Andrea Trescot, MD takes on the subject of Controlled Substance Management

Enter the Grand Dame of pain in our universe. Andrea Trescot, MD. She is fast becoming a Titan in our field. Dr. Trescot has begun her ascent, and there's no stopping her. Andrea and I have been friends for years, and her potential was recognized as unlimited years ago.  When you get a chance to talk to her(she's eminently approachable) have her talk to you about the time she worked at Walter Reed when Reagan came in after he was shot. She was one of the docs that took care of him. Sooooo, how about now. Take it fast forward to the pain management world and her renowned position in the World Institute of Pain and Pain School International, which she founded. Dr. Trescot travels the world educating physicians to fill the void where pain care is early in development, undoubtedly impacting thousands of patients. She comes home, and speaks at the ASIPP® Annual Meeting, where this was recorded. It has been my honor and privilege to be her friend, and I will consider her a mentor forever. She had this little project, we'll call it a hobby, that resulted in 900 pages of peripheral nerve knowledge put to words - "friends don't let friends write books". This work will be referenced for the next century.

In this podcast the versatile Dr. Trescot takes on the subject of controlled substance management. The opioid crisis as it really is. You think, "Will this ever end? Are we it? Did we do it?"  This is a perspective you need to hear. Think about it, we are doing the best we can for our patients with what we have, and the tools laid before us. Her lecture today is a fantastic explanation of how the "world according to me if you choose to ignore the facts" doesn't exist. She lays it out. It's very clear, and I believe that her understanding and intellectual expansiveness has taken us to a more comfortable position with controlled substances. Sound interesting? Take a listen. 

Oh, and by the way, some of the sound may be horrible on my end, this is another podcast in the car.

ASIPP® Pod August 2019 - Distinguished Pain Leaders Prunskis, Prunskis, and Helm Discuss Issues That Face IPM

In this podcast, we have three distinguished leaders in the field of pain medicine. John V. Prunskis, MD, FIPP and Terri Dallas-Prunskis, MD, both pain docs, are on ASIPP®Pod for the first time. Highly experienced, they have been figures in the Chicago area for years. I have known them as skilled colleagues, skied with them, and always have had a great time being around them. Standiford Helm II, MD, MBA, received the ASIPP®Lifetime Achievement Award this year, and I consider this the top of the professional ladder. I am honored to know him, and the other Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Andrea Trescot, MD. Andrea is a true leader in our specialty, and a most deserving recipient.

I have matured through my career with them all, watched the specialty grow- because of their contributions, our patients have benefited. This was a fun interview to sit down and talk CDC guidelines, the opioid crisis, amongst a number of contemporary issues that face us all. The practice of pain medicine, regenerative care, and where this specialty is headed was opined. This is a robust career choice. As Terry Kath (Chicago lead guitar) once said "Let's keep this party going!" Tanglewood 1970, YouTube.

Hope you enjoy this, and yes, I feel privileged to have shared time with them. And it's never enough time, never frequent enough, but let's take this podcast and enjoy it over and over.

2017 ASIPP® November Meeting in Las Vegas

Greetings ASIPPians,

Today’s episode is from the Oquendo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Last November we had an interventional training camp where Frank Falco, MD jumped in with Steve Adleman, MD and enthusiastic participants to learn more about advanced spinal procedures. In particular, percutaneous discectomy. Frank and Steve are experts. I also interviewed Dr. Doug Beal, MD. He is an interventional radiologist and I was wholly impressed with his station. It was fascinating listening to his demonstration of advanced techniques to block pain production in the knee and hip. Frances Riegler, MD will be sorely missed when he retires and we appreciate his service with ASIPP over the years. He gives us a brief overview of the upcoming annual meeting. Maya Raj Andreadis and the leaders of Pain Cast were there documenting these procedures and finding interviews as well. It was a very successful cadaver course. Each one ASIPP brings forward is better and better. Any opportunity that folks can go and learn these new procedures and techniques will come away saying “wow I’m glad I did that.” Enjoy this podcast. I look forward to seeing you at the annual meeting and future gatherings.
