Living Better with COPD
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a progressive lung disease that affects millions of Americans every year. Although there is no cure for COPD, what was once deemed to be a disease with a hopeless prognosis is now known to be very treatable. Early diagnosis and treatment can enable people with COPD to take charge of their breathing and regain control of their lives. Dr. Upadhyay discusses the various aspects of COPD, its treatment, and treatment goals for living better.
Speaker: Daya Upadhyay, MD
 
Minimally Invasive Aesthetic and Functional Jaw Surgery
Traditionally patients with an imbalanced facial appearance, dental and orthodontic problems, sleep and breathing disturbances, need to undergo orthodontic treatment and orthognathic “jaw” surgery. It has recently been shown that facial growth can be stimulated and orthodontic treatment be accelerated by minimally invasive procedures possibly avoiding the need for jaw surgery. In this talk the current state of the art of jaw surgery and minimally invasive procedures are reviewed.
Speaker: Sabine Girod, MD, DDS, PhD
 
Surgical Treatment of Emphysema
Current medical treatments of emphysema provide a modest degree of palliation, but there is no medical therapy that dramatically improves emphysema patients' shortness of breath or improves their survival. The new surgical treatments that Dr. Shrager shares could completely change the way emphysema is treated.
Speaker: Joseph Shrager, MD
