Mayo Clinic Radio: Quality Health Care/Enlarged Prostate/Thumb Arthritis
Quality health care is something we all want. But what does it mean ... and how can we find it? This week on Mayo Clinic Radio, endocrinologist Dr. Victor Montori outlines the criteria you can use in choosing a quality provider. Also on the program, one of the most common problems men have as they age is an enlarged prostate gland - urologist Dr. Amy Krambeck explains how an enlarged prostate, also called benign prostatic hyperplasia, is diagnosed and treated; and severe pain, swelling and decreased range of motion in your thumb may be a sign of arthritis - orthopedic surgeon Dr. Sanjeev Kakar discusses what can be done to treat thumb arthritis.
Myth or Matter-of-Fact: The number of a particular procedure done each year by a provider can be one indicator of the quality.
