>> 70 years, pacemaker have helped people hearts. brand now technology and here to show it off is kr dr. laer chinitz. joining him is his patient, janet mer sell. >> hi, good morning. >> doc, let's get into this. can you tell exactly what happens when your heart slows down? >> so if the patient has an abnormally slow heart both, it's not meeting the demands of the
blood. so the common symptoms are fatigue, exercise intolerance, light headness. but when it gets profound, patients can pass out, and pass out repeatedly. unfortunately we have no other types of treatments, there are no medications that can effectively treat these slow heart beats. so we rely on pacemakers. they've been around for a long time and been effective, but the new lead less pacemaker is a major >> this is one of the treatments that's available now to help deal with what could be a life-threatening situation. >> that's correct. very recently the fda approved the micro pacemaker. so it is the only approved lead less pacemaker in the country. it's also the smallest pacemaker in the world and it really does help many, many patients. >> we're looking at an image of it now and it is the size of a
condition, brady card yeah. what have the symptoms been like. >> pretty much my whole life until i was a child and until i received the pacemaker. i was the one fainting all thes time. i didn't experience too many dizzy spells or fatigue, just straight up fainting. that was pretty debilitating for regular life. that sort of disappeared, it all disappeared when i got the pacemaker. >> you said it disappeared how last your life changed? are you able to do things you weren't used to? >> yes, it's changed a lot. the struggle to just sort of get through the day without passing out or leaving the room or, you know, i've crashed my car multiple times. that sort of thing, it was gone, it's gone. >> doctor, can you really discuss -- you mentioned it's fda-approved. can you discuss your involvement with the trial which led to in an approval.
center but we were part of a global trial that involved over 50 centers around the world getting patients like janet, following very closely for the safety and efficacy of the lead less pacemaker and we were pleased that the results were so positive. the safety profile was excellent and that led to pretty rapid approval by the fda. it certainly did take a couple of years but it was well worth the >> /* waef /* /* w we've heard how its helped janet. what has been your involvement. >> it's been satisfying to treat patients and alleviate their symptoms in a safe and minimally invasive manner. we're excited about it to extend it to to a larger patient population. it's a safe intervention.
watching at home who may be searching for a diagnosis for their condition or any condition that they may be facing, what is something you guys would like to share with them on how to get help. >> i think janet's story is very compelling. it took her a long time for physicians to understand what was going on with her, to make an appropriate diagnosis. you need to be with a physician who understand the types interventions that are available, especially the new technology. i think our major message is you need to talk to the doctors, not let anybody ignore your symptoms and if you want additional information, there are good website, such as the one at the nyu mel center. that website is www.nyulangone.org. great place for both physicians and patients.
about this revolutionary technology. thank you. >> thank you. >> thanks for having us. >> like we mentioned, it's the world smallest pacemaker and fda approved. you herd heard the website, it's on your screen. jj, over to you. >> motorcycle micah -- micah, thank you. >> summer is the great time to complete a marathon. completed one, you know it is so previously warding in the end. our next guests say it's a lot like planning for retirement. antibiotic ashton and nick strobelt are with us today. they are retirement professionals and radio show hosts. >> first of all, we start with the retirement brother being on time, i got caught in traffic, i can't make it on time.
>> what happened to nick today? you're usually on the couch together. >> we don't like to snuggle that close to him, so i said hang out on i215. it's just you and i, you're stuck with me. >> this is a tremendous advantage for you! >> it is. >> because now you get all the credit for explaining to me how this all works. >> please, i truly do need to be more active about planning my retirement. >> three or four minutes should retirement plan. >> help me. >> only 50% of americans right now have one penny saved for retirement >> 50% of americans -- >> 50% of americans have one penny or more saved. half of americans have nothing saved for retirement. that's why we talk about planning for a marathon, we were talking about before the segment about a marathon, my wife has got me training for a marathon right now. >> no kidding. >> awful. >> it's what she wanted for her
run a marathon for me in october. >> i said can i buy you a villa in france, do something small for you? now we're getting up every morning 5:30, dark, miles and miles, 15 mile run on saturday. it's a joke. >> she is a smart woman. >> except that guy show married thing, except for that! >> with this training you're doing, like this 15-mile race, i know that when i've run a lot of 10-k's, when you're doing a lot of running you need to think about your pacing. is that how aplanning for retirement is like. >> yes, because you make a decision and sign u race. that's the first thing, go online and call the people, say i'm going to sign up. >> that's the same thing with retirement, you make a physical decision, i'm going to start contributing to a plan for retirement, i'm going to
a roth ira. you first make the choice to do it, the same way you would to start a race. then just like -- you start with something small, i'm going to cut out sugar this week or dairy or when you're running a marathon, you say this week i've got to start by running two miles. i've got to get up to training and run 15 miles saturday, like this saturday, but it didn't start that way, would i need the pacemaker from thear segment. this is the point, you have to start and start slow and what you realize is as you accelerate, as you get longer distances as you contribute more money, all of a sawed sudden the goal becomes attainable. you can actually retire. >> i love this analogy, because i understand it, that a lot of people think, i've got to work this all out, i should go in next week, get my whole retirement plan laid out, i should, i should, and i don't >> and that's why people just
