A new episode of What's Up, Doc? airs live every Thursday morning at 8:35 on 1440 WROK. 

What's Up, Doc? is a weekly health segment on WROK sponsored by MercyHealth. Each week they highlight a different doctor/healthcare professional to come on our show and talk to us about their specialty. It has turned into one of our favorite segments. All of our doctors have exhibited a "human" side that people don't always get to see with their physicians. We encourage you to check out some of our past episodes here. We've done about 30 of these segments highlighting everything from Lyme disease to hernia repair to finding a health care plan and everything else in between. We've learned a lot and hope you can too.

So the title of this week's episode is "Fibroid Emobilztion." It's not the most exciting topic and to be honest with you, I had no idea what it meant when I first read it. Then I looked it up and was somehow even more bored AND confused.

Then Dr. Tannenbaum came on and knocked it out of the park as one of the best and most interesting guests we've had in our now almost year run of What's Up, Doc? episodes.

It turns out that he's basically sending tiny tubes into people's bodies and microtargeting cancer cells, blood vessels, and other minuscule items. It is fascinating and Dr. Tannenbaum is just fun to talk to.

He also, oddly, seemed to have a pretty good time as well.

We thank Dr. Tannenbaum for his time and look forward to him returning in the future.
