Tony Dorsett Dealing With Devastating Diagnosis
Former Hopewell High School, University of Pittsburgh and Dallas Cowboys standout Tony Dorsett announced he has been diagnosed with CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy), a progressive degenerative brain disease often found in athletes. Dorsett said he often feels like he doesn't recognize himself, and that fits with the symptoms described by Allegheny Health Network neurosurgeon Dr. Jack Wilberger to WPXI-TV: memory loss, short temper, depression and even thoughts of suicide. Dr. Wilberger said there is currently no way to stop the progression of CTE, but earlier diagnosis can help patients deal with symptoms.

"Seeds" Help Breast Surgeons Zero in on Cancer
Breast surgeons at Allegheny Health Network are using radioactive seeds to help them pinpoint the locations of small tumors, and remove them more precisely and efficiently. Dr. Kathleen Erb told KDKA-TV she actually uses a Geiger counter in surgery to show her the tumor's exact location. It's a big improvement over the old method where a radiologists would insert wires in the breast to mark the spot for the surgeon. Patient Marlene Tucker, who had an early-stage tumor removed by Dr. Erb, said the surgery prep was pain and hassle-free.

Making Strides with Dystonia
West Virginia teen Amanda Bell underwent deep brain stimulation surgery at Allegheny General Hospital with hopes of controlling the symptoms of dystonia—a disorder in which the brain sends impulses to muscles that make them contract painfully and intensely. It's affected her gait, ability to hold and maneuver objects and even her speech. Allegheny Health Network's Dr. Donald Whiting explains the procedure and how it's already helping Amanda to stand and walk straighter, with hope for continued improvements as electrical impulses to her brain are adjusted in the coming months.

Can your bones predict the weather?
Patients tell Allegheny Health Network rheumatologist Dr. Fotios Koumpouras all the time: They know when it's going to rain or turn cold, because they can feel it in their bones. KDKA-TV reports that according to a new study, this feeling may have some basis in fact. The theory is that when barometric pressure falls, the pressure inside the joints changes as well.

Allegheny Health Network Speeding Treatment Time for Heart Attack Victims
For years, door-to-balloon time - the time it takes from when a heart attack patient arrives at the hospital to the insertion of a life-saving stent -- has been the standard for speedy care. Now research is questioning whether the emphasis on door-to-balloon time is enough. With its new First Contact initiative Allegheny Health Network aims to speed treatment even further by emphasizing the time from a patient's first contact with emergency services personnel to the time of stent insertion. The initiative empowers EMS to diagnose a heart attack at the scene, and set the hospital's cardiac catheterization team in motion. A Ross/West View EMS first responder spoke to KDKA-TV about a positive experience, and results, from First Contact.
