Frank Leone, MD, MS, pulmonologist and Director of Comprehensive Smoking Treatment Programs at the University of Pennsylvania, discusses how the morbidities and health complications from smoking are certainly well established. And even with social trends increasingly making the life of a smoker more difficult, many of our patients still can't kick the habit.
Joining your host, Dr. Lee Freedman, to discuss smoking cessation therapies is Dr. Leone. Dr. Leone covers the origins of the habit, nicotine addiction, and how to best approach patients with both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatments.
