How "general" is general surgery? Dr. Mistry and his guest, Dr. Erik Lough of the Capital Surgeons Group and Bariatric Medical Director of North Austin Medical Center, are here to examine some men's health issues that are commonly resolved through surgery.
In this episode, listeners will learn why heartburn is one of the most concerning problems doctors encounter, and why it is so difficult to treat surgically. If antacids aren't doing the job anymore, tune in to hear some of the most advanced options for treatment.
Dr. Mistry also explains why he often recommends bariatric surgery to his patients experiencing obesity. This procedure is one of the most commonly performed operations by general surgeons like Dr. Lough, and is safer than having a gallbladder or appendix removed.
