Einstein Medical Center Montgomery Opens
For the second year, Einstein Healthcare Network's Sports Medicine Program is proud to be the official source of in-depth injury analysis for the 2015 football season on the Eagles Radio Network, featuring Sports Medicine expert Dr. Rosemarie Boehm and Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Brett Sweitzer.
During the regular season, Drs. Sweitzer and Boehm will discuss key injuries and their impact on players, the team and fans during the Eagles Radio Pre-Game Show. The segment airs weekly on Sportsradio 94WIP.
Birds quarterback Sam Bradford has been looking good, especially this past weekend against Green Bay. But we all remember the low hit he took from Baltimore's Terrell Suggs this pre-season that was a little too close to his reconstructed knee for our comfort.
Should be watching every down of the season with bated breath?
Our own Dr. Brett Sweitzer tell us what to expect.
Quarterback Sam Bradford tore his left ACL in 2013, and then again in 2014. He appears to be on track with his recovery. But now he faces the challenge of regaining full functional mobility and confidence in his reconstructed knee. That'll mean extra time performing agility drills, working on footwork, and working to regain explosiveness….followed by extra time in the training room icing the knee and receiving treatments from the trainers. An ACL knee brace is an option for a little extra security, but there's no substitute for the gains made from experiencing the speed and intensity of the regular season.

Dr. Zaki: Our experts perform abdominal organ transplantation—liver, kidney and pancreas. We work with patients from initial evaluation through post-operative recovery.
We have an extraordinary team of specialists who treat a wide range of liver conditions, including hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver cancer and every type of high risk and complex liver disease.
The majority of my time is spent on liver transplantation. I also do pancreatic, thyroid and parathyroid surgery.
When Pope Francis visits Philadelphia September 26 through 27, Einstein physicians will be at the epicenter of activity throughout the pope’s stay, prepared to deal with many of the emergencies that might arise.
Scott Goldstein, DO, director of Tactical Medicine at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia (EMCP), with multiple affiliations in emergency medicine, and disaster medical assistance, will be supervising Einstein’s Physician Support Unit (PSU) at City Hall, where a 50-bed medical station will be set up.
If all goes well, he says, “I hope we have nothing to do. That means everything is fine.”
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.
