We’re talking shoulder’s with Dr. Paul Favorito, Clinical Director of Shoulder and Upper Extremity service line for Christ Hospital. It’s the chutzpah episode since if Dr. Favorito isn’t happy with his results, he’ll go learn a new operation. Hot topics include:
-His philosophy on being a shoulder surgeon of learning, practice and execution. Constant learning from peers is part of his mantra
-Indications for tendon transfers including irreparable posterosuperior rotator cuff tears and substantial external rotation deficiencies
-Liposome bupivacaine scalene block is the single most impactful thing he’s done to help patients with pain and taking an opioid-sparing approach
-Shout-out to the importance of industry, “How important are reps for surgical intervention as far as safety, efficacy and process.” 80% of physicians who responded said reps are necessary and vital part of the surgical process
