NorthBay Physicians to Discuss Health Issues Via Streaming Video

Posted: September 11, 2020

Three NorthBay physicians will present Facebook Live streaming video discussions on health issues as part of the ongoing series of Doc Talk Live lectures on the NorthBay Facebook page ( Healthcare).

Herkanwal Khaira, M.D., will discuss Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), also known as prostate gland enlargement, starting at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 16.

BPH is a common condition as men get older and can cause uncomfortable symptoms, such as blocking the flow of urine. It can also cause bladder, urinary tract or kidney problems.

Then, at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 22, orthopedic surgeon Cornelis Elmes, M.D., will discuss a new procedure he offers known as Sacroiliac Joint Fusion.

The sacroiliac (SI) joint is located in the pelvis. It links the iliac bone (pelvis) to the sacrum (lowest part of the spine above the tailbone). The joint transfers weight and provides support and stability by absorbing impact in walking and lifting. It can be injured or degenerate over time and cause low back or spine, pelvic, leg, or buttock pain. The minimally invasive procedure is designed to provide immediate sacroiliac joint stabilization and allow long-term fusion and relief from pain.

Finally, at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 24, orthopedic and sports medicine specialist Neil Pathare, M.D., will present “Knee Deep in Pain”, sharing tips on how to help common knee pain.

All three chats are 30 minutes long and will include time for questions and answers.
