Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Lieberman discuss the following:
Dr. Lieberman, the story of young Beno and the suffering he endured through scoliosis is heart-breaking – which makes the success of your team’s joint effort to bring him healing surgery even more miraculous. Can you share an overview of this medical and philanthropic journey?
It seems Beno is a very lucky boy. Can you let me know a little bit more about your medical mission to those in need in other countries, and how you and Texas Back institute work together to help those in need?
I understand scoliosis is a curving of the spine, in very casual laymen’s terms. Can you educate us about this condition and how it impacts individuals?
While all surgeries are complicated, the outcome you created for Beno seems nothing short of miraculous. Can you share a bit about your background and how you came to your calling as a surgeon in this arena?
Can you tell us what is next for you and your medical colleagues at Texas Back institute? Is there a country, condition or even an individual patient you’ve set your sights on as your next philanthropic mission of mercy?
