Dr. Safirstein Featured on News 12

Our own Dr. Jordan Safirstein will be featured this weekend on News 12's health segment 12 To Your Health. It will appear on Saturday and Sunday, August 6th and 7th, at 6:30am, 9:30am and 1:30pm.

The host, Dr. Derrick DeSilva will be briefly discussing the benefits of the transradial approach to cardiac catheterization. Cardiac catheterization is a procedure that allows cardiologists to assess and fix blocked coronary arteries. The radial approach uses a small artery in the wrist, and allows patient to sit up immediately after the procedure, as opposed to the standard groin access where patients lie flat up to 6 hours after the procedure.

Numerous studies have shown improved patient comfort as well as a significant decrease in bleeding complications when the radial approach is used.
