Jason and Alan were lucky enough to get a LOT of Dr. Jeff Rouse’s time at DS World before he jumped on the “big stage.” In today’s epsiode he tells us about how airway affects pregnancy and new mothers as well as how jaw surgery can affect different types of patients. How do you make a referral to an oral surgeon for the type of surgery that may help airway patients? What’s the difference between surgery for esthetics vs. airway? Tons of great information from one of our favorite guests!
