Dr. Paul Christo Interviews Pete Egoscue

I always enjoy hearing Pete talk about the Method. Even after being around him on and off since 1995, it never gets old. He’s at it again in his latest interview with Dr. Paul Christo.

According to Dr. Christo’s website:

Dr. Christo is one of America’s leading experts on relieving acute and chronic pain. For 8 years, he directed the Multidisciplinary Pain Fellowship Training Program and for 5 years the Blaustein Pain Treatment Center at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, one of the foremost medical centers in the world. He and a team of specialists help patients overcome the agony of back pain, cancer pain, persistent shingles pain, operations, thoracic outlet syndrome, and a wide variety of other conditions.

Dr. Christo is a board certified, Harvard-trained anesthesiologist and Hopkins-trained pain medicine specialist. He lectures internationally, serves on editorial boards, teaches, co-edited 3 textbooks on pain, and has published over 60 articles and book chapters on many topics related to pain treatment.

Dr. Christo hosts Aches and Gains, the first talk show on pain and pain relief that airs weekly on WBAL Radio, 1090 AM. He is widely consulted by the media on the topic of pain and has appeared as a guest on Dr. Mehmet Oz’s satellite radio show, NPR radio (The Diane Rehm Show and Talk of the Nation), Good Morning America Health, and Retirement Living Television’s Healthline, hosted by Dr. Kevin Soden. He is the pain expert for the live Web Chat series on Pain Management, hosted by the Tribune newspapers and Baltimore Sun.

U.S. News & World Report lists him as a Top Doctor and among the top 1% in the nation for Pain Management, Becker’s ASC Review selected him as one of the 70 Best Pain Management Physicians in America, he is listed as a Super Doctor for the Washington, DC-Baltimore-Northern Virginia area , he was one of eight national pain experts to be selected as an American Academy of Pain Medicine/Pfizer Visiting Professor, and he was one of six experts from the U.S. and Canada to participate in the Mayday Pain and Society Fellowship Program, focusing on media and policymaking.

He served on the Committee on Pain Medicine for the American Society of Anesthesiologists, Pain.com Advisory Board for the Dannemiller Memorial Educational Foundation, and serves as a medical advisor for Ameritox, Dannemiller, Chronic Pain Perspectives, and the PAINS project, sponsored by the Center for Practical Bioethics.

A graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the University of Louisville School of Medicine, Dr. Christo has also earned an MBA from the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School in Health Care Management.

Needless to say, he’s one of the premier pain docs in the country. Take a listen to his interview with Pete by clicking below:
