Tune in on Saturday, August 27, 2022, with host Dr. Marianne Ritchie to learn about advances in gastroenterology.

Third Space Endoscopy: The New Frontier – Tune in this week to hear about the remarkable advances in the field of gastroenterology from a national leader. Dr. Alex Schlachterman has completed 200 procedures called POEM (Per Oral Endoscopic Myotomy) used to repair a condition of the esophagus that formerly required surgery. He also offers a procedure called ESD (Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection) which removes pre-cancerous and cancerous tumors of the esophagus, stomach, and colon without surgery.

Meet Our Guest:

Alexander Schlachterman, MD

  • Associate Professor of Medicine, Sidney Kimmel Medical College
  • Director of Third Space Endoscopy, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital

Your Real Champion® 

“Crab Cakes for a Cause”

Jason and Bridget Lottier are owners of several Capt’n Chucky’s Crab Company locations, and most recently acquired the main location in Newtown Square. Their generous nature includes partnering with many schools and churches in fund-raising projects. Bridget was so moved by the story of a little girl who lost her battle to cancer that they added “Philomena’s Jersey Shore Crab Cake” to the menu and donate some of the proceeds to the non-profit formed in the child’s memory.
