Listen: Colon Cancer, Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court discussed on Radiosurgery NY with Dr. Lederman
"A tale of two cities a tale of two women attell to lung cancers. So that's case number one patient number one who came to us after she refused surgery. Elsewhere. And then I want wanna talk about someone else. Very prominent in the news right now in the supreme court Justice, Ruth, Bader Ginsburg, and I've read about her and all my information is what I've read and I understand as you do that. She's an eighty five year old woman, and she had a history of colon cancer and pancreatic cancer in the past. I and as you remember months ago, she fell down in her apartment and broker ribs. So she's probably a little fragile age eighty five, and apparently, although we were told at the time that was everything was fine. Apparently, they found to Najah souls that turned out to be cancer in the long months ago. We weren't told that so remember we're being kind of spoon fed information. That's the beautiful part of this show that we talk about people. We talk about all the important points. You talk about other true points. Route spoon. Feeding anything. So then we're finding out more than a month ago. She had surgery she had a part of her lung removed to nachos removed. And now this is woman for twenty five years. He's been on the supreme court, and I believe she's never missed a day of work and all of a sudden she's missing week after week after week. And of course, we're told that she's recuperating and convalescing and working from home. But we've been the best knowledge no-one in the public has seen her and Tebessa best knowledge, she's not been back at work yet. And so she lost part of her long. And when you lose part of the long, well, number one is open surgery. They have to the surgeon s to open up the body right with us. There's no opening up of the body. There's no cutting bleeding with surgery like the supreme court Justice part of her body was opened up when you moved part of the long the lung collapses you end up of the chest tube the lungs the rest of the lungs after read flay. Right. You have a lot of pain from that. There's IV's there's a risk of bleeding and infection and well recovery, but again when part of your lung is removed, you never really able to recover fully because part of your long gone, right? Part of the long is an bucket in the pathology department in the basement somewhere, and you never have that part of the lung to breathe again, which is so different than radio surgery. With radio surgery. We send invisible beams to attack the cancer and were able to attack the cancer noninvasive Lee without removing part of persons long or pancreas or breast or kidney or prostate or bladder gynecologic or colorectal or Sar. Call Mark kidney cancer. We can do it noninvasive -ly. That's the beautiful part of radio. That's why were I in America with body radio surgery because one particular doctor, yours truly understood the need of non invasive treatment the first patient. I talked to you about had a lung cancer. She went one year without treatment because she did not want part of her lung removed. She did not want to lose respiratory function. She didn't want to have a death. She didn't wanna die the table. She didn't whenever complication of surgery. Whereas the second patient had surgery now more than a month hasn't been back at work hasn't been seen in public. Best of our knowledge. What a difference treatment makes. And yes, I understood full while decades ago the need for other treatments one of the benefits of being trip aboard certified and having a vast experience in the field of cancer. Unlike many doctors at many places throughout the world. And so we were able and eager to I practice body radio. Sergio allowed opening up doors for people like both of these women to be able to treat them if they wish or if they knew with non invasive treatment, and I know many many patients that often surgeons do not talk to patients about all the options. Let's say if a patient goes to see surgeon about their cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, bladder cancer and say well open you up and you'll be in the hospital and probably have pain and probably have convalescents, and you may have dysfunction or disfigurement from that surgery."
