Monday, February 7th, 2011 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!

I hope every enjoys their Superbowl. We have a great show planned for tomorrow.

Starting media. Kevin Pho, the blogger known as KevinMD will be joining us. Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) is starting to change how medicine is practiced. Find out how all this computer stuff is starting to change how we interact as doctors and patients, and what its all going to mean soon.

Wondering if Twitter is really going to change your relationship with your doctor? Want to tell us a story if it has...give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Did you see those guys shoveling snow before the Superbowl? In Texas! Even watching it gave me back pain. If you've had back pain you are going to want to hear what my next guest has to say. Dr. Preston Phillips is the Section Chief of Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine at the Warren Clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma will be talking to us about his book: "Your Aching Back: A Doctor's Guide to Relief," which was recently updated! Find out how to avoid back pain, and if you have it, how to make it better!

If you have any questions about back pain or back surgery, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

I have to admit: I spend most of my time on the "Doctor Ira Breite Show" thinking about medicine today: after all its what I do all day, and a big part of practicing medicine is helping people with the best tools available today. But what about tomorrow? Dr. Stephen Badylak, DVM, PhD, a Professor in the Department of Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh, and featured in the new National Geographic TV Documentary "Explorer, How to Build a Beating Heart," will be joining us to talk about the future of medicine. Find out if its possible to regrow a finger!

If you have any questions about where medicine is "going" give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

We're going to end the show with Ask Dr. Ira, where you can ask me any question you want on any medical topic at all...anything you forgot to ask your doctor...ask me!

Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

The Doctor's and staff of Westside Medical Associates wishes everybody a happy and safe Superbowl today!
