Concerned about Sperm Count? Get Off the Sofa

When you’ve had a tiring day at work and Netflix beckons as you walk through the door, it’s a struggle to find the motivation to exercise.  Don’t give in to the temptation to hit the sofa for the night because new research cautions that too much TV – and too little activity – could spell trouble for your fertility. Known as The Rochester Young Men’s Study, the research draws on semen samples collected by a team from our own University of Rochester Center for Reproductive Epidemiology (based out of URMC’s OB/GYN Department).

New Data Shows Black and Older Men Most at Risk for Aggressive Prostate Cancer

Skiing and snowboarding require a lot of strength and good balance. As an avid skier for over 40 years, I firmly believe in a pre-season strength…Continue Reading

Sudden Cardiac Arrest: Four Steps to Save a Life

By Dr. Bruce L. Wilkoff Do you ever wonder what you’d do if you saw someone experience a life threatening emergency? What if you see someone suddenly collapse and lose consciousness?
