Monday, February 27th, 2017 on the Doctor Ira Breite Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine Show on SiriusXM 110: Doctor Radio!

Heartburn.  GERD.  Call it what you will, its not fun to have.  Although medications are great at treating this condition, there is some worry about using them long term and many people would prefer not to take anything at all.  Surgery has been around for over 40 years, and minimally invasive surgery has been performed since the 1990's.  But does it work?  Join us as we speak to Dr. Francisco Schlottman of the UNC Medical Center For Esophageal Disease and Swallowing as we talk about his new research showing that laparoscopic results are just as good as open surgery (and cheaper, too!)

GERD?  Thinking Surgery?  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

After this we have a very open office.  We will taking your phone calls, tweets,  and emails as we have "Ask Doctor Ira/ GI Update: Expanded Edition."  Anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me!

Monday, February 13th, 2017 on the Doctor Ira Breite Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine Show on SiriusXM 110, Doctor Radio!

We are thinking about hearts here at Doctor Radio.  Not only is Tuesday Valentine's Day, but all February is Women's Heart Month.  Join me and Dr. Kevin Campbell as we talk about arrhythmia and women! From SVT to WPW to a-fib we have it all!  Yes, its a lot of acronyms, but we are going to get through them all.

Questions? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS

After that we will have gastroenterology update: Board Review Edition!  As I go through my review to recertify, I will let you know some of the interesting things I've learned as well as answering your questions and tweets on all things digestive.

Curcumin.  You're thinking spice, and maybe yellow rice.  Dr. Ajay Goel, PhD of Baylor University is thinking epigenetics and possible cancer prevention. Join us as we talk about the genetics, epigenetics (this is a vocabulary and buzzword filled show) and gastrointestinal cancers!

We will end the show as usual with Ask Doctor Ira.  Anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me!  Give a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
