Nick Sestito has worked in the Plant Operations department at Rome
Memorial Hospital for 20 years. His work requires a lot of climbing
ladders and squatting down to make repairs to everything from air
conditioner units to mechanical hospital beds, but pain in his left knee
had gotten so bad he had difficulty doing his job. Last October, Nick
more than willingly became an occupant of one of those hospital beds
when he had a total knee replacement performed by Dr. Ninos Oda at Rome

Preventing Breast Cancer
Although there are many risk factors that may increase your chance of developing breast cancer, research suggests that there are lifestyle changes you can make to reduce that risk. Be physically active and keep your weight under control. Eat a healthy diet including vegetables, fruits, poultry, fish, and low-fat dairy products. If you drink alcohol, limit how much you drink. Learn more about risk factors at the National Cancer Institute.
And remember to schedule your mammogram. Early detection saves lives.
