I've had surgery several times. Although it hurts after and leaves a scar, its usually 'over' once it heals. But bariatric weight loss surgery may be different. Join me as I speak to Dr. Carol Lindsay-Westphal, PhD at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System and a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor as we talk about the psychological benefits and potential risk of weight loss surgery.

Then its gastroenterology update, where I will tell you some of the latest and greatest news in the world of digestive disease. Think probiotics and colonoscopy....really. Give me a call with your questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS! or send me a tweet.
I saw a woman with a urinary tract infection last week. No big deal: until the culture showed that the commonly used antibiotic I gave her wouldn't work. Join me and Dr. Stuart Levy of the Tufts University School of Medicine as we speak about the new wave of antibiotic resistance.
We'll end the show, as usual, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any medical question on any topic at all...anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me at 1-877-NYU-DOCS! (or by tweet of course!)

We keep pushing people to get colonoscopies and tell them its to remove polyps. And, when we find them, we cut those polyps right out. But what happens after that. Other than the "we sent it to biopsy" right after the procedure to a phone call telling you what it was and (more importantly) when you need to the next one. But what happens when a polyp is "biopsied?" Join me and Dr. Michael Misialek, the Associate Chairman of Pathology at Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Massachusetts as we talk about what happens to that little piece of you when it goes to to pathology.
