I accidentally came across this YouTube video the other day, researching the history of scoliosis surgery. This is a talk given by the famous Dr. Robert Winter. It is a rare video of Dr Winter speaking as he shares his experience of learning scoliosis surgery over several decades. The IMAGINE lecture series was started in honor of his son Dr David Winter, who passed away of cancer a year before he gave this talk.
Dr. Winter describes his life journey and the incredible experience he has had learning from his teachers and patients alike. And I am proud to say that I was one of his students in Minneapolis.
