Meet Madiley Broz, PSYD, Neuropsychologist, Memorial Neuroscience Institute
Helping patients and their families through trying situations is part of the everyday extraordinary care provided at Memorial Neuroscience Institute. Madiley Broz, PSYD, Neuropsychologist, recalls one young boy who suffered a traumatic brain injury so severe, she was unsure if they were going to see much cognitive recovery. The multidisciplinary team at Memorial Neuroscience Institute used familiar music and pictures as neuro cognitive stimulation, and soon the patient was walking and talking. Today he functions normally and independently. It’s the type of reward Dr. Broz calls “indescribable.” See more of Dr. Broz’s story at MemorialNeuroscience.com.

Epilepsy Surgery: Nicholas' Memorial Journey
Physicians at Memorial Neuroscience Institute in Hollywood recently performed their first craniotomy, a two-pronged surgery to remove a portion of the brain causing seizures. The patient, Nicholas, had suffered from epileptic seizures for more than decade and had gone through more than ten medications with little results. Given the choice of receiving Vagus Nerve Stimulation therapy, a pacemaker-like device that sends signals to the brain via the vagus nerve, or the craniotomy, Nicholas went with the latter. The 33-year-old, who also has a congenital heart defect and a pacemaker, didn’t want any more devices put in his body. “It’s wonderful that I’m not going to have a seizure again,” Fotopoulos said. “I have a new chance in life.” Prior to the surgery, he had lost jobs and the ability to drive his car due to his seizures, in which he would zone out for a brief period of time, twitch and have violent movements if the events lasted long enough. The surgery, he added, has given him the opportunity to start fresh. He’s now engaged and wants to have kids. “In the whole West Palm, Broward and north Miami-Dade County, there’s no single advanced epilepsy center that is capable of providing basic services for patients with epilepsy,” said Dr. Tarek Zakaria, a neurologist at Memorial Healthcare System who was formerly with the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. “Most of these patients will have to go somewhere else to have very basic epilepsy workups and treatment.”

Lebron James' heat cramp explained and tips on how to prevent cramps
Lebron James left the game during the Heat vs. Spurs NBA Finals after muscle cramp took over his body. Memorial Fitness Center's Rob Herzog explains what may have happened to LeBron and how you can prevent cramps from happening. Muscle cramps Definition Muscle cramps are when a muscle gets tight (contracts) without you trying to do so. The muscle gets tight and does not relax. Cramps may involve all or part of one or more muscles. The most commonly involved muscle groups are: Back of the lower leg/calf Back of the thigh (hamstrings) Front of the thigh (quadriceps) Cramps in the feet, hands, arms, abdomen, and along the rib cage are also very common. Muscle cramps are common and may be stopped by stretching the muscle. The cramping muscle may feel hard or bulging. Alternative Names Cramps - muscle Considerations Muscle spasms are different than muscle twitches, which are covered in a separate article. Causes Muscle cramps are common and often occur when a muscle is overused or injured. Working out when you haven't had enough fluids (dehydration) or when you have low levels of minerals such as potassium or calcium can also make you more likely to have a muscle spasm. Muscle cramps can occur while you play tennis or golf, bowl, swim, or do any other exercise. They can also be triggered by: Alcoholism Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) Kidney failure Medications Menstruation Pregnancy Home Care If you have a muscle cramp, stop your activity and try stretching and massaging the muscle. Heat will relax the muscle when the spasm begins, but ice may be helpful when the pain has improved. If the muscle is still sore, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications can help with pain. If the muscle cramps are severe, your health care provider can prescribe other medicines. The most common cause of muscle cramps during sports activity is not getting enough fluids. Often, drinking water will ease the cramping. However, water alone doesn't always help. Salt tablets or sports drinks, which also replenish lost minerals, can be helpful. Other tips for relieving muscle cramps: Change your workouts so that you are exercising within your ability. Drink plenty of fluids while exercising and increase your potassium intake (orange juice and bananas are great sources of potassium). Stretch to improve flexibility. When to Contact a Medical Professional Call your doctor or nurse if your muscle cramps: Are severe Do not go away with simple stretching Keep coming back Last a long time What to Expect at Your Office Visit Your doctor or nurse will examine you and ask questions about your symptoms and medical history, such as: When did the spasms first begin? How long do they last? How often do you experience muscle spasms? What muscles are affected? Is it always the same location? Are you pregnant? Have you been vomiting, had diarrhea, excessive sweating, excessive urine volume, or any other possible cause of dehydration? What medications do you take? Have you been exercising heavily? Have you been drinking alcohol heavily? Blood tests may be done to check for the following: Calcium, potassium, or magnesium metabolism Kidney function Thyroid function Pain medicines may be prescribed.

