Dr. Paramjit "Romi" Chopra, M.D., the Founder and CEO of the Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Therapies (MIMIT) that combines state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgeries with a holistic eastern medicine to treat uterine fibroids, peripheral arterial disease, varicose veins, among many other conditions joins eHealth Radio and the Health News & Radiology Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Paramjit "Romi" Chopra discuss the following:

  1. Tell me about your upbringing: How was it growing up in India and transitioning into being a physician in the US?
  2. What motivated you to focus on interventional radiology? What about women's health?
  3. You focus heavily on uterine fibroids: What are some common misconceptions about fibroids? Why is uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) the most effective treatment?
  4. What are other common conditions best treated by minimally invasive surgeries?
  5. How do you incorporate eastern holistic healing into traditional western medicine?

 

Dr. Paramjit “Romi” Chopra, M.D. is an interventional radiologist with over 30 years’ experience in the field of interventional radiology and endovascular therapy. The standards for his daily work were set after completing his medical studies and training in Mumbai, India, followed by his fellowship and residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in the US. After working extensively in academia and research, Dr. Chopra became one of the youngest heads of an interventional radiology department in the US. Eager to share his experience, he placed great emphasis on training and introduced a wide range of education and research programs for students, colleagues, and residents. At the same time, however, he was committed to keeping the focus firmly on patient needs at all time.

Dr. Chopra opened the Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Therapies (MIMIT) in 2004. As an interventional radiology and endovascular therapy practice, MIMIT specializes in minimally invasive treatments for arterial disease such as peripheral artery disease (PAD), uterine fibroid disease (UFE), venous disease and musculoskeletal disease (spine interventions).

Lending his eastern roots and extensive western experience Dr. Chopra unifies the best of both worlds. His in-depth understanding of complex patient conditions is backed by state-of-the-art treatment therapies, enabling him to deliver exceptional patient care of the highest quality.

Dr. Chopra believes the path to long-term success lies in treating patients’ spirit, mind and body – not just their medical conditions. His institute has given him the opportunity to create a well-thought-out environment where patients and their families can feel calm, get the information they need and be treated with cutting-edge healthcare technologies.

Dr. Anuj Tolia, a radiologist at Montclair Radiology, with 5 imaging facilities in New Jersey joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Heart Health Channels to discuss the launching of a new model that is ground breaking. February is National Heart Month, and what better way to celebrate and safeguard our hearts than to offer free screening for first responders including police, fire and EMTs - which is exactly what Dr. Tolia and Montcliar Radiology is doing with "Docs and Cops".

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Anuj Tolia discuss the following:

  1. Can you describe in your own words how the Calcium Scoring works?
  2. Should people with a family history of heart attacks, stroke and other conditions consider doing this scan?
  3. Research shows stress is a killer - so does it make sense to recommend this to people who are in high stress careers, such as EMT staff, ER staff, Police, fire fighters, etc?
  4. What about radiation - is this high or low - and what does that mean?
  5. Do you need a prescription?
  6. Cost is inexpensive, correct? I heard it was around $99.

 

Dr. Anuj J. Tolia received his BS at The Wharton School of Business and his Doctor of Medicine degree from New York University School of Medicine where he was elected to the Medical Honor Society, Alpha Omega Alpha. After completing an internship in Internal Medicine at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, Dr. Tolia completed a residency in Diagnostic Radiology at New York University. Dr. Tolia received the Resident Research Scholarship Award presented by The Radiologic Society of North America.

Following his formal training at New York University Medical Center, Dr. Tolia completed a fellowship in Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Neuroradiology, Musculoskeletal Radiology and Body/Breast Imaging at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. Upon completing his fellowship, Dr. Tolia joined the staffs of Montclair Radiology and Chilton Memorial Hospital.

Fibroids Awareness: Non-invasive Treatment Options

April 27, 2017

Dr. Suzanne LeBlang, Chief Medical Officer at the Focused Ultrasound Foundation and also a Radiologist at UNIVERSITY MRI in Boca Raton, Florida joins eHealth Radio and the Female Health & Health News Channels. Suzanne is here to talk about Fibroids Awareness Week, and what women should know about new advances in treatment for this condition.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Suzanne LeBlang discuss the following:

  • Can you explain to our audience: what are uterine fibroids?
  • How common are fibroids, and what are the symptoms?
  • How do fibroids affect a woman’s fertility?
  • What are the most common treatments for fibroids, and what are the pros/cons of each?
  • Are there any new, less-invasive treatments that help women preserve their fertility options?

 

Suzanne LeBlang, MD, is a neuroradiologist and an early adopter of MR-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) who has used the technology to treat patients for more than 10 years. She is based in Boca Raton, Florida and is affiliated with multiple hospitals in the area, including JFK Medical Center and West Boca Medical Center. She received her medical degree from University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and has been in practice for more than 20 years. Dr. LeBlang is one of 85 doctors at JFK Medical Center and one of 26 at West Boca Medical Center who specialize in Radiology.

As the Chief Medical Officer at the Focused Ultrasound Foundation, Dr. LeBlang organizes working groups to devise clinical protocols, serve as a liaison to the clinical research community, and present information on MRgFUS at medical conferences.

Dr. LeBlang’s research, “Leiomyoma Shrinkage After MR-Guided Focused Ultrasound Treatment: Report of 80 Patients,” published in Radiology in 2010, was one of the first papers to document that a more extensive nonperfused volume after an MRgFUS treatment resulted in greater fibroid shrinkage. She has also participated in several worldwide focused ultrasound clinical trials for fibroids and a clinical trial for patients with painful bone metastases.

Dr. LeBlang serves on the faculty at the University of Miami Medical School where she is the Radiology Clinical Coordinator for the 3rd year M.D./M.P.H. students, and she teaches at the Florida Atlantic University Schmidt College of Medicine. She has been visiting faculty at several institutions including Harvard University and Ohio State University.
