Oncoplastic Surgeon Featured Oct. 8; Hand Surgeon Rescheduled

A busy surgery schedule forced the postponement of the latest #OurDocTalk chat on the NorthBay Healthcare Facebook page.

Orthopedic surgeon Daniel Birkbeck, M.D., and hand therapist Lori Russell had been scheduled to discuss common hand and wrist problems and the latest in treatment and therapy during the chat on Sept. 21 but a full surgery schedule kept Dr. Birkbeck's hands full - literally!

Such is the life of an orthopedic surgeon.

The chat has been rescheduled for noon to 12:30 p.m. on Oct. 18.

Meanwhile, the next #OurDocTalk chat will focus on oncoplastic surgery, what it is and which patients can benefit from it.

Oncoplastic surgeon Jason Marengo, M.D., will answer questions during the chat via Facebook Live streaming video from 3 to 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 8, on NorthBay Healthcare's Facebook page at Facebook.com/NorthBayHealthcare.
