Mildred Pasek, my friend and colleague died on August 8th 2017 following an anterior approached back surgery on July 28th at the New England Baptist Hospital. Before you read on, my goal is not to criticize the orthopedic or vascular surgeon’s professionalism, immense skill or personal care of Mildred as these cases affects all providers on a deep emotional and professional level. My concern is for the post-operative care of patients, like Mildred, who have comorbidities, are not necessarily in the ideal condition going into surgery, or at a critical time can advocate for themselves. As well as the debilitating arthritis, she had hypertension required three antihypertensive medications to control. Those meds were held pre surgery, and never resumed.
I know that some of those transfers still haunt me. One of the patients of whom I was most fond was an attorney from a famous political family. She had severe diabetes and terrible circulation, and, at one point, she developed a painful sore on her foot. Knowing the hazards of hospitals, I did everything I could to keep her from resorting to surgery”. This quote shows that the doctor cares about their patients by doing everything they can at their will.

In my opinion this visit was eventful.

From the beginning of high school, I have been interested in the field of sports training and sports medicine. At 13 years old, I developed Osgood-Schlatter disease, which is the inflammation of the patella in the knee. I was advised by my doctor to ice my knee and ask my school 's athletic trainer to help with stretching exercises. The athletic trainer was one of the most genuine staff members I have worked with at the school. Throughout this rehabilitation process, I became interested in helping other athletes fulfill their athletic goals including preventing injuries.
Hi Noshaba, Thank you for your presentation. You have a very profound question as to the role of physical therapists in opioid addiction. It reminded me of the very inspiring words of the APTA president, Dr. Sharon Dunn (American Physical Therapy Association [APTA], 2015). I would like to quote what she said: “Physical therapists can help individuals manage pain, and greater use of physical therapy could make a real impact on the tragic levels of drug abuse in this country- abuse that often begins with a prescription for pain medication. Efforts like these are at the heart of what we mean when we talk about the transformative power of physical therapy.”
It is difficult to describe my entire experience with osteopathic medicine, as it has played a large part in who I am. Throughout my life, I have lived and participated in the osteopathic community. From physician father to physician friends or from my own personal family doctor, I have been exposed to the osteopathic physician. I have spent time in an osteopathic clinic. I have worked with the disabled.
Imagine for a moment, a surgeon in the O.R. performing coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Their objective is to restore normal blood flow to the heart by grafting a vein or artery from the patient’s chest, leg or arm and bypass the blocked artery to the heart. Sounds simple enough. Oh, one more thing, the grafted artery is 2.8 mm in diameter, and there is certainly no shortage of blood and other bodily fluids obstructing the physicians view. In this situation, a surgeon’s ability to stay laser focused and not take their eyes of the patient is critical.
Whenever someone sees a doctor, they automatically assume that they are medical doctors. Many people do not know that there is more than one type of doctors. This does not necessary include the field of doctors, but rather the type. The other type of doctor is known as a D.O., which is also known as an osteopathic doctor. I, myself, did not even know what a D.O. was.
The physiotherapist who was supposed to be the best, was very good and thaught him to use his other arm to support his injured arm. Taylor is very satisfied with the experience as he says he has no complaints about them. We also learn that Mr. Taylor trusts his clinic and they help improve his health care experience. A nurse who was assigned to him took one hundred percent care of him.
