“Our real ‘next barrier’ in the continuum of care is, it’s okay to have pain, right? It’s expected to have pain. […] but it is better for you recovery wise, complication wise; to be able to get up, move around, know what’s going on, not be confused, right? A little bit of that education goes a really long way.”

The opioid crisis, spine surgery, working as a team, pioneering efforts being done at the world leading Norton Leatherman Spine Center, enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) and some of the fascinating research our guest is conducting; all this and more as our “TopMedTalks to…” series makes a welcome return.

Presented by Desiree Chappell with Jeffrey Gum, Assistant Clinical Professor (Gratis), Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Louisville, Pediatric and Adult spine surgeon at the Leatherman Spine Center in Louisville, KY.
