James O’Shaughnessy had a #tumor about 8 centimeters that was located in a complex and difficult-to-access space, surrounded by the blood vessels that supply the #brain and nerves that innervate and control the eye, as well as the face. Thanks to Dr. Iloreta and Dr. Genden, they were able to perform a highly complex skull base surgery, and removed the tumor without making any external incisions. Mr. O'Shaughnessy's recovery took about 4 weeks. Now he's back to working, exercising four days a week, and paddle boarding. “This whole journey was a bit of a wakeup call because I was working long hours, six days a week. I certainly look at life differently; I don’t sweat the small stuff anymore. My attitude toward working with stress is much better and traffic jams don’t bother me. I am so much happier with life! I can’t praise or recommend The Mount Sinai Hospital enough! The doctors, nurses, and friendly staff were all amazing! I have a feeling of euphoria and am absolutely grateful to Mount Sinai for it," Mr. O'Shaughnessy states.

It is important for physicians to understand why their patient is taking or wants to take a #supplement, said Aida Vega, MD, Director of Primary Care Associates at Mount Sinai. "If you understand why they're taking it, you can steer them in the proper direction." Watch the video coverage: http://mshs.co/EwBt302HIoY #HealthTips #Wellness #Nutrition

#Botox isn’t just a magic shot to smooth fine lines, and Gina Sam, MD, MPH, Director, Gastrointestinal Motility Center, says it may turn out to be a way to assist extreme-weight-loss patients. “It’s fascinating research, and if the drug does work in #WeightLoss, it would be wonderful — but keep in mind how small the study is.” Learn more: http://mshs.co/Xvds3019NVD #Obesity #Beauty #WomensHealth

"If I'm craving carbs, I swear by one slice of toasted sprouted-grain bread or half an English #muffin with 1/3 mashed #avocado on top and a sprinkle of lemon juice. This is a great combination of #fiber and #healthy fats to help keep me satisfied and my blood sugar levels steady, and the creaminess of the avocado is a great substitution for butter or other spreads high in saturated fat." - Kelly Hogan, MS, RD, CDN, Clinical #Nutrition Coordinator, The #DubinBreast Cancer of the Tisch Cancer Institute at Mount Sinai.

Red bumps, blisters, and pain: These are the symptoms that about one million Americans will suffer this year when they develop the viral infection commonly known as shingles. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 30 percent of people in this country will experience #shingles during their lifetime. But what exactly is shingles, and what can you do to protect yourself? Sam Altstein, DO, Medical Director, Mount Sinai Doctors, weighs in via The Huffington Post blog: http://mshs.co/bjjV304bkuJ #HealthTips #ForYouForLife
