    Spine surgery, pain management and quality of life

    The right care at the right time supports patient in achieving life goals

    In 1985, Tom Shaw was an athletic, optimistic high school sophomore in Enid, Oklahoma. At just 16, he was already being recruited by many college football programs.

    Then he was in a terrible car accident, smashing into an embankment. He and his family were told that he would never walk again.

    “You don’t know Tom,” said his family.

    After a 14-hour operation, weeks in a hospital and rehab facility, Tom hobbled out with braces up to his hips and crutches under his arm. But just six months after surgery, he required another.

    Spine specialists

    A year later, the Shaw family moved to Ellsworth, Kansas. When the family learned about the spine experts at The University of Kansas Health System in Kansas City, Kansas, they decided to make the three-hour drive. They met with two of the most prominent, well-respected orthopedic surgeons in the nation, Marc A. Asher, MD, and Raymond Jacobs, MD.

    It was the beginning of a healthcare relationship that would last for the next 32 years – and counting.

    A year after Tom’s horrific accident, Drs. Jacobs and Asher performed his third spine surgery, his first here. After one final surgery in November of 1986, Tom’s condition greatly improved.

    When he graduated from high school six months later, he walked across the stage to accept his diploma without any support except for one ankle and foot brace. His classmates didn’t expect to see him without a wheelchair, crutches or cane.

    They didn’t know Tom.  Read more....

    SUNDAY, AUGUST 12, 2018

    1:00 - 3:00 P.M.

    I am so excited! I have been traveling, it seems near endlessly lately. You see I have this thing for top quality ingredients that promote both health and beauty. I will go pretty much anywhere to get them and learn from the best chefs, health coaches, and farmers.

    Now that I have returned home (enjoying a bit of serenity …for a moment); I am now ready to share with you what I have learned and hopefully delight all of your senses with both a brunch and presentation.

    Consider this to be a personal invitation to you from both my heart and kitchen.

    Please join me on Sunday, August 12th from 1-3 P.M. for Brunch and Presentation. We will discuss ways to “spice up your recipes”, boost your smoothies, and the wonders of bone broth, just for starters.

    RSVP by 8/10/18

    Looking forward to an awesome afternoon.
