  • Medicine and a steady dose of common sense can keep us moving and functional with the highest quality of life possible.
.
At this moment, I’m thinking about all the wonderful things that medicine can do to stop infections, enhance healing, and keep us active. In nearly every medical field I can think of, there have been incredible advances in technology and treatment methodology.
.
In my realm of medicine, for many decades now neurosurgeons such as myself can reverse most causes of chronic back and neck pain. Some treatments are outpatient procedures that take only an hour or so to perform. Medical developments about two decades ago allow me to implant artificial discs as replacements for damaged or herniated ones. Even more recently, I can reverse cervical spinal fusions and restore full natural range of motion.
.
Lately, these and other developments in medicine have emboldened my approach to different ways we can stave off our greatest medical challenge: aging. Link to full article in bio.

  • Sometimes, very often actually, I start playing with my #pictures, make my eyes wider, my nose smaller, my waist #tighter and then a thought came on my #mind : if I ever got to a point where I can #afford any kind of #surgery, would I ? I differently would, I would say and then a moment later I change my mind and think that I should work on my inner self so I can accept #myself more … but if I can change my #appearance to #something better why not avoid that whole inner work… 
the #debate is still on, and I still can’t afford, so I am choosing the #cheaper solution, working on my #insecurities, I did quite a bit actually, maybe, the day I’ll be able to pay for surgery I won’t need it #anymore …
Do you have similar thoughts too ? how do you deal with it ? (swipe to see the edits )

  • And after a long day of very little rest and recuperation I really needed a treat. So this nice-cream made with frozen bananas, cocoa and raw milk exactly hit the spot.
The end of day 681 since I was told I needed urgent surgery, day 55 since that surgery was cancelled. 
Day 5 since the hospital admitted it was an admin error that led to the cancellation (not an emergency as they claimed at the time). STILL NO MENTION OF A NEW DATE. #fuckendo and #savetheNHS

  • ‼️PLEASE READ‼️ Hi everybody, I’m reaching out to you today because I’m in desperate need of your help. Thunderbolt has decided to eat a large wool sock that is stuck in his small intestine and will not pass without life saving surgery. The vet has just told us it will cost 3-4 thousand to preform the surgery. We live on a single parent income, my mom has worked hard her whole life to support us and unfortunately we don’t have any savings. I’m not one to reach out and ask for help but I have no choice. He means everything to me and I will do whatever I have to do to make sure that he stays a beloved family member for many more years to come. ‼️Please visit the link in my BIO‼️ and even if you can’t help us monetarily which I totally understand please share and pass it on.  Much love ❤️

  • Why social media? 📲
.
All throughout medical school other people told me Surgery is too hard, you won’t have a social life, your relationship will suffer, you will never be there for your family, or women surgeons shouldn’t have kids. After a while, I started to believe them. Surgery was always my passion but sometimes I was really discouraged.
.
In the end I decided to do what was best for me and stop listening to others. I started Surgical residency and have never looked back. Sure having social media in residency is challenging. I don’t post about my day to day life to protect patient safety and sometimes the only thing I’m looking forward to is some sleep so I’m not scrolling through Instagram. So why have one?
.
I wanted to share my story as a female in surgery to show other women the truth about our specialty and be an inspiration to others who want to pursue surgery but they too were told they can’t. I’m a female surgical resident, love what I do, have a supportive relationship, and still have time for the things I love to do outside of the hospital. Most importantly, I now have had the amazing opportunity to connect with so many amazing people throughout this process!

  • finally, some biochem notes 😂 is it bad that i miss ochem? one year ago today i was studying resonance and LOVED it.

i’m feeling unmotivated to make a solid caption so all i’m gonna say is that i hope you all have an amazing day! drop a comment and let me know one thing you’re grateful for, even and especially if your day is rough already.

for me, i’m thankful for the network of strong women i’ve gotten through the panhellenic network at my school. it’s currently Sorority Appreciation Week at my school which is so sweet 🥺 it’s really cool to see people notice how involved we are across campus / town. we all volunteer and support local organizations and make up the majority of those who volunteer to work camps and orientation :) also, you can get to my study playlist through the link in my bio :)

  • i have so many people DM me asking about my jobs and how they’ve impacted my undergraduate career. i’ve also come to discover that SO MANY undergraduates don’t think that getting a job in their field in undergrad is important or even doable. so, why is working in your desired field before you graduate so important?

future employers will almost ALWAYS pref experience over just training. your experience can be worth so much more than a few letters behind your name or a piece of paper. while some careers require certification or a degree, it’s still very helpful to get as close as you can. for example, i LOVE the OR. my absolute favorite place in the hospital. surgical tech required a certification, but anesthesia tech didn’t- i got to work as one for a year and loved it. when i go to apply for med school, it’s a positive on my application to see that i had worked in the ER & OR and have a good taste of the medical field.

plus, having these jobs helps you get a taste for if you REALLY DO like the field you’re going into. as an ER scribe alone, i may be wary because the ER isn’t my ideal practicing environment as of right now. but having been in the OR, i know that i have a ton of specialties that i would love. THIS is why shadowing is also so important! for any career you can!

i will say- getting that first job is the hardest. i applied to dozens of jobs over the course of a year before i worked as an anesthesia tech. but once you get your foot in the door, it’s there.

i’m so excited to be featured in an upcoming premed virtual summit where i get to talk about HOW i got these jobs. there are also tons of other speakers who have lots of advice! you can register while it’s STILL FREE via the link in my bio!
