Physicians are Out and About with Doc Talk Live Lecture Series

Posted: August 15, 2019

NorthBay physicians — experts on joint replacement, ankle and foot care and vascular disease — are fanning out into the community to share their knowledge of health issues as part of NorthBay Healthcare’s Doc Talk Live program.

Brandi Upton, M.D., vascular surgeon with NorthBay Healthcare, shares signs and symptoms of vascular disease, as well as prevention tips and treatment options, during a lecture at 10 a.m. Aug. 29 at the Green Valley Administration Center.

Guests will hear how peripheral arterial disease (PAD) affects about one in 20 Americans, many of whom are men over the age of 60. Smoking is one of the causes and it can lead to muscle pain and cramping, coldness to the touch and sores on the feet, among other symptoms. RSVP at NorthBay.org/SimpleTests.

Andrew Brooks, M.D., who offers hip and knee replacement surgery, as well as partial knee replacement through the NorthBay Joint Replacement Program, will discuss patient options on Aug. 21. His talk begins with registration at 5:30 p.m., followed by a lecture from 6 to 7 pm., saving time for questions from the audience. The presentation also will be held Green Valley Adminisration Center. RSVP at NorthBay.org/Joint.  

Kevin Miller, D.P.M., will discuss how slips, trips and falls can affect our feet and ankles, and what can be done to get you up and walking again, starting at 10:30 a.m. Sept. 18 at the VacaValley Wellness Center, 1020 Nut Tree Road, in Vacaville. RSVP at NorthBay.org/Footpain.
