PIKEVILLE — Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) is mourning the loss of a dedicated employee this month.

Dr. Alnajjar saves patient’s leg

PIKEVILLE — Whitesburg resident Hubert Howard was experiencing severe pain in the lower area of both legs, making it nearly impossible to walk. He was seen at the Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) Speciality Clinic at Whitesburg by Surgeon Dr. Raed Alnajjar. After an examination, Dr. Alnajjar diagnosed Howard with severe peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in his left leg and foot.   Approximately eight million people in the United States have PAD, including 12-20 percent of individuals older than age 60.

It is primarily caused by the buildup of fatty plaque in the arteries, which is called atherosclerosis. PAD can occur in any blood vessel, but it is more common in the more on this story...  

SAVING BABIES’ LIVES: PMC, March of Dimes team up to make a difference

PIKEVILLE — After delivering a healthy baby boy, Samuel Nathan, at 40 weeks gestation in 2010, Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) Hospitalist Dr. Alicia Warnock assumed her second pregnancy in 2013 would be similar.   Everything was normal until she began leaking fluid at 34 weeks. Dr. Warnock said, “We quickly went to PMC and learned that I had premature rupture of membranes, meaning my water had broke.   Orders were given for bed rest and steroids in an attempt to mature the baby’s lungs. ” The Warnock family welcomed their daughter, Caroline Dove, on June 7, 2013.   She weighed 4 pounds, 10. 9 ounces.   She was taken to the PMC Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and required only oxygen support during the first 24 hours. Dr. Warnock said, “The following day Caroline developed respiratory distress and was placed on a ventilator.   As a physician, more on this story...  

Raising awareness for ovarian cancer

As a doctor dedicated to the care of women with gynecologic cancer, I know that September is an important month.   It is the time to enhance awareness of ovarian cancer, the deadliest gynecological cancer and the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women. This disease, which starts in the ovaries and spreads to other organs in the abdomen, is highly curable if found in its early stages.   All too often, it has already spread at the time of diagnosis and the opportunity for a cure is diminished.   Since there is no effective screening test for the general population, it is critical that women know their level of risk for ovarian cancer and be on the lookout for early symptoms.    The chance of developing ovarian cancer in a woman’s lifetime is about 1 in 72.    The more on this story...
