Behind The Knife: The Surgery Podcast

Behind the Knife is a podcast aimed for everyone interested in not only an in-depth look at the broad range of surgical topics, but a "behind the scenes" look at the interesting, controversial and humanistic side of surgery from some of the giants in the field. Come along with Kevin Kniery, Jason Bingham, John McClellan and Scott Steele on a journey that explores all the disciplines of General Surgery in this informal discussion and interview format. We feel that this is the perfect medium not only to cover important educational topics for all stages of your professional career, but allow you to listen to a first-hand account of not only where we have been from those that pioneered the way, but also an opportunity to explore where we are now and are headed in the not so distant future from surgical leaders.

"Failing Forward" was a recently presented panel discussion at the Academic Surgical Congress.  Dr. Justin Dimick and Dr. Dorry Segev moderate this excellent panel  of top surgeons (listed below) who discuss a specific example of failure and how they recovered through persistence and dedication.

Any surgeon, junior or senior, will appreciate this candid look how today's successful surgeons thrived in the face of diversity.  Very inspiring and motivating!  

Panel members in order of presentation:  Drs. Timothy Pawlik, Michael Englesbe, Melina Kibbe, Mary Hawn, Keith Lillemoe, and Carla Pugh.

Enjoy and thank you to everyone for allowing us to publish this great talk!

At the Academic Surgical Congress last week we were fortunate enough to sit down with Dr. Craig Kent from University of Wisconsin and Dr. Michael Englesbe from University of Michigan for longer sessions.  So we combined them into one large, diverse, and awesome podcast for everyone to enjoy!

Dr. Kent talks with us about academic medicine and his research in vascular surgery (specifically molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying vascular disease) and then Dr. Englesbe gives us a great rundown of preoperative optimization (MSHOP project) and gives us tips and tricks on dealing with cirrhotics in General Surgery.

Two great talks from two great physicians!!
