Physical ailments are a part of life, and all surgeons will encounter physical pain or injury in their career. Good friends and fellow surgeons, Angela Smith, MD, and Jay Shah, MD, (and repeat guests on the show) are no strangers to injuries. In this podcast we discuss chronic and acute physical injuries from diagnosis through long-term changes to our surgical and work-out routines. Coping mechanisms, management of pain in the operating room, adjustments to workouts, and evolution of personal identity are all discussed in this fun and inspirational hour. If you have struggled or are struggling with a physical injury, this podcast is for you. Enjoy!
