Monday, July 12th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show, Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio
We are back! After an excellent July 4th weekend, its time to return to the airwaves with a new show looking at all things gastroenterological! Something a little old, something a little new, and something that is sort of, but not quite, blue (this is family radio, after all).
We'll start with the blue. Well, not quite blue, but more brown or yellow. Dr. Anish Sheth, the author of "What's My Pee Telling Me" and "What's Your Poo Telling You" will be joining us to go over any and all questions about bodily waste that you may have ever had. In addition to being an expert on these most delicate of subjects, Dr. Sheth is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Gastroenterology at Yale. As much as this is a "snickery" (is that a word?) topic, its also an important one, and many people have questions and fears about their bodily functions.
If you have ever wondered if your poo or pee were abnormal now would be a great time to give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Then, something new. I remember being a medical student when the technique for laproscopic surgery was created. All of a sudden, patients no longer had a 4" scar as a reminder that they needed their gallbladders out. Recently, a techinque has been developed that could prevent any scarring externally at all. Yes that's right, there are doctors who are figuring out how to remove the gallbladder through the mouth! Also the appendix and we will see what else. Dr. Anthony Kalloo, the head of the Division of Gastroenterology at Johns Hopkins University and a Professor of Medicine there, is a pioneer in this technique, called "Natural Orifice Surgery" or "NOTES." Join us as we talk about this exciting new frontier in medicine!
If you have been considering abdominal surgery and have any questions about this amazing new technique, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Onto something old. Colon Cancer is extremely common in the United States: it is the number two cancer killer of both men and women. Some families have a mutation which makes relatives who have it have an even higher risk than the general population. Now it turns out that this gene may have literally come over, if not with the Mayflower, then pretty darn close to that! Join me and Dr. Deb Neklason, Ph.D and Dr. Blaine Bettinger as we talk about how a single mutation in a single gene in a single person from 1630 has led to thousands of colon cancer cases today.
If you have any questions about your own families risk of colon cancer, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Of course, we will end the show with Ask Dr. Ira, where you can ask me a question on any medical topic at all! (I guess, to finish the analogy, I am "borrowing" your stories.) Give me a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