but consider this, what happens if these half of americans never do plan for row toirment? >> what does happen. >> it monies they're stuck on the government, only having social security, over the next 20 years the cost of healthcare is scheduled to go up five and a half% per year. the typical cd is paying 1%. if you're only earning 1%, and the cost of healthcare is going quickly you're not earning enough to keep up with the most basic retirement needs like healthcare. if you're 65 years old over the next 20 years you'll spend $220,000 just in healthcare alone. where are you getting this money? and what is your plan if you're 50 years old or 45 years old, that's where we come in. don't get overwhelmed, don't troy to do this all in one visit. don't say you've got to have
let's sign up and start making some plan, even the smallest step towards it right now is a good step because you're making a choice to sign up for that race. >> you just demystified it for me. >> i understand. just make the first step. you mentioned healthcare. i know that's a huge, huge topic, something that becomes extremely important, if not the most important thing as we get older. what are some other bumps in the road or things that we can plan for. >> looking for income, two is taxes, understand what kind of tax situation we're going to have when we retire, will we have tax-free income, net benefit after the social security, hopefully pension, rent income. healthcare will be an issue and also estate planning. where do you want things to go
trusts. all of that deals with retirement planning, we deal with all of that at our office. >> so you can take a full look. >> and again, not in an overwhelming way, but take one piece at a time, see where you're at and how to get you from where you're at to where you want to be. >> one thing i love about you guys is you're so open. you actually allow people to email you with questions. >> yes, we can respond to most questions about -- if somebody is not ready sit down for a consultation -- of course we love to have people come in and sit down and show us what they've accomplished so far. even to answer a simple question, it's easy for us to do on email. >> thank you so much for joining us today! solo! it was great. >> if you'd like a coach in the race to retirement, give abe and

over the face? those are fat pads. there are seven individual fat pads on the face and as we age they move south or -- the hollowness under the a, flattening of the cheek itself. jj, say you came into my office -- >> this is ter terribly unfair. >> so if you came in my jj, i would sit you down in my chair, hand you a mirror and say jj, tell me what's bugging you today. 95% of the people who sit down in our chairs tell us, you know, i just feel so tired. i look exhausted. some people tell me i look angry. that's not how i feel, that's not who i am. i don't look as well as i feel. and they just can't put their finger on it.
it, that's when i grab that fat pad graphic and show them this is what's happening to your face. with you've lost volume and we need to pump it back in. >> i'm curious, since you're very knowledgeable about this, what areas of the face lose fat first. >> great question. what we see is the one right under the eye, this fat pad that puffs up here. as soon as that starts to go, that's when people start saying, i look so tired, i exhausted. that's the first fat pad to go and that is what we're here to talk about today, treating that area. >> what treatment options are available? because i saw that graphic. my age is going up there, i'm going to need this, too. >> we're all going to need it. it's the most under diagnosed area in facial's thet i cans. i brought jeff ngyuen loop, he's a physician's assistant and he
at our -- he's like the master of this procedure at our business. i'm going to let him take it away, tell you what we use, what procedures. >> regarding the volume loss under the eyes. there's surgery, falt transfer, but obviously those are a lot more complicated. what we do is place a dermo under the ey it takes 15 minutes and relatively painless, you just look a lot more rejuv nated, more refreshed and like bernie said, 10 or 15 years younger. >> we have some video of one of the treatments. let's take a look at that video. if you do not like needles -- >> we should warm people, because i have a hard time watching needles. >> the cool thing is is this is not a needle.
a canula. it's flexible tube. as that goes into the eye area, it doesn't cut or tear any of the blood vessels. this is the safest, newest procedure on the market right now. make two incisions -- that's before, linda, our gorgeous model before we did the procedure. i think we ha too. >> oh, wow, she is in studio -- look at that! >> how was the procedure. >> it was so simple and so easy. like bernie said, i was talking to him one day and i'm a new owner of a restaurant and inside i feel excited and energetic but outside i look so tired and old. so immediately bernie said, let's go see jeff, i know what
it was over. >> linda, you truly look exceptional. >> isn't that beautiful. >> i want to know, i want you to be honest, was it painful? >> not at all. it was quick and easy and i felt so comfortable there with jeff and bernie and we actually were laughing throughout the procedure because -- >> we were having a ball. >> -- it was not at all painful. >> you take that fear away because it's not a needle. >> exactly. what we do is make injection sites right here on the cheek. we go into all those areas that you need filler and it doesn't cut or tear any of the blood vessels. the older procedure was a needle, multiple puncture into this eye area. we don't want to do that anymore because this canula method is so much safer. >> with that there's an amazing special for viewers at home.
