Exploring Alternatives to Shoulder Replacement Surgery – with Wright Medical

Got shoulder pain? Join the club! It’s estimated that nearly 100 million Americans suffer from some sort of shoulder issue, and when they do, shoulder replacement surgery is often the only effective recourse. Traditional shoulder replacement surgery utilizes so much of the humeral canal (the critical portion of the shoulder that’s lost during traditional procedures), that it may limit many patient’s surgical options for future procedures later in life – particularly younger patients. That is, until now.  On this episode of Access Health, learn about a shoulder arthroplasty procedure called the SIMPLICITI™ Shoulder System. It is the first FDA-cleared canal-sparing system designed to reduce pain and potentially decrease surgical time, and potential complications, while preserving bone for the future. To learn more about the benefits and risks of this procedure, which can be discussed with your healthcare provider, please go to

Protecting Children from Food Allergies – with the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America

As the number of children with food allergies continues to rise, Michele Cassalia, of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, joins Access Health to emphasize the importance of having a plan in place. She’ll discuss food allergy triggers, symptoms and the life-saving steps that should be your first line of defense.
