Orlando Plastic Surgery Center Launches Orlando Weight Loss Program

(EMAILWIRE.COM, January 26, 2012 ) Orlando, FL -- Shockingly, a total of 68.3% of the U.S. adult population over the age of 20 has significant issues with weight! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 33.9% of all U.S. adults over the age of 20 are obese, while 34.4% are overweight!

Also, in 2010, usage of fat tissue fillers rose 14% compared to 2009 (American Society of Plastic Surgeons).

Recognizing these startling facts, Orlando Plastic Surgery Center has launched its new Orlando Weight Loss Program.

But, Orlando Plastic Surgery Center does not advocate for individuals to lose as much weight as possible just to look good. Rather, it encourages individuals to lose weight at a healthy pace.

The Orlando Weight Loss Program helps individuals by creating a weight loss plan customized specifically to their unique needs, medically supervises the entire process, and helps individuals look and feel their best from the inside out. And best of all, this is done in a healthy and medically safe way.

“They trust our expertise and opinions, and we take that very seriously as cosmetic and plastic surgery professionals,” said lead surgeon and owner Dr. George Pope.

Orlando Plastic Surgery Center continues to demonstrate its commitment to helping people look and feel their best. It has already helped many patients improve their satisfaction with their lives. Adding a monitored and medically safe weight loss program to its repertoire of services is just one more way it is looking to help the general public.

29 Jul 2014 at 9:17am

WASHINGTON (AP) ? The price may be high but so is demand. A new $1,000-per-pill drug has become the treatment of choice for Americans with hepatitis C, a liver-wasting disease that affects more than 3 million.



Officials: Little risk of Ebola outbreak in US

Aetna says medical costs rose, insurer shares drop
29 Jul 2014 at 10:37am

Aetna Inc , the third-largest U.S. health insurer, reported a rise in medical costs on Tuesday, raising investor concerns that a long run of low growth in such costs might be ending and pushing shares in the industry lower. U.S. insurer profits have benefited from several years of relatively low use of medical services by their members due to an economic downturn and higher out-of-pocket costs for patients. Aetna said its medical spending rose in the second quarter due to an expensive new treatment for hepatitis C made by Gilead Sciences and the higher costs of covering patients who bought insurance under President Barack Obama's healthcare law for the first time. Aetna shares fell 3.4 percent to $81.94 in early afternoon trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

US Ebola doctor 'weak and quite ill,' says colleague
29 Jul 2014 at 10:30am

An American doctor who has contracted the dangerous Ebola virus in Liberia is "weak and quite ill," a colleague of his told AFP on Tuesday. Kent Brantly, 33, became infected with Ebola while working with patients in the Liberian capital, Monrovia, as he helped treat victims of the worst Ebola outbreak in history. Brantly and another American healthcare worker are among the more than 1,200 people who have become infected with Ebola in West Africa since March. He is still in the early stages of the Ebola infection but having some daily struggles," David Mcray, a family medicine doctor in Fort Worth, Texas, told AFP by phone.


Tools for planning end of life care are varied, untested: study
29 Jul 2014 at 10:17am
By Kathryn Doyle NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Many tools exist to help introduce people to the subject of advanced care planning, but they vary widely in what they offer and how accessible they are, according to a new research review. ?Decision aids? have proliferated in many areas of medicine but have yet to really take off in the area of advanced directives, though they have a lot of potential to help doctors and patients, said Dr. Benjamin H. Levi of Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Levi was not one of the authors of the new paper in the Annals of Internal Medicine, but he did review it for the journal. Less than half of severely or terminally ill patients have an advance directive in their medical record, according to the study authors, and past research has found doctors are only correct 65 percent of the time in predicting what intensive care a patient would want.

Impax Parkinson's drug future shaky as FDA flags factory issues
29 Jul 2014 at 10:05am
(Reuters) - Impax Laboratories Inc said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration raised concerns about the company's factory in Taiwan, casting in doubt the future of its Parkinson's drug, rytary. Shares of Impax, which makes generics and specialty drugs to treat central nervous system disorders, fell as much as 17 percent on Tuesday, after the regulator listed 10 violations at the plant. The FDA had rejected the company's patented long-acting capsule to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease in January last year, citing lingering manufacturing issues at Impax's Hayward plant in California. After that rejection, the company cut its volumes at the Hayward factory and made its Taiwan plant the primary facility for rytary.


U.S. House Speaker Boehner dismisses talk of impeaching Obama
29 Jul 2014 at 9:55am

By Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans have no plans to begin impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama, House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner declared on Tuesday, putting the blame on Democrats for stirring up pre-midterm election tensions in Washington. Boehner is, however, hoping this week to pass Republican legislation that would authorize a lawsuit, claiming Obama overstepped his powers in ordering unilateral changes to his landmark healthcare law known as "Obamacare." Any such lawsuit could take years to wind through the court system. Meanwhile, Obama is weighing whether to take executive action to scale back deportations of some undocumented residents, a move that would further rachet up tensions with Republicans, who have blocked comprehensive changes to U.S. immigration law, insisting the president take stronger action to stop the flow of illegal migrants. "We have no plans to impeach the president.



Pfizer leaves investors guessing on intentions for Astra
29 Jul 2014 at 9:51am

Pfizer Inc , which in May abandoned its $118 billion bid to buy AstraZeneca Plc , on Tuesday left investors guessing whether it would renew its pursuit of its British rival, but said it was considering other deals. Under UK takeover rules, AstraZeneca can attempt to re-engage with Pfizer in August, and Pfizer can make another run at AstraZeneca in November. Pfizer officially gave up its six-month quest to buy AstraZeneca after its final bid was rejected. Pfizer shares have been flat this year, against an 11 percent gain for the drug sector, due to declining revenue.


NCAA to settle head injury suit with $70 million fund
29 Jul 2014 at 9:30am
By Mary Wisniewski CHICAGO (Reuters) - The NCAA has agreed to settle a head injury lawsuit by providing $70 million for concussion testing and diagnosis of current and former student athletes in a move expected to change the way such injuries are handled at colleges nationwide, according to court documents filed on Tuesday. The class-action agreement, if approved by a federal judge and class members, applies to student athletes in all sports who have played at schools regulated by the National Collegiate Athletic Association at any time in the past until 50 years in the future. The settlement does not include bodily injury claims, which plaintiff's attorney Steve Berman said should be handled on an individual basis. He said the settlement is aimed at protecting student athletes on the field.
