Medical Device Rep Podcast: Dr. Augustus White

Dr. Augustus A. White, Orthopaedic Surgeon-in-Chief at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston for thirteen years, Ellen and Melvin Gordon Distinguished Professor of Medical Education, Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School (HMS) and Professor Emeritus of the Harvard/MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. Dr. White served our country as Vietnam combat surgeon in the Army Medical Corps and was awarded the Bronze Star.

An inspiring life story as we journey with him in the segregated South as a Memphis youth, that would culminate in a career that would position him as an internationally known, widely published authority on biomechanics of the spine, fracture healing, surgical and non-surgical care of the spine.

Medical Device Rep Podcast: Dr. Daniel Paull

Braveheart Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Daniel Paull! In his words ….”So I let it all go. No coders, no billers, no insurance companies, no clunky EMR. It’s only my patients and me. I am providing much better care, not because I am a better doctor than I once was, but because I get to spend more time with each of my patients.” Linkedin mensch Dr. Matt Barber joins us for this inspiring conversation!

Article that inspired the interview:

It takes great courage and intentionality to live life in the presence of ‘peer review’. Anectodal living can be instructive but is fraught with limitations!!

Special thanks to the amazing people at the OVM Agency for helping put this together!
