Tamara Huff, MD, on How Surgeons Can Improve Success Rates and Reduce Disparities by Incorporating Broader Education

Orthopedic surgeon Tamara Huff, MD, was inspired by her mother’s interest in carpentry (and her power tool collection) to take her medical career path, ultimately leading to the operating room. In this podcast, Dr Huff discusses the importance of holistic approaches to preventive medicine and for optimizing surgical success rates. Her practice works hard to provide patients with culturally competent education support that covers comorbidities such as cardiovascular health and mental health. Establishing frameworks to achieve small and manageable steps towards lowering blood sugar, reducing weight, and improving mood are all part of Dr Huff’s determination to bring about behavior changes and to help everyone access and benefit equally from joint replacement. Podcast moderated by Rolf Taylor from Movement is Life.
