Preparing For The Worst

Posted by Stacy Covitz on Sep 29, 2016 7:30:00 AM

Top trauma surgeons share their experiences at Methodist Dallas’ upcoming trauma symposium.

We all remember where we were on 9/11. We remember hearing and watching the news of the Boston Marathon bombing. And so do the medical teams who treated the many victims. They were the second responders caring for critically-injured patients being brought in by any means possible. That’s why disaster preparedness has become critical for trauma teams across the country, whether natural or manmade, and why it’s the focus of the 16th annual Hobert Trauma and Critical Care Symposium at Methodist Dallas Medical Center.

Your mom gave good advice when she told you to eat your fruits and vegetables. The importance of produce is something you never outgrow.

Posted by Calvert Collins-Bratton on Sep 1, 2016 7:30:00 AM

No one wants a leaky valve; in their bathroom, in their car, and certainly not in their heart. Damaged or leaky valves can be very problematic, especially since there are four of them in your heart. When the aortic valve leading to your major artery narrows, a condition called aortic valve stenosis develops and it can lead to heart failure if not treated.

Posted by Julie McCullough on Aug 30, 2016 7:30:00 AM

It’s such an exciting time: packing every square inch of the car, navigating the interstate, and arriving at the dorm ready to begin life without parental units a few steps away!
