Monday, March 10, 2013 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Doctor Radio: SiriusXM 81!
Many middle aged men have ignored their skin for, well, their whole lives. It wasn't until I was a practicing physician in New York City that I could even use the word "product" with a straight face! But skin damage is a real thing in men and women, and helping to keep the largest organ in your body healthy and happy is an important part of staying healthy. Join me and Dr. Adam Schaffner, MD, a board certified plastic surgeon and reconstructive surgeon and ENT and a director of the Juva Plastic Surgery Clinic in NYC as we talk about the harsh effects of sun, smoking, tattoos, piercings and who knows what else?
If you (or your man) has a skin problem you'd like to talk about, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
After that we will go a little internally: to GI Update! I will tell you some of the latest and greatest news in the world of digestive disease and answer your questions on anything related to the liver, pancreas, constipation, reflux and more! Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Hepatitis C and HIV are unfortunately both common diseases, and they often occur together. Join me and Johns Hopkins Professor Dr. Greg Kirk as we talk about his new study showing what happens when people have both of these disease and how this may affect treatment of them both.
We will end the show, as always, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all and I will be happy to answer. Remember, anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me! at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
The picture above is rhino skin, but given how most men treat their skin, its not totally inaccurate!
