prehabilitation”, TopMedTalk’s word of the year. What is it, why is it so important, who is doing it and why are some people reticent about something that is so obviously good for their health? Furthermore, what are the transatlantic nuances to this debate?

Presented by Desiree Chappell with Sol Aronson, tenured professor at Duke University and Executive Vice Chairman in the Department of Anesthesiology, and their guest Mike Grocott, Professor of Anaesthesia and critical care at the University of Southampton.

Recorded at Anesthesiology 2019 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, over 14,000 delegates, clinicians, thought leaders and professionals; the largest gathering of Anesthesiologists and Anesthesia providers in the world.
