Mayo Clinic Radio: Precision Medicine/Weight-Loss Surgery/Google

By Richard Dietman

Precision medicine ... also called individualized medicine ... got special attention recently when President Obama announced a Precision Medicine Initiative and called for the creation of a national biobank. On this week's program, Dr. Keith Stewart, director of the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine, discusses the biobank and what it might mean for the future of health care. Also on the program, Mayo Clinic psychologist Dr. Karen Grothe explains the importance of a psychological evaluation when planning weight-loss surgery. And preventive medicine specialist Dr. Phil Hagen talks about how Mayo Clinic and Google have teamed up to increase the odds of finding realiable health information on the Web.

Myth or Matter-of-Fact: Precision medicine can help predict diseases you're likely to get.

Mayo Clinic Radio: Managing Prescriptions/Endometrial Cancer Test/Tinnitus

By Richard Dietman

Taking a prescription drug can be confusing. And taking several medications ... some before breakfast and others just before bed ... can multiply the challenges. On this week's Mayo Clinic Radio, pharmacist Jeremy Anderson answers common questions about managing your prescriptions. Also on the program, gynecologic oncologist Dr. Jamie Bakkum-Gamez talks about a new screening test for endometrial cancer that uses tampons. And we'll discuss ringing in your ears, known as tinnitus (TIN-ih-tus), with Mayo Clinic audiologist Dr. Janalene Niichel.

Myth or Matter-of-Fact: If you miss a daily dose of medication, it's usually OK to take two doses the next day to make up for it.

Mayo Clinic Radio: e-Patient Dave/Bionic Eye

By Richard Dietman

In the past, in even the best of doctor-patient relationships, it was usually the doctor who made the final decision about treatment. Now that's changing. On this week's program, we explore "participatory medicine" with patient-engagement advocate Dave deBronkhart, Jr., better known to his blog followers as e-Patient Dave. Also on the program, Mayo Clinic ophthalmologist Dr. Raymond Iezzi, Jr., talks about the bionic eye, an implant that brings sight to people with serious vision impairment.

Myth or Matter-of-Fact: Patient engagement means more time spent in your doctor's office, leading to higher health care costs.
