Shaking hands. It's a universal way of meeting and greeting people, or expressing congratulations.
But what if the person you're meeting, greeting or congratulating has a prosthetic hand or hook? What's the right thing to do? How do you avoid a potentially awkward moment—for both of you?
The next generation of treatment for stroke is now in use at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery—fulfilling the hospital’s promise to bring advanced medicine to the area.
Paul Brady, MD, and other interventional radiologists are now using a stent retriever to remove clots that block blood flow to the brain—a procedure that often proves more effective than the injection of the clot-dissolving medication tPA (tissue plasminogen activator.)
The stent retriever is inside a soft catheter which is threaded through a vein to the site of the blockage.
Power wheelchairs. They're big. They're heavy. They're menacing.
Well, they're definitely big and heavy. But the one thing they definitely aren't is menacing.
Take the example of Rachel, a student whose experience with another student turned from positive to negative with the utterance of the other student's panicky words: "Watch my feet! Watch my feet!"
Q: How long have you worked at Einstein?
A: Two years
Q: What does “More than Medicine” mean to you?
A: It means that what we do here is more than just treating an illness. When we do things here, we’re taking care of the whole person. It’s very easy, especially in a specialty like mine (orthopedics) to focus on what’s broken. Then, you have to remember that there’s a whole person. They have a family, they have concerns, and they have a life they want to get back to. Factoring all of that into your care is “More than Medicine”. The work you’re going to do is going to change someone’s life.
With more than 65 million Americans now jogging or running on a regular basis—a number that has increased by 70 percent in just the last decade—related injuries are becoming much more common. At the MossRehab Running Clinic, our unique approach not only promotes healing, but aids in the prevention of future injuries.
From elite athletes to novice runners, our experienced team of physical therapists employs the most current evidence-based treatments to evaluate, treat and educate our patients.
The concept for the Running Clinic was developed by MossRehab physical therapists John Feeley, MSPT, Danielle Olsheski, DPT, Steve Sepel, DPT, and Theresa Toczylowski, MPT. Avid runners themselves, they saw a tremendous need for a clinic in the Philadelphia region that focused on the specific needs of runners.
Perspectives met with Einstein orthopedic surgeon and foot and ankle specialist Bobby Ndu, MD, to learn about how runners can stay in top form and get back on track after injury.
It was the middle of a hot summer night when two Einstein physicians rushed to a scene out of a movie: a man under a train with his leg pinned between the track and the train wheels; firefighters, police and medics surrounding him; emergency floodlights illuminating the dark scene. While it may have been the most unorthodox operating room for Dr. Melissa Kohn and Dr. Megan Stobart-Gallagher, who crawled under the train to amputate the man’s foot, it wasn’t, as it turns out, the most dramatic emergency for either one.
Dr. Melissa Kohn was volunteering in the medical tent at the 2013 Boston Marathon when the backpack bombs exploded. The tent was near the finish line, where the bombs went off, and she ran outside to witness the bloody aftermath. She worked intensely as casualties were rushed into the tent: “I put on tourniquets, cleared airways, helped do triage.” She also treated one of the victims who later died. When things calmed down, Dr. Kohn returned home on Amtrak – in the same bloodied clothes she wore in the tent. “I didn’t have a change of clothes with me,” she said. “I did get stopped by the Amtrak dog because I smelled like explosives.”
You’ve jumped wholeheartedly into a new gym routine and you’re excited to see the numbers on the scale drop. Instead they are creeping up and you’re freaking out.
How can this be? Exercise burns calories, and as everyone knows, burning more calories means losing weight.
Unfortunately, it just isn’t that simple.
While getting minimum levels of exercise is critically important for your overall health, sweating it out on the treadmill every day isn’t necessarily going to make the pounds melt away.
Here’s a scrumptious blackberry crisp that delivers all the warming flavors of an old-fashioned crisp without the butter-laden calories. This berry crisp works with raspberries too.
Sure, they’re “nice doggies”—and to you or your little ones maybe it seems like they’re just “begging” to be petted.
Not true. Service dogs are doing important work, and if you distract them by approaching them, petting them, cooing to them, asking them for a paw-shake, or anything else that distracts services dogs from their jobs, you’re doing their owners a serious disservice.
