Professor Gelber, is there a topic or a question that I didn’t ask but that I should have asked? Is there anything in your interests and experience that you’d like to share with our viewers? You are a very keen sportsperson. I know that. So you practice what you preach. Is there anything you’d like to share? There are two things I’d like to share. One, from my point of view, I’m, really, fortunate that I do a job that, for me, is not a job. I could do this for free. Because for me, it is inspirational. I like to do my job. Of course, it’s also my work and the way I can live. But I love what I do. And some people say. I have many people who ask me how to get into some position similar to mine. I say, just do it with passion. If you don’t do it with passion, even if you study hard and hard, but don’t love what you’re doing, you will fail. Don’t do this for money. Money can come after. But from my point of view, passion is the main area out there. Passion is a tree trunk where you have to build all the different branches. And secondly, my recommendation to patients is this. Now we are living in a very well-communicated world. This kind of globalization allows you to search. Do research, search on the web, or any other area about different doctors, physicians, rehabilitation treatments. Because, unfortunately, although we all study for the same degree as a doctor, many different things make physicians different from each other. So my recommendation is to search, search, and search. Don’t just go to the first physician. Don’t even go to the physician who your friend recommended you. You should do an excellent search. This platform you’re building up very wisely is the right way for patients to be informed. And patients can contact many different physicians with many different specializations. I think it is an excellent idea. What you are doing is very, very smart. Anton, I appreciate your inviting me to share my work in knee injury conditions. I discussed how knee problems must be treated. It is an excellent example of how looking into the available information on the web can provide patients with better treatments. So just love your body. The best way to love your body is to take care of it and try to find the best solution for a disease. It could be a heart condition, knee condition, lung condition. You have to look [for best treatments]. You cannot just go inside the first clinic or physician that you see. You are not just going to take a coffee in the cafeteria. You are talking about health. So my recommendation is to look for the best advice you can obtain, in social media, for example. I agree. Professor Gelber, we hear it again and again from leading experts worldwide, in many specialties of medicine and surgery, about how important it is for patients to obtain as much information from trustworthy, science-based sources before deciding on treatment. And it certainly can affect the outcomes significantly. Professor Gelber, thank you very much for this conversation. It’s the most interesting. It’s fascinating. Orthopedic surgery is a very fast-changing field. Obviously, a lot of different skills are being applied to knee injury, people are moving more. We hope to get back to you in the future for an update on knee injury and cartilage transplantation, to learn more about how this clinical science develops. Thank you very much for this conversation! Thank you very much, Anton. Again, as I said before, thank you for inviting me! It’s been a real pleasure. And of course, we are open to doing some further interviews in the near future. Thank you so much! And goodbye to everyone from Barcelona, Spain.
