BrainWaves: A Neurology Podcast


Apr 16, 2020

As my wife and I are raising our 9-month old daughter, and she is eating more solid food, I can’t help but think about how important it is she keep an open mind to new food groups. But being open minded is not just a lesson for toddlers. I emphasize it every day on rounds when seeing patients for a “stroke consult”, or a consult for “ICU delirium”. If you reduce yourself to the same anchoring biases that you've grown accustomed to, you’ll never entertain the possibility of other important, and treatable conditions. Or tasty foods.

This week on the BrainWaves Podcast, Dr. Brian Jankowitz (Cooper University Hospital Vascular Neurosurgeon) joins Jim in a discussion about a rare, but treatable cause of myelopathy. A condition you won’t want to miss.
