Einstein Medical Center Montgomery Opens
December can be stressful. It often brings extra social and financial obligations. It can cause a breakdown of healthy eating and exercise habits. It can also leave you feeling lonely or depressed. But you and your family can adopt some new traditions that may help ease the season's stress and make your holidays healthy and happy.
When the holidays become more than you bargained for, your health can be compromised. And stress can put extra demands on your body. Here are some tips on keeping up your health during the holiday season:
Have a heart attack and a medical team rushes to your aid—and rightfully so. Have diabetes—the chronic condition that often underlies disastrous medical events such as heart attacks—and you’re pretty much on your own.
That’s a situation that has long frustrated an Einstein endocrinologist who hopes to change the dynamic.
“It’s been known for nearly two decades that a diagnosis of diabetes can be seen as the equivalent of a heart attack,” said Arthur Chernoff, MD, chair of Endocrinology at Einstein Healthcare Network. “Yet diagnosing diabetes does not bring an ambulance with sirens blaring nor does it bring a swarm of specialists to the patient’s side,” he said.
Dr. Chernoff, along with Einstein’s Chief Medical Officer, Steven Sivak, MD, are leading a task force in the search for more effective ways to respond to diabetes.
Einstein's own sports medicine expert Dr. Rosemarie Boehm, MD, joins Sportsradio 94WIP again this week to discuss the most important injuries that affect Philadelphia football fans. She tackles questions about Sam Bradford's separated shoulder and the concussion from last week's game. Plus, Peyton Manning played last week with a partially torn plantar fascia. What exactly does that mean, and how can you recover from it? Listen to this week's Einstein Injury Analysis Report podcast and read the transcript in this post, or catch it live on 94WIP's Eagles Radio Pregame Show.
Dr. Young is chair of the Ophthalmology Department, Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia.
PERSPECTIVES: Why did you choose ophthalmology as a career?DR. YOUNG: Ophthalmology is a good synthesis of clinical medicine and surgery. The sense of sight is highly important, so working to preserve vison is very rewarding.
PERSPECTIVES: Statistics show that adults are less concerned about annual eye exams than for checkups or specialty care. Why is that?DR. YOUNG: Given that vision is vitally important to most people, it’s hard to understand why more people do not make annual eye exams part of their health protocol. I think it is human nature that we take our sight for granted until there is a problem.
PERSPECTIVES: How could that behavior change?DR. YOUNG: It would help if more people understood that they need to maintain consistency in their care in two ways. They must get routine eye exams in order to help detect early signs of vision loss, and prevent progression of disease. And eye care needs to be in collaboration with their other healthcare providers.
Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford suffered two separate injuries in Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins. He has both a concussion and a left shoulder AC joint sprain. Einstein sports medicine expert and orthopedic surgeon Brett Sweitzer, MD, explains the nature of the injuries, and the likelihood and timing of Bradford's return to active play.
The AC joint, or acromioclavicular joint, is the small joint on top of the shoulder, which joins the shoulder to the collar bone.
Early reports are that Bradford has a Grade II sprain, which means the joint is slightly widened, but the ligaments that hold the joint together are still intact.

Glenn Eiger, MD, is associate chairman, Department of Medicine, and director, Internal Medicine Residency Program, at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia. We recently spoke with him about Einstein’s residency program, the program's particular emphases, and the values that guide it.
Perspectives: How is Einstein’s internal medicine residency program different? What sets it apart?
Dr. Eiger: Our program is structured in such a way that, each and every day, there are structured educational experiences that are patient-centric. They’re also focused on issues related to our health care system.

It was January 2010. John Cooper, RN, had just returned from a family trip to Disney World, suffering what he describes as "the worst headache of my life."
In fact, it wasn't a headache at all, but a 40- x 55-mm aneurysm—a distended, weakened area of an artery in his brain, like a thin, weak spot in a rubber garden hose.
That was the beginning of a long, hard road for Cooper, who endured coma, left-side weakness, anger and depression, and cognitive and emotional impairments.
Every day when Tom Gaylets arrives at work, he’s greeted by his hero. The American flag that flies outside Einstein Medical Center Montgomery, where Gaylets is an executive, belonged to his father, a Korean War POW who died three years ago.
“It feels like he’s there,” Gaylets said.
Gaylets’ father, Thomas B. Gaylets, devoted his life after Korea to patriotic pursuits, including giving away large American flags. He bought hundreds of them at his own expense over the years, and kept them in the trunk of his car. If he happened to drive past a flag that was tattered or otherwise damaged, he’d stop and donate a new one.
When he died almost three years ago at the age of 82, son Tom cleaned out his car. One American flag was left in the trunk. Tom brought it into the hospital. And when a previous flag became worn, Einstein Montgomery removed it and put up the one that belonged to Tom’s father
And so it waves in tribute.
Starting an exercise program can be difficult for anyone. But if you are one of the 78 million obese people in the United States, the challenge can be even greater.
In widely cited research, 278 women were enrolled in a yearlong physical activity study. The group included both obese women and those considered normal weight.
The obese women in the study reported greater challenges to being active. And the more barriers they identified at the beginning of the study, the less likely they were to be exercising 12 months later.
Some common reasons overweight women aren’t working out:
