  • Understanding & Treating Heel Pain

    Brandt Dodson, DPM, Deaconess Clinic Podiatry
     
    In my 30 years of practicing podiatry, I’ve cared for thousands of people with heel pain. It’s actually one of the most common complaints I hear in my office. Treating heel pain can help people get back to living a better, more complete life.  
     

  • Super Summer Nutrition

    Debbie Pfeiffer, MS, RD, Deaconess Weight Loss Solutions

    Summer in the Tri-State means an abundance of locally grown produce. As a dietitian, I know the reasons why fruits and vegetables are so good for you, which makes summer the perfect time of year to encourage eating more of them...and to expand the ways people cook and eat in-season produce.
     

  • Lyme Disease

    Terry Gehlhausen, DO, Deaconess Clinic, Oakland City

    Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne illness in the United States.  More than 100,000 cases have been reported since the disease was first discovered in 1982.  The disease is spread by the bite of a deer tick.

  • Keeping Pain in Check

    Brittney Fulcher, NP, Deaconess Comprehensive Pain Centers
     
    Pain will affect everyone at some point in their life. Pain can occur suddenly or can come about slowly and may vary in intensity from mild to more severe pain. The presence of pain is usually an indication that something is wrong within the body. Pain can be acute (temporary)—usually lasting three months or less--or chronic (long term). 

  • The ABCs of Hepatitis

    Rubin Bahuva, MD, Gastroenterologist, Deaconess Clinic
     
    You’ve likely heard of hepatitis, and you may’ve even heard that some types of hepatitis are identified by letters A, B, & C. I’m glad to be writing about this, as so many people don’t know enough about hepatitis. It’s a serious issue, as hepatitis can cause serious illness and severe liver damage. Hepatitis C in particular is of concern, as more than 3 million Americans are infected—mostly “Baby Boomers.” Hepatitis C is actually the most common reason people need a liver transplant.
