Albany, NY – This week, Dr. Stieg talks to fellow neurosurgeon Michael Apuzzo, editor of Neurosurgery, the official journal of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and a team doctor for the New York Giants and the University of Southern California Trojans. Dr. Apuzzo talks about the precautions athletes need to take at all levels of high-contact sports, both professional and otherwise, in order to prevent serious neurological damage. He discusses the evolution of protective gear in the past two decades and shares his theory on the similarities between neurosurgery and architecture.
