- The Doctor and The Dame
If you look up engaged patient in the dictionary, you’re likely to see a picture of 84-year-old Dorothy Nocita — self-proclaimed Dame Dorothy. As someone who takes personal responsibility for her health care needs and works toward being the healthiest she can be, she embodies the meaning of the term.
“I really feel that my responsibility is to be an advocate for my health,” the Palm Springs resident and retired reference librarian says. “My goal is to be the best I can be for as long as possible. I owe it to my husband and my children.
“I’m almost missionary-like when it comes to the importance of people involving themselves in wellness, and not putting up with conventional medicine that doesn’t agree with their needs,” she continues. “That’s why I think the 365 program is brilliant.” click for more
- Eisenhower Wound Care Center A Dynamic, Comprehensive Approach to Healing
Imagine having a wound that won’t heal for months, even years. For an estimated three to five million Americans every year, that’s a reality. And it often means a life of chronic pain, limited mobility and untold distress.
The good news, however, is that if you or someone you know has a wound that isn’t healing, expert care is available.
The Eisenhower Wound Care Center not only provides the most advanced therapies available for healing, but its team of physicians, nurses and other health care professionals also address the underlying cause of the wound to prevent it from recurring. The Center is the only hospital-based, physician-directed facility of its kind in the valley. click for more
- Eisenhower Resident Receives International Award Michael Bogoyevac, MD, helped diagnose and treat a wide range of patient conditions in his first year as a Family Medicine Resident Associate Physician at Eisenhower’s Center for Family Medicine in La Quinta. One patient case, however, was so rare that Dr. Bogoyevac’s comprehensive approach led to an impressive third place award at the Multidisciplinary European Endovascular Therapy (MEET) Congress in Nice, France this summer.
The case involved a 50-year-old male who presented at the Center with an inflammation of the scalp. Through a careful physical examination, Dr. Bogoyevac, with attending physician Vanessa Ho, MD, discovered a pulsating mass on the right back side of the patient’s head. A CT scan confirmed the diagnosis of a true, and very rare, fusiform occipital artery aneurysm. Typically, the treatment of occipital artery aneurysms involves invasive surgical resection, and a four-to-five day stay in the hospital. Dr. Bogoyevac worked directly with Board Certified Interventional Neuroradiologist Brian Herman, MD, on a minimally invasive approach via endovascular transcatheter embolization. click for more
