As far as I can remember, I always wanted to help people. In my early youth, this led to the decision to become a doctor. My essential goal, as a neurologist, is to help a patient suffering from the pain.
In the modern world, spinal pain is one of the major pathologies. In addition to the fact that the pain prevents a person from engaging in active physical movement, one may be enormously challenged with the simplest daily activities. Canadian writer William P. Young has said: “pain has a way of clipping our wings and keeping us from being able to fly, and if left unresolved you can almost forget that you were ever created to fly in the first place.” The greatest joy for me as a doctor is to see the patients coming back to their lives with the wings widespread.
