Did Your Surgeon Wisper To You?

Well they should. Dr Ester Sternberg director of integrative neural immune program and chief of neuroendocrine immunology at National Institute of Mental Health and NIH has been quoted to say that stress reduction allows the brain to release natural pain relievers. So if as you awake your surgeon or anesthetist whispers soothing words, your transition into the world of the awake will be smoother. I just love when research imitates life. Has no one seen moms cooing their babies awake! But it's a great tip and one that we like to remember and help our patients with. The greatest satisfaction after surgery is when patients say that they feel well!
