Tune in to this thrilling episode in which Dr. Souryal reveals his enduring passion for….heart disease screenings and preventing concussions! The show starts with a referee saved by an AED and ends with talk of how pro players’ injuries influence gambling websites. In between, spine authority Dr. Scott Blumenthal, and sports medicine physician Dr. Brad Bellard join Dr. Souryal for your weekly dose of current events, entertainment and sports medicine. Callers’ concerns include a ruptured tricep, options for knee replacements and shoulder repairs, ruptured discs in the neck, and more. The Business of Medicine segment wanders from there is no code for ”I don’t know” to how expensive medical equipment gets paid for, or doesn’t, then springboards into drug testing and treatment for OIC. Is that really a thing? Look it up!
