We have a great show planned for Monday! My kids are hockey players, and sometimes I wonder about what is left on that (more than a little odor filled) equipment that they drag around. There have been lots of cases of infections occurring from exposure to all kinds of sports equipment, but the problem runs much deeper than that. Community acquired MRSA has become a huge issue. Join me and Dr. Brad Spellberg, UCLA physician and the author of "Rising Plague: The Global Threat from Deadly Bacteria and our Dwindling Arsenal to Help Fight Them" as we talk about the growing danger of infections in and out of the hospital.
If you are worried about resistant bacteria infecting you or a loved one at home or in a hospital, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Constipation. A large chunk of my professional life is devoted to helping this common problem. So it really got my attention when a recent study noted a relationship between constipation and Parkinson's Disease. Joining me to talk about Parkinson's disease, including its diagnosis and treatment is Dr. Alessandro DiRocco, the Chief of Movement Disorders and Director of the NYU Parkison and Movement Disorders Center here at NYU Langone.