Memorial Hospital West Installs NicView Cameras In Nurseries Connecting Families Worldwide
Tiny cameras placed at the beds located in the Newborn Nurseries and Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Memorial Hospital West’s Family Birthplace are bringing instant connections among families worldwide through a secured web based system that can be accessed through various electronic devices. The secured camera system, known as NicView, allows families of newborn babies born through surgical births to watch their infants just moments after birth while mom is in recovery. The system allows parents to log in from home computers, tablets, and smartphones and watch a live video stream projected from a camera above the baby's bed. The live feeds have no sound and are used on a secure internet line that is designed to preclude recording by a parent or the hospital. Parents receive a password to log onto the system, which can be passed to other family members and friends helping families bond and spread their newborn news from the nurseries to families all around the world. “The installation of these cameras enhances patient- and family-centered care that is so vital at Memorial Healthcare System,” said Mary Bridget Roberts Ed.D. ARNP, NE-BC, Director of Nursing, Memorial Hospital West Family Birthplace. “Patients and families are thrilled to have the ability to see their newest family member via a password protected system that allows parents and extended family members 24/7 access to the new bundle of joy.” Since the installation of NicView on February 23, families have shared their baby’s video streams with families and friends in more than 10 different countries and over 15 states around the nation. More than 575 users have logged into the system by parents and families. The first installation of the NICview Cameras has been a successful program supported by Memorial Foundation. Memorial Healthcare System (MHS) is one of the largest public healthcare systems in the country and a national leader in quality care and patient satisfaction. Its facilities include Memorial Regional Hospital, Memorial Regional Hospital South, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Memorial Hospital West, Memorial Hospital Miramar, Memorial Hospital Pembroke and Memorial Manor nursing home. MHS has been recognized as one of Modern Healthcare magazine’s “Best Places to Work in Healthcare,” Florida Trend’s “Florida’s Best Companies to Work For,” and Becker’s Hospital Review’s “150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare.”

While developing the program, Dr. Soloway will serve as a resource to other community urologists, providing second opinions regarding management and alternatives for the most common urologic cancers. "I'm eager to continue my career at Memorial Cancer Institute," said Dr. Soloway, who has made significant contributions to the understanding and treatment of prostate, bladder and kidney cancer over a 40-year career. "I look forward to collaborating with community physicians and other medical staff at Memorial to provide patients with continuity of care and a full spectrum of urologic cancer care."

Sleeve Gastrectomy Demonstration: Memorial Weight-Loss Surgery Program
Sleeve Gastrectomy is demonstrated by Dr. Brett Cohen of the Memorial Weight-Loss Program. The sleeve gastrectomy is a weight-loss procedure that is particularly well suited to patients who have high surgical risk because of extreme obesity or associated medical conditions. It typically requires about a one-night hospital stay. The procedure involves removing about 75 percent of the stomach, leaving behind a "banana shaped" sleeve of stomach. This remaining portion of stomach restricts the amount of food that a patient can eat and leads to significant weight loss. There is no cutting or rerouting of the small intestines. The part of the stomach that is removed normally secretes a hormone that is responsible for appetite and hunger. Without it, people don't feel the need to eat as often as they did before, which contributes to their weight loss. For more information, visit www.mhs.net/weightloss This video shows selected portions of surgery that did not have complications. The practice of medicine is not an exact science and serious, even life threatening complications may occur. No guarantee or assurance can be made about the final results of this surgery.

Music Therapy Program - Memorial Rehabilitation Institute
Biomedical researchers have concluded that music is a highly structured auditory language involving complex perception, cognition and motor control in the brain. Therefore, it can be used effectively to retrain and re-educate the injured brain. Music therapy sessions at Memorial Rehabilitation Institute incorporate a variety of instruments, singing and/or listening. Alan Novick, MD, Medical Director, Memorial Rehabilitation Institute, says music therapy is very helpful, particularly with some stroke victims, or those who have suffered a brain injury. The use of music therapy has increased dramatically in recent years. Over the past two decades, new brain imaging and electrical recording technologies have allowed medical professionals to watch the human brain while people perform complex cognition and motor tasks. This research has shown the areas of the brain involved in music are also active in processing: Language Auditory perception Attention Memory Executive control Motor control Music can effectively access and activate these systems. Movement and muscle control improvement can be achieved through music therapy. Therapists work with patients to follow a steady beat and work with them on recognition of musical timing and rhythmic patterns. Activities often include playing a drum to boost range of motion in the upper extremities, exercising to upbeat music to build strength and stamina, or the use of music to complement a normal walking pattern to improve mobility.
