Quote
I think the greatest moments in my career have come from when people tell me they have been in some type of chronic pain for a significant number of years, and I can provide them some relief. Being able to provide a resource to people who had accepted the y would ‘ just live ’ with the pain the rest of their lives is a great feeling.
