Sarasota Memorial and AHEC would like to call attention to the dangers of using chew, which includes chewing tobacco and snuff, during "Through With Chew Week," Feb. 16 – 22. Chew contains at least 28 chemicals that have been found to cause cancer. Treating oral cancers can involve removal of tissue and bone including the tongue and jaw. Smokeless tobacco can also cause gum disease, heart disease and precancerous mouth sores. On average, chew products deliver a higher dose of nicotine than cigarettes, making the product more habit forming. Want to quit any form of tobacco? AHEC offers FREE help, including nicotine replacement therapy. Call 1-866-534-7909 to learn more.

Although some heart valve disorders can be treated with medication, surgery is often necessary to repair or replace a diseased valve. At Sarasota Memorial Hospital, more than 70 percent of our patients are having those repairs and replacements through minimally invasive procedures – with amazing results. One of those patients is Charlie Ann Syprett, who in 2016 thought she faced open heart surgery to replace her failing valve. But the Sarasota resident and marathon runner was training again just a few weeks after her surgery. SMH Cardiac Surgeon Jonathan Hoffberger, DO, was not only able to repair her valve, but do it with a minimally invasive approach. Visit smhheart.com to learn more.

A Heart Month message from Sarasota Memorial CEO David Verinder, “As the nation observes American Heart Month and takes stock of their heart health during this time, our community and cardiac team has much to be proud of. Our surgical outcomes continue to place us among the nation’s top heart hospitals. Achieving the recent 3-star ratings in all adult cardiac procedures measured by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons is truly the pinnacle of excellence.”
