Boone Hospital Center’s Pain Management Clinic Trials Groundbreaking Drug-Free Pain Management Technology

Spicy Enchilada Spaghetti Squash Boats

This recipe has a nice balance of carbs (the starchy squash), non-starchy veggies (onion, spinach, mushroom, jalapeno), and protein (cheese, chicken). I like the simplicity and how it can be a surprisingly quick recipe if you are good at multitasking in the kitchen. Feel the freedom to switch up the veggies, use rotisserie chicken, and/or use whatever kind of cheese your heart desires.

Nutritious Beet Hummus
Beets don’t have the best reputation because many people say they taste like “earth” …so basically dirt.

Comforting Mind And Body
As the weather begins to cool down, often our kitchens begin to heat up. Warm, filling comfort foods fill our stoves and ovens.
Pregnant, With Cancer

There’s really no rhyme or reason to pregnancy symptoms. Morning sickness, fatigue, food aversions — as far as anyone can tell, it mostly comes down to luck.

As she carried her first child earlier this year, Tanna Niemeier seemed to have especially bad luck. She found herself suffering a painful hemorrhoid outbreak — a problem some moms face while pregnant.

Helping Athletes One Player At A Time

When Southern Boone High School senior Trint Lederle injured his shoulder weightlifting, he didn’t know his injury would jumpstart a desire for a career in medicine, but it did.

Trint tore his labrum while weightlifting with some of his fellow soccer players this spring. The injury caused him a lot of pain and limited his movement and ability to be as active as he liked.

Gynecologic Oncologist Sara Crowder, MD Ranks In Top One Percent Worldwide

For the past two years, Dr. Crowder has performed more of these types of surgeries than anyone else in Missouri and is in the top one percent worldwide. Boone Hospital Center acquired the da Vinci system, which offers 3D imaging and 360-degree movement of instruments, in 2011.
