Description

The Magic of the Placebo: The Role of the Placebo in Medicine, Surgery and Therapy

LEE OSTERMAN, M.D., F.A.O.A.

PROFESSOR, ORTHOPAEDIC AND HAND SURGERY

PRESIDENT, PHILADELPHIA HAND TO SHOULDER CENTER

AND DIRECTOR, HAND SURGERY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

CHIEF, DIVISION OF HAND SURGERY,

DEPARTMENT OF ORTHOPAEDIC SURGERY AT THOMAS JEFFERSON MEDICAL COLLEGE

Throughout the history of medicine the placebo has played an important role in the healing response of patients. While sugar pills and the like are accepted in the medical model, many would be surprised to learn how effective the placebo is in surgery. Finally the empathy and care shown by the physician and therapist for the patient may be the most effective placebo. This lecture will focus on these ubiquitous effects of the placebo and how they improve patient outcomes.
