  • Innovations For Minimally Invasive Surgery – with Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES)

Undergoing surgery is never easy. However, it doesn’t have to be as painful and take as long to recover as you might think. Dr. Archana Ramaswamy, Staff Surgeon Minneapolis VA Hospital, Associate Professor of Surgery University of Minnesota, joins the show to discuss Minimally Invasive Surgery, and will elaborate on the three main techniques: laparoscopy, which is done through small incisions; endoscopic which use cameras via the mouth or other natural orifices; and Robotic surgery which gives a doctor a 3-D view of the surgical site. The benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) include shorter hospital stays (reduced risk of infections, return to work sooner), decreased pain, more rapid recovery and it can be less costly than traditional surgery. Dr. Ramaswamy will also discuss the “Healthy Sooner” initiative aimed at raising awareness on the benefits of MIS.

  • Maximize the Value of Your Life Insurance – with GWG Life, LLC

Are you looking for a powerful wealth building tool? As more women take on the leadership role in their families — and for their parents — for wealth planning, it’s more vital than ever to know the various tools available to not only increase financial net worth, but to build lifetime security for you and your family. Join financial and wealth building professional Michael Freedman, President of GWG Life LLC, as he explains in clear, easy-to-understand language how to maximize the value of your life insurance policy.  A life insurance policy is a valuable asset that can be sold to provide owners a valuable source of income – as much as five to eight times the cash surrender value offered by insurance companies. Known as “Life Settlements”, Americans of retirement age and younger are capitalizing on this income method that can help individuals repurpose their life insurance assets for their highest and best use for solid financial planning.
