LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP)  The man who helped create the book on orthopedic 
sports medicine is surrounded by technology that hadn't been dreamed of 
when he began his practice in the Lake Area in 1971.

.

Then, the primary diagnostic tools were a doctor's training and an X-ray 
machine, or at least access to one.

.

Recently, in a building equipped with MRI, bone density scan, digital 
X-ray, electronic record keeping and several other high-tech capabilities, 
Dr. David Drez reflected on the advancements he's seen in his time.

.

"Jiminy," he said regarding the current tools of the trade. "I couldn't 
even have imagined this."

.

EARLY MEDICAL EXPOSURE

.

Drez remembers the smell of the medical profession from his childhood in 
DeQuincy. His father, Dr. David Drez Sr., was a doctor; his mother, Hester 
Bingham Drez, was a nurse. For 12 years, the family lived upstairs from 
the hospital his father owned.

.

"I remember them putting me to bed and smelling like ether," he said. 
"That was my introduction to medicine."

.

Upon high school graduation, it was off to Tulane University, his father's 
alma mater.

.

"I applied for medical school because of my background. I didn't know 
anything else but medicine," Drez said.

.

He graduated from Tulane medical school in 1963. After his internship, he 
took a general surgery residency at Charity Hospital in New Orleans, south 
Louisiana's trauma center.

.

In his third year, the New Orleans Saints came to town. Dr. Ken Saer, the 
team's doctor, recruited Drez and other young doctors to help him perform 
physical exams on the players. Drez got interested in sports, which has 
more do with orthopedics than surgery.

.

He and his wife, Judy, had two small children. "So I came back home one 
evening and told my wife, 'You know, I think I'd like to go into 
orthopedics.'

.

"She said, 'You've got to be kidding me. You spent three years in general 
surgery and you want to spend another three years doing something else?'"

.

But she didn't have to be argued into agreement. Judy Drez said, "It 
boiled down to: If you hold someone down and don't help them achieve what 
they are capable of, what's the use?"

THE FOCUS NOW

.

Drez, at 73, says he understands he'll have to scale back on his duties 
but has no intention of walking away from the profession.

.

He says he's likely to give up surgery, "but I still want to see patients 
and consult."
