Medical Breakthroughs: First to Know

Happiness is so tricky

     Someone has said that if you are trying to be happier, you aren’t going to be happy now. I prefer to think of happiness as constantly evolving and more of a choice you make every single day. I love this article onhappiness from Rick Wack and his daughter. Esalen is one of my favorite places but when I was there no one wore bathing suits in the hot springs and that was a first for me.
     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:
  •      Dr Michael Pinzure, MD, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago, is using a breakthrough treatment to avoid amputation for diabetic patients. It starts with a device called the “lizarov circular external fixator.”
  •      Dr Kfir Ben-David, MD, Surgical Oncologist and Chief of the Gastroesophageal Surgery Division at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach was the only doctor who was willing to treat Raymond Stravato’s esophageal cancer. Fifteen doctors had refused. Remember his name because if you have had GERD, a family history of esophageal cancer, and if you smoke, drink alcohol or are overweight, chances are high that you will need Dr Ben-David.
  •      Dr Ekokobe Fonkem, DO, Neuro-oncologist at Baylor, Scott & White in Temple, Texas is using a new technology to fight glioblastomas. The Optune device by Novocure delivers low intensity alternating electric fields and after surgery the patient takes the drug Temozolomide.
     Our first special report is about a new study at Washington University School of Medicine that showed that some obese people are metabolically normal to begin with and not subject to a higher risk of diabetes, stroke and heart attack. In fact, some may be healthier than their skinny friends. Dr Samuel Klein, MD led the study.
     We also have the full length interview with Dr Robert Wang, MD, Ophthalmologist at Texas Retina Associates in Dallas. He is using Liuvien to put steroids in the eye to treat diabetic macular edema (DME) and it lasts 3 years.
