On October 23rd, we were joined by North Jersey Brain and Spine neurosurgeon, Dr. Patrick Roth. Dr. Roth has authored “The End of Back Pain” and “The ME in Medicine,” giving healthcare providers and patients alike, the tools to participate in their own healthcare decisions. This webinar focused on two main topics:

  1. Dr. Roth’s approach to treating back pain, including pain generators and the mind-body relationship.
  2. Advice for patients to empower themselves in their healthcare treatment journey.

EXCEL President and co-founder, Matt Gibble, PT, joined us once again to share a home exercise program that activates the core that is sometimes overlooked.

Webinar: Same Day Joint Replacement in a Post-COVID World

On Wednesday, September 2nd, EXCEL Jersey City Clinic Director, Amanda Cavallo, PT, DPT, was joined by Riverside Orthopedic Institute’s Medical Director, Dr. Luis Grau, to review the ins and outs of same day joint replacement surgery.

In 2017, a study predicted that by 2027 over half of all joint replacement surgeries would occur in the outpatient setting. It seems likely that given the current times, even more people would find comfort in the possibility to recover in their own home immediately after undergoing surgery.
