David Hanscom, MD, is a long-time friend, colleague, and neighbor in Seattle. He is also a noted orthopaedic spine surgeon.
David has a personal story about his own experience with chronic pain and recovering from it. He has dedicated his professional life to understanding chronic pain in a holistic fashion.
He is a surgeon who is judicious and very conservative, especially when it comes to addressing pain.
His personal website outlines his own methodology and is highly recommended.
We invite our readers to visit his website and read his book:
Back in Control: A Spin Surgeon’s Roadmap Out of Chronic Pain
Peter Rousmaniere says
I have read Dr. Hanscom’s book and strongly recommend it. The key value of the book is that you read how his thinking about pain and patient care evolved over time, and how he fashioned tools to help assess and treat patients. Thus, the dry evidence in research articles is made urgent.
