This week: weight loss surgery, classic heart drugs and transgender health care

Dec 5, 2018

Dr. Flavia Soto discusses what to expect if you’re considering surgery to lose weight. In this week’s “HealthLink on Air,” she explains the different types of surgery available, such as gastric bypass and gastric sleeve, and which patients have the best chance of success.

Also this week, cardiologist and historian Howard Smulyan talks about five classic cardiac drugs: aspirin, atropine, digitalis, nitroglycerin and quinidine. And, public health scholar Kellan Baker discusses transgender health issues.
