A doctor in England who spent his youth as a “sour puss” and struggled to get the right treatment has a message for the next generation: You can be a doctor if you want to.
Dr. Chris Wood, an orthopedic surgeon in the London area, has become a pioneer in the field of orthopedics after he was diagnosed with osteoarthritis.
In 2015, he was one of the first doctors to prescribe a medication to treat the condition.
Since then, he has become known as a pioneer of the treatment of osteoarthropathy.
Wood, a native of the South of England, began working at the age of 20 and was awarded the prestigious Royal Society of London Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine in 2016.
He says that it has been an “extraordinary journey” and that he “always knew I was special.”
Dr. Wood’s story of the journey has been covered extensively by The Telegraph, The Daily Mail, The Times, The Independent, The Washington Post, the ABC, NBC, CNN, CBS and the BBC.
The British Medical Journal named him one of its top 20 “firsts.”
He was a founding member of the British Osteopathy Association, and has been on the steering committee of the National Osteoporosis Foundation.
Wood has also written several books and co-authored several papers with other medical professionals.
Dr.’s first experience as a doctor was as a student in the Royal College of Surgeons in London.
“I was a very normal 18-year-old boy.
I had a good job, I was in my second year and I had been admitted to the Royal Liverpool Hospital for a year,” he said.
The experience was “pretty frightening” but helped Wood develop a passion for medicine.
When he returned to England, Wood was a registered nurse.
He began working in hospitals and clinics, and then in outpatient surgery.
Wood has worked in both primary and specialist surgical units.
He has also worked as a surgical team leader in the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Wood said he felt he was not alone in his struggle to get better and was grateful to his colleagues for their help.
After completing his medical training, Wood moved to London and started working in the United Kingdom.
His first year as a specialist in orthopedia led to a call to the U.K. Surgeon General to investigate whether or not orthopedists had been unfairly discriminated against.
In 2018, Wood became a board member of National Oteoporotic Society, a national medical and orthopedical society.
As a member of that organization, Wood has been a leading advocate for the advancement of osteoporotics in the U:p.
On Thursday, Wood made his debut as an ambassador for the Royal Society.
During his speech, Wood addressed the audience and told them that he has been “very fortunate” and said he hopes to become a “leading voice for the future.”
“The best thing about being an orthopaedic surgeon is that I’m still not one,” he told the audience.
