Local Medical Experts Share Their Advice
Interested in a late winter health check-up? Who isn’t?
We asked local medical experts to share the latest thinking on four health topics that span the ages. We start with a better understanding of the common occurrence of miscarriage in early pregnancy, then move on to the growing problem of children’s food allergies and new advances in treatments, including advice on early exposure to peanuts. Next we tackle the challenge of diagnosing and treating adult ADHD and end with advice on preserving healthy hips and a look at some less invasive surgical options available.
