Relieving Chronic Heartburn
Free Health Lecture

gerdlecutreWhile most of us suffer from heartburn at one time or another, nearly 30 million Americans suffer from chronic heartburn, also known as GERD. Burning pain, burping, coughing and regurgitation are common symptoms of GERD. Left untreated, GERD can lead to serious health problems — sleep apnea, asthma and sometimes esophageal cancer. Luckily, effective treatments are available.

Come learn about the latest approaches for relieving chronic heartburn — from lifestyle changes and medications to new surgical treatments, including da Vinci robot-assisted surgery.

Speaker: Susan Skaff Hagen, MD, of Boulder Valley Surgery
When: Thursday, April 24, from 6 to 7 p.m.
Where: Congregation Har HaShem, 3950 Baseline Rd., Boulder

High Tech You Can Touch
GET A HANDS-ON LOOK AT OUR SURGICAL ROBOT

robotRobot-assisted surgery is changing the surgical experience for many patients – it offers less pain, less scarring and a quicker recovery. With the da Vinci Si Surgical System, specially trained surgeons operate through a few small incisions, providing a
minimally invasive approach for many complex surgeries. This advanced technology enables your surgeon to operate with enhanced vision, precision and control.

We’re currently using robot-assisted surgery for a variety of conditions and procedures, including hysterectomies, gallstones, reflux disease and pelvic prolapse.

Come get an up-close look at the da Vinci Si Surgical System during a hands-on technology demonstration.

When: Thursday, April 24, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Where: Congregation Har HaShem, 3950 Baseline Rd., Boulder

Latest Treatments for Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Free Health Lecture

prolapsePelvic organ prolapse is a condition that afflicts up to 40 percent of women over 50. Often linked to pregnancy, childbirth and menopause, pelvic organ prolapse occurs when your pelvic muscles become weak, causing the uterus, vagina, bladder or rectum to “drop.” For many women, this causes discomfort or pain that makes it difficult to maintain a full and active lifestyle. Luckily, there are new treatments that can help.

Come hear a board-certified gynecologist discuss both non-surgical and minimally invasive surgical innovations for treating pelvic organ prolapse, including next-generation robot-assisted surgery.

Speaker: Brian S. Nelson, MD, FACOG, of Colorado Gyn Robotics
When: Thursday, April 24, from 7 to 8 p.m.
Where: Congregation Har HaShem, 3950 Baseline Rd., Boulder
RSVP: Reservations required. Call 303-441-0580 or visit bchlectures.org/prolapse to register.

 

Preventing & Treating Painful Dance Injuries
Free Health Lecture
dancelectureDancers are athletes. All of the leaps, jumps and turns can take a painful toll on a young dancer’s body. Overuse injuries can occur in the foot, ankle, knee, back or hip. These injuries show up with greater frequency as dancers age, so it’s very important to learn what a young dancer can do to
prevent future injuries.

Dancers, their instructors and parents are invited to hear a strategy-packed presentation by a board-certified sports medicine physician. You’ll learn why dance-related injuries happen, what can be done to prevent them and how to treat the most common problems.
