Two hundred Mississippians suffer a spinal cord injury (SCI) each year, one of the highest rates in the United States. For survivors who join the 300,000 other Americans living with chronic SCI, effective pain management and return of motor function have been elusive.
If there's a remedy for what ails you, Dr. Rick deShazo will prepare a good-sized dose every Wednesday - but not before he delivers a primer on your health dilemma.
So will Dr. Jimmy Stewart on Thursdays and Dr. Michelle Owens on Fridays. Add to the mix Dr. Susan Buttross on Tuesdays and Dr. Debbie Minor on Mondays.
A number of interesting events is scheduled for the upcoming week at the Medical Center.
