Orthopedic Surgeon and Author -- both with regard to orthopedic surgery, and to his expertise on the Beatles -- and all around interesting guy to speak with, Dr. Ronald Grelsamer is a true renaissance man. He recently joined me as a guest on the <strong>Call Your Next Witness </strong>podcast. Frankly, we could have done an entire podcast on the Beatles. (For example, any Beatles fan is familiar with the Red and Blue albums -- but which songs should have been included on those greatest hits albums, and were left off? That topic alone could prompt hours of debate.)
But before we delved into the Beatles, we discussed orthopedic surgery, and specifically, what attorneys should be looking for when assessing a knee injury, both before and after surgery, to gauge whether there is a causation issue. This part of the interview is a must-listen for both plaintiff and defense attorneys in the personal injury world. We also had a frank conversation about the personal injury "machine," and what the defense and insurance industries can do to discourage medically unnecessary surgeries, which Dr. Grelsamer encounters from time to time in his role as an expert orthopedist. Dr. Grelsamer's publications, including his Beatles audiobook, can be purchased <strong><a href="https://www.amazon.com/Books-Ronald-P-Grelsamer/s?rh=n%3A283155%2Cp_27%3ARonald+P.+Grelsamer">here, </a></strong>and the podcast interview can be found <a href="https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/episode-19-dr-ronald-grelsamer/id1552130914?i=1000552145838" title="here"><strong>here</strong></a>, or downloaded wherever you listen to podcasts.
