The great BJSM just published Stefano Della Villa’s (Isokinetic Medical Group President) interview about his pathology and recovery process after a major neck surgery.
Some highlights of our president thoughts:
➡️❤️The people around me have been fantastic and have themselves been a very powerful medicine. I learnt for the first time the real meaning of the word ‘solidarity’.You need to be weak in order to completely understand the power of your support network.
➡️ ⚕️Working as a doctor often puts us in a dominant situation and it is only when we are a patient, suffering very much, that we can better understand how we need the support of others.
➡️ At the age of 58 years my goals were to try to get back to the shape I used to be in order to live an active life, to be able to play non-contact sports, and more important to play with my growing grandchild".
➡️ try to improve self-confidence because the recovery starts always from the mind and then within the body.
