Monday, November 19, 2012 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio!
Gastroenterologists love doing colonoscopies. But how many of them do you really need? Join me and Dr. Mark Pochapin, the Director of Gastroenterology here at NYU Langone Medical Center, as we review some latest findings saying that you may only need one colonoscopy, and if that’s negative, something else less invasive in the future. Or, of course, these may be studies more excited with statistics than the facts on the ground. Either way, its an important issue and one that you will not want to miss.
Do you have questions about colon cancer prevention? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
After that, we will expand the digestive disease conversation and have Gastroenterology Update, where I will tell you some of the latest and greatest news in the world of digestive diseases and answer your questions on heartburn, liver disease, the pancreas, and pretty much anything else. Tweet me any topics or short questions you want me to talk about!
When you live in New York City, your major “road” concern is not getting run over by the cabdrivers! But, for people who drive on a regular basis, that hard driving 18-wheeler in the lane next to you is clearly a cause for concern. There are over 4000 fatal crashes a year involving trucks. While people tend to think about lack of sleep and tough schedules as a potential cause for accidents, Dr. Stefanos Kales of Harvard has discovered a new cause: obesity. Hear what he has to say, and truckers, I want to hear what you have to say to him! Give him a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira®, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all and I will be happy to answer you…give me call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
