Lightbulb Video Interview with Dr. Thomas Webster

On Columbus Day, I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Thomas Webster, an orthopedics researcher and professor at Brown University. This fifty-five minute on-camera interview covered a lot of ground:

1. Prosthetic designs and device failures
2. Orthopedic device infections
3. Types of bacterial infections
4. Bone turnover & osteoporosis
5. Osteoporosis medications & efficacy
6. Bacterial biofilms on orthopedic devices
7. Biofilms defined
8. Biofilms and antibiotic resistance
9. Challenges in biofilm eradication
10. Deploying nanotechnology: antibacterial design
11. Enzymes and electromagnetic fields for biofilm eradication
12. Beating biofilms

We’ve distilled some of the pertinent parts of the interview into a 10 minute clip, now uploaded onto our own channel on YouTube, see:

Thank you, Tom, for your time and experience which is of great interest and value to this patient community!
