Menopause & HRT
Interview of Risa Kagan, M.D.
Female Interviewer: Hormones need replacing, or do they? It's that simple and that complex, just like your life.
Dr. Risa Kagan: Women are now living, can you believe, about one half of their life in that postmenopausal time.
Interviewer: Alta Bates Summit, Dr. Risa Kagan and her colleagues are helping women take charge of their health, as well as manage menopause and we think that's important.
Dr. Kagan: All of those women who had those babies here years ago, including myself are all now in those menopausal years, so we provide programs to help them be healthy in that next phase of life. Cardiovascular disease protection, your bones, your heart, breast cancer — which is one of the most important issues to women — so we age in the healthiest way possible; and I really think that's important.
Interviewer: Visit altabatessummit.org to find a doctor who's right for you. Alta Bates Summit, caring for women. That's important. A member of the Sutter Health family.
