No one wants to have surgery, but it might be the one thing that can relieve your pain. Harvey Warren, author of the new book The Optimized Patient, joined us along two contributors to the book--former MMA fighter Nate Quarry and Doug Amend, an outdoor enthusiast injured in a 300-foot fall off Broken Top-- all three men have had spine surgery. They joined us to share how our bodies are programmed to heal, but too often we are unaware that we are working against our own healing. The damaging effects of incisions, anesthesia, antibiotics and opioids demand that you "Optimize" before and after surgery for your best recovery. No matter how perfect the surgery, your surgeon needs your commitment and help to achieve your goal of a pain-free life.
