Kristin Chrouser, MD, MPH is an Associate Professor of Urology at the University of Michigan and Section Chief of Urology at the VA in Ann Arbor Michigan. She is an expert in intraoperative stress - something all surgeons are familiar with - and tackles it through a variety of academic avenues. We discuss physical stress through ergonomics and pain both in and out of the OR. We talk about the OR environment and mindsets that are conducive to a healthy and long surgical career. And we talk about how pain is the manifestation of so many stressful events in our life - whether they be physical, emotional, or psychological. This conversation is fun and full of practical pearls on how to keep yourself pain free and healthy.
