  • Shaped implants get good reviews from surgeons
    Recently approved implants by Sientra, colloquially known as "gummy bear" implants, are made with a strong, cohesive gel, extending durability and giving them a natural shape, plastic surgeons say. Dr. Malcolm Roth, past president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, says he likes that the implant form is stable and resists ruptures. "Even if you cut this implant, it's still going to maintain its shape," said plastic surgeon Kaveh Alizadeh. WWL-TV (New Orleans) (1/21) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story

  • Physicians may be targets of social media fraud, experts say
    As the online social space grows, physicians can be targets for identity theft, misrepresentation and fraud, experts say. Physicians have had blog posts copied, and competitors posing as dissatisfied patients have posted negative reviews. Physicians can protect themselves by monitoring and managing their online profiles, using privacy tools and not responding to posts that seem bogus, experts say.

  • USPSTF: Docs should screen female patients for domestic violence
    The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has called on primary care physicians to screen all women of childbearing age for indications of domestic violence and make treatment referrals if needed. Screening can identify domestic violence in 62% to 96% of cases, and data show women who are screened are more apt to discuss the issue with their doctors. The recommendations appear in the Annals of Internal Medicine. HealthDay News (1/21) LinkedInFacebookTwitterGoogle+Email this Story
