#64: Lessons and Insight on Wartime Surgery with Dr. Al Beekley
Dr. As Beekley is currently a Trauma/Bariatric surgeon (yes, thats correct) at Thomas Jefferson University. He is a military trained surgeon and deployed multiple times to Iraq and Afghanistan. In this interview, Dr. Beekley walks us through some of his most memorable experiences including taking care of one high-profile patient.
He then discusses with us how these experiences have changed and altered his practice during his time in the military and moving forward to civilian life.
As a bonus, Dr. Beekley walks us through his version of a trauma laparotomy!
Almost like a story unfolding, this podcast is certainly unique to our show! Enjoy!
