As a neurosurgeon, a parent, a coach and an athlete, I have a strong interest in concussion prevention, diagnosis and treatment. That's why I was pleased that New Jersey 101.5 radio recently interviewed me on the topic of concussions.

The interview will be running throughout the day on August 15th, but you can also see the related online article on their website

Today was a specially rewarding event at West Point. As some may know, following retirement from a career in law, my father John J. McLaughlin renewed his lifelong passion for higher education and enrolled at Drew University. Over the ensuing 10 years, he earned three additional graduate degrees, including a Masters in literature, a Masters in theological studies, and a Doctorate in history. His prize winning biography of General Albert C. Wedemeyer was published in 2012.

This program honors the intellectual and strategic legacy of General Wedemeyer through a series of lectures, think tanks, or roundtable discussions for cadets and faculty.

I will be in West Point today attending a presentation by CMDR Eggers. As I watch, I know that I will be both informed and reminded of lessons learned from my father.

Had an awesome time at this workshop held from Thursday to Saturday at the Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston. The course was run by Julie Silver, MD physiatrist at Harvard. Many valuable ideas as the work continues on my own book.

I'm honored and thrilled to have seen my recent article featured in the LinkedIn Health Channel. The article was intended to help open a dialogue about what it means to die with dignity. I hope you'll read, consider, and comment.

Had a great time meeting Olympic Gold Medalist at the Trenton Youth Wrestling Clinic held on the weekend of October 15th. The program had support from Beat the Streets, Capital City My Brother's Keeper, the City of Trenton, and Wrestlers in Business Network of Princeton. Here I am with Kyle and my college wrestling coach: Glenn Gormley of William & Mary.

I had the good fortune to train under Dr. Peter Jannetta. His recent passing caused me to reflect on the many gifts and lessons I learned from Dr. Jannetta

Many surgeons believe that there are major advantages to having a two surgeon team for complex spine surgery. This approach can result in reduced surgical time, reduced complications, and other benefits. This article discusses the issue:

It's not often that you have neurosurgeons awaiting the release of a movie, and hoping they "get it right". Many of us are looking forward to seeing "Concussion" which releases on Christmas Day. It's the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu's autopsy and discovery of CTE in the brain of Pittsburgh Steelers center Mike Webster, and how that led to today's greater focus on concussions in the NFL and in sports in general. I'm hoping the movie can prove to be a vehicle for people to better understand medical research and the importance of concussion prevention and proper treatment.

My passion for wrestling remains as strong as it was back in college. I continue to coach and believe in wrestling as both a terrific sport and as builder of character. I recently wrote an article about one of the health issues faced by wrestlers. I hope it is read by wrestlers, coaches, and parents.
