Monday, February 27th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio!
Its been a big week in gastroenterology. We can not wait to talk about it on the Doctor Ira Breite Show.
Well, at least not until our second segment! Our first segment involves a growing problem: addiction to pain killers after their legitimate use for post-operative pain. Join me as we are joined by Dr. Mark Kraus, an addiction medicine specialist in Connecticut and his patient "Mike B." as we talk about Mike's struggle after root canal surgery.
And then, colon cancer prevention. When I was a fellow (too many years ago to count) in Gastroenterology, I trained under the team that ran the "National Polyp Study," which showed that removing colon polyps prevented the progression to cancer. Now, the same folks have shown that polypectomy leads to a reduced mortality rate..in other words colonoscopy makes you less likely to die! Join me and lead study author Dr. Ann Zauber as we talk about this important study and answer your questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS
We doctors of Doctor Radio are, of course, master communicators! But what about the rest of those doctors. Join me and Dr. Yoon Kang of New York Presbyterian Hospital / Cornell Medical College as we talk about using actors as patients!
Wonder why your doctor can't communicate with you? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We will end the show, as usual, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any medical questions on any topic at all and I will be happy to answer. Anything that you forgot to ask your doctor ask me! Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
