How DoWe Change theWorld? THE SEARCH FOR NEW TECHNOLOGY TAKES ME TO CHINA
I love hearing my patients’ success stories. When I hear about what they are able to do after treatment and see how their lives have improved, it fuels me to do more. Back when I started, my goal was to help every patient. Now, I want to change the world! I look at how to achieve that, and I realize the key lies in figuring how to make treatments better. From where I stand, the way to make them better is through the use of technology. I have been a technology geek all my life. I loved gadgets growing up, and that interest only continued to blossom as I’ve worked in the medical field. It’s so frustrating to see patients struggle with conventional methods and treatments that don’t work as well as they should. There is so much technology out there, and so many things can help us if we are willing to open our eyes and minds to them. I’m always open to learning about new technologies and exploring the ways they can potentially help my patients overcome pain and repair damaged nerves. At the end of October, I will be spending a week in China for the 78th China International Medical Equipment Fair. Yes, I know I’ve spent some time away from the office already, but I hope you’ll all forgive me. CMEF is the world’s largest conference for medical technology, and I am going to find the latest and greatest breakthrough to bring back to the office. There are 3,000 tech companies expected to attend CMEF 2017, with medical professionals coming from all over the world. I have attended smaller technology conferences before, but nothing of this scale. I look forward to meeting other doctors from Europe, Asia, South America, and Africa who are as dedicated to bringing new technology into their practices as I am. Most doctors don’t want to offer treatments that aren’t covered by insurance, but just because insurance will pay for it doesn’t mean it’s necessary, or even that it will help! It just means lobbyists have pushed some treatment or technology through and convinced insurance companies to foot the bill. I would much rather provide treatments that I know will help my patients, even if it takes a little extra work on my end.
“There is so much technology out there, and so many things can help us if we are willing to open our eyes and minds to them.”
Getting new technology into an American office isn’t easy. I don’t mean there’s a lot of red tape across international borders; all of the technology is FDA-approved. When you bring in something brand new, you need to prove to people that it’s going to work. I run clinical trials myself and spend time getting the word out about the new technology. Luckily, my office is always prepared to bring in something new.
It’s my nature to be ready to go. If you ask my staff, they’ll let you know that when you come in the door, you should always expect change. Nothing is set in stone, or will ever be set in stone here. Being open to change is how we improve and can make the world a better place. And you never see more changes than in the world of technology.
I am really looking forward to this trip to CMEF 2017. I can’t wait to see what I’ll be able to bring back!
