Warmer weather is upon us, which hopefully means spending some more time outside.

As your wardrobe also gets lighter and more skin gets a chance to interact with the great outdoors, just a few tips to keep in mind.

Obesity is a rapidly expanding problem in the United States. Current research suggests that over 127 million Americans are overweight, and over 35% of Americans are obese. This means three out of every five Americans are either overweight or obese and the percentages have doubled over the past 20 years. In the United States, up to 300,000 deaths per year can be linked to obesity.

As an orthopedic surgeon, this is one of the most common complaints I hear from patients. Many knee problems occur during sports or recreational activities, work-related tasks, or home projects. Knee problems may also manifest due to injury, disease, overuse, or just every day wear and tear. Knee issues affect people of all ages from children to the elderly, and most everyone will experience knee problems at some point in their lives.

Captains of the ship: Hospitalists coordinate the care of patients in the hospital

By Uday Tata, M.D., Hospitalist

In the past, care for hospitalized patients was provided by their primary care physicians who would round on them once a day and be on call. As medical knowledge evolved and research data showed earlier and timely interventions are instrumental to better outcomes, hospitals moved to providing dedicated doctors for the hospitalized patients, who are available to see patients anytime of the day. This has shown tremendous improvement in safety, quality metrics and better morbidity outcomes and this prompted the American Hospitals to institute Hospital Medicine as a service they provide.
