Dr. Levi Guest Stars on the Podcast

This episode of Scrubcast features Dr. Benjamin Levi, our honored guest at the 2024 Emile F. Holman Lecture. He shares insights on his motivation for merging plastic surgery with critical care, emphasizing the holistic care of burn patients from acute treatment to long-term reconstructive surgery.

Levi’s primary research focus is on heterotopic ossification. He explains how injuries can lead to bone formation in unintended locations and the implications for patient care. He highlights how each of the places he’s lived, worked, and studied contributed uniquely to his research and clinical practice.
