DMG Productions proudly announces the upcoming airing of Health Heroes on Sunday, October 27, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. EDT on Fox Business.

In this episode of Health Heroes, viewers will learn about Mammotome® and their Biopsy System, which allows doctors to achieve diagnostic confidence using a less invasive approach that offers women faster recovery, less scarring and lower costs of care as compared to open procedures. Health Heroes viewers will learn why nearly 4.5 million women and their doctors have trusted the Mammotome® Biopsy system, and how Mammotome is continuing to develop breakthrough technologies for breast diagnostics.

The show will educate audiences on the mild® procedure, developed by Vertos Medical to treat a common back condition called lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). LSS is primarily a degenerative narrowing of the lower spinal canal that causes symptoms including pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling in the lower back, legs or buttocks when standing or walking. mild® is a safe, minimally invasive, outpatient procedure performed through an incision the size of a baby aspirin that requires no general anesthesia, no implants and no stitches. mild® can help patients diagnosed with LSS stand longer and walk farther with less pain.

Health Heroes will also explore Knee Creations and their Subchondroplasty® procedure, a minimally invasive surgical intervention that treats bone defects by filling them with a biomimetic bone substitute material.

In addition, the show will focus on Diatherix Labs' cost effective method for accurately identifying organisms in specific disease states. Spectators will witness Diatherix Laboratories' ability to yield results in one day, the simplicity of their single sample collection, simultaneous identification of bacteria, viruses, and parasites, detection of bacteria in the presence of antibiotics, and more.

"Technology is constantly changing, and with it bringing new innovations that are revolutionizing the medical community," said Michele Nehls, producer for the Health Heroes series. "I'm enthusiastically awaiting the airing of this exciting new episode."
