Letter from the President


     I love US Opens in any sport but specifically last week was the US Open Polo Tournament in Wellington, Florida and the US Open Pickleball Tournament in Naples, Florida. I missed them this year but plan to go to both next year!

     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:

  •      In a first-in-the-world surgery, Dr Mark Myerson, MD, Director of the Institute for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction at Mercy Hospital in Baltimore replaced a patient’s talus, the part of the ankle that allows the foot to move in all directions.
  •      Jason Spector, MD, FACS, Plastic Surgeon at Weill Cornell Medical College joined Roger Harti, MD, Neurosurgeon at Weill in a tag team approach to complex spinal surgery. The results are impressive.
  •      There are 332,000 hip replacements in the US every year. Dr Julius Huebner, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon at Allegheny Health Network is one of an increasing number of specialists using the anterior approach. It means they go in from the front and do not have to cut the muscle.

     Samantha Elandary is the CEO of the Parkinson’s Voice Project. It’s free to patients and is something you can work on at home. Also read our special report, “Stress: A precursor to Alzheimer’s” to hear Mindy Katz, MPH at Albert Einstein College of Medicine explain the role stress plays and how researchers are using specially programmed smart phones to learn more.

     In case you missed them, you may want to check our past reports, Premium Content in Archives Premium Content in ArchivesThe ALIVE! Project: Diet Lessons from the Bible Premium Content in ArchivesHIFU for Prostate Cancer. Premium Content in the Archives may be purchased for as little as $9 for 24-hour, unlimited access. If you would like to access Premium Content for the first time click here.

     Our final report has a great suggestion for healthy eating. “Crazy for Caulifower” is very interesting. Did you know a head of cauliflower has fewer carbs than a single potato?

And there's more where that came from...
