  • Point/Counterpoint sessions led by:
    • Stephen Schatz on Endoscopic Management of BPH, Friday, 10:45am
    • Trinity Bivalacqua on BCG Refractory Superficial Bladder Cancer, Friday, 4:00pm

  2. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
