ALS Awareness: Mayo Clinic Radio

By Joel Streed

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, we'll discuss Aamyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) with Anthony Windebank, M.D. Often called Lou Gehrig's disease, ALS is a type of progressive motor neuron disease that typically strikes at middle to later life and causes nerve cells in the spinal cord, brainstem and brain to gradually break down and die. These nerve cells are responsible for muscle function, so eventually ALS can affect the ability to control the muscles needed to move, speak, eat and breathe. We hope you'll join us to learn more about this debilitating disease and what's happening with the latest in ALS research.

By Dana Sparks

Finding out you need surgery can create anxiety and a long list of questions. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, Saturday, October 4 at 9 a.m. CT, we'll discuss at least five questions to ask your surgeon. Chair of Mayo's surgical quality subcommittee Robert Cima, M.D., will be here to walk us through those questions and more. There are things you can do in advance of any surgery that will make the whole process run more smoothly and maybe even speed your recovery.  We hope you'll join us!

Myth or Fact:  The duration of an operation doesn't matter.
