Videos- The videos, provided below, are made to better inform you of your problems and what can, and should, be done about them. In clinical practice since 1987, Dr. Castanet has worked in orthopedics, physical medicine, physical therapy, and neurosurgery.

The first thing patients want from a doctor is to gain an understanding of the nature of their problem. How bad is it? Is it dangerous? How can I get relief as fast as possible? Do I need surgery? How long will it take to get better? How much will it cost? What are all my options? What is the prognosis? Will it recur?

Too many doctors have too little time to explain all of this to patients. How are patients supposed to trust a doctor who doesn’t take the time to listen to them, get to know them, explain the pathology, the appropriate treatment at this time, and answer all the other questions and concerns patients have, and that evolve during the course of their treatment?

These videos won’t answer all the questions that are specific to any given patient, but providing some general information about these problems can impart some value, and provide a sense of expertise, credibility and competency of the doctor. Furthermore, it can help to allay excessive fear and anxiety that is common to patients in severe pain.

I encourage patients to watch the videos relevant to their interests. There are many more instructional videos on Dr. Castanet’s blog/vlog on this website (find the link, above) and on his Youtube channel (also find that link, above). Godspeed in your recovery.
