Episode 17- Dr. Johnny Delashaw

Dr. Johnny Delashaw is a neurosurgeon from up here in the Great Northwest. He was born in a small town in the southwest corner of the state of Washington, then began his journey all around the country, from California to Virginia to Florida, in order to pursue his passion of becoming a neurosurgeon. He has served as chair at hospitals such as Oregon Health and Science Universities, UC Irvine, and Swedish Hospitals up in Seattle. He mostly operates on the brain but also operates quite a bit on the neck. Here, I sit down with him to discuss all sorts of things ranging from “what is a concussion?” to “what is this ApoE genetic marker and what do we make of it?” I really enjoyed meeting him, he is full of wisdom from thousands of hours of surgery and treating hundreds of patients with brain injuries just like us!

Listen and enjoy!
