Monologue

Dr. Wallach starts the show today discussing the impending arthritis epidemic. Doc contends that as the baby boomers age and start to get arthritis the orthopedic surgeons will want to try and replace all 72 joints in the body. He asserts that there are alternatives to surgery to fix achy arthritic joints.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss an article about the use of stents. In 2006 the American Heart Association release a guide regarding the proper use of stents. The guidelines recommend that 24 hours after a heart attack if a patient is stable a stent is not recommend. Previous research has shown that stents in patients after 24 hours do not reduce death rates or future heart attacks.
