Doctor David Samadi of the FOX News Medical A Team makes some simple suggestions for preventing and dealing with hangovers.

Dr. Samadi starts off by explaining that hangovers are a direct result of the dehydration one experiences after consuming large amounts of alcohol. He explains that drinking plenty of water before, and while you are consuming alcohol goes a long way towards preventing this. He also suggests eating before drinking as this can greatly reduce the amount of alcohol your body actually absorbs. Furthermore, he points out that clear alcohols such as white wine or gin tend to dehydrate the body less, while colored spirits like red wine and whiskey are more likely to cause a hangover.

Samadi goes on to dispel two common myths about dealing with hangovers: eating greasy foods and drinking more alcohol. According to him, eating greasy foods will only cause acid reflux. He does say that drinking more alcohol will temporarily stave off the effects of a hangover, but will result in a worse hangover afterwards. He goes on to point out that since the body loses large amounts of potassium and sodium after drinking large quantities of alcohol, eating bananas and pickles can help your body recover a bit quicker.

The surgery was a lifesaver for my wife. Out of hospital in 24 hours, lost the catheter after six days. I was uncomfortable for a few days, but was dry at night after a week! Don't even think about it anymore. 6 weeks post surgery my PSA is 00!! I got my life and my life quality back!

לפני זמן קצר, כחודשיים אחרי שעברתי כריתה רדיקלית של בלוטת הערמונית בשיטה הרובוטית, בביצוע ד" דיויד סמאדי, מביה"ח "מאונט סיני" בניו יורק, שאל אותי אחד מחברי הטובים: "היום, בראייה לאחור, האם היית מחליט לעשות אותו דבר? אותה פרוצדורה? אצל אותו רופא?" "בדיוק אותו דבר!" עניתי מיד וללא כל היסוס. לא הייתי צריך לחשוב אפילו שנייה.

The Da Vinci Robotic procedure has become the new “ceiling” of what medical engineering in the year 2016 can accomplish.  It has become the standard or the foundation from which greater accomplishments can be made.
