Role Reversal: When the Doctor Becomes the Patient

Authored by: Dr. Thomas Schuler

They say doctors don’t make good patients – but that’s not always the case… and sometimes when the doctor becomes the patient – it makes them a better doctor!  

That’s definitely the case for Dr. Thomas Schuler – Spine Surgeon and Founder of VSI. Dr. Schuler’s empathy for his patients is made stronger because of his own experience as a patient himself.

Renowned internationally as a leader in treating neck and lower back conditions – he has had spine surgery twice and has also undergone regenerative medicine.

In this episode, he shares his experience as both a doctor – and a patient.
