Monday, March 1st, 2010 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio
Its a new month, but its the same great show! We have a great show planned for March 1st in honor of the recently completed Olympics . There has been a lot of news recently on strokes and stroke prevention and also about the dangers of abdominal aneurysms, such as that suffered by the father of US 1980 Gold Medalist Jim Craig. What do these two things have in common? The vascular system! Join me and Vascular surgeon Dr. Mark Adelman as we talk about prevention, screening, surgical and non-surgical treatment of this common and important medical problem.
If you or a loved one has a problem with aneurysms, blood clots or wonders about that vauge abdominal pain that you have, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
If you've been watching the Olympics, then you realize that it takes a certain kind of somebody to be able to wear a bodysuit if your body mass index is a bit high. But Steven Holcomb, in addition to driving a mean, gold medal winning bobsled and looking sort of stylish in spandex, also suffered from a potentially blinding eye disease called keratoconus. He was treated with a new kind of surgical procedure. Join me and ophthalmologist Dr. Robert Cykiert to talk about this and other problems of the corneas.
If you are having problems with your corneas, or have been told you need a corneal transplant, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Lupus stinks. I don't think there is a better way to describe it. An autoimmune condition, it can cause problems from rashes to kidney failure to brain damage. And treatments have been almost unchanged for years. Join Anca Askanase, MD, of NYU Langone Medical Center's Seligman Center for Advanced Therapeutics as we talk about new therapies for this disease!
If you or a loved one has Lupus, or if you are worried you might, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Finally, it will be time for ask Dr. Ira, where I can answer any question on any medical topic at all. Remember, if your doctor doesn't have the time, we do!
