A new approach to orthopedic post-operative pain
Dr. Kevin Pho features Dr. Jesse Seilernund Aspang and Dr. Mara Schenker on his podcast surrounding the article they cowrote, America’s prescription epidemic: Breaking an ancient promise. Both Dr. Jesse Seilernund Aspang and Dr. Mara Schenker serve in the partnership with the Christopher Wolfe Crusade and Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. Together, they highlight the missing link of opioid education in post-operative pain management. Throughout the podcast, the pair introduce the new position of the Life Care Specialist (LCS). Through behavioral and wellness skills to regulate the nervous system, the Life Care Specialist (LCS) bridges the gap from post-operative pain medication to alternative approaches.
