The dynamical way of the healthcare and medical industry can be confusing and unsettling.

Your health cannot be ignored and must be handled properly. Senior Radio Buffalo is on WBEN 930am on Saturday mornings at 11am, guiding you through the health & wellness issues that most active seniors encounter. You are not alone!

The Senior Wishes story began in 2013, when ideas were being discussed on how the UCHS might best serve the senior citizen population of Western New York. UCHS, founding company of Fox Run at Orchard Park and the United Church Manor in West Seneca, was looking for a program that could bring real value to the aged. Wendy Miller Backman had volunteered with a small wish program years earlier and began describing it to Mike Maloney, CEO of Fox Run Orchard Park and UCHS Inc. at that time.
Mike and Wendy began a series of brain storming sessions and much research and realized that although there were a handful of these wish programs throughout the country, none existed in Western NY. UCHS decided to begin the Senior Wishes program to foster respect and appreciation for seniors by granting life enriching wishes!
UBNS follows a team approach to diagnosing and treating complex disorders of the central nervous system. Accordingly, patients treated at our institution derive the unique benefit of having multiple highly regarded physicians and other medical professionals involved in their care.
Each of UBNS' attending physicians is grouped into one of five specialized teams according to his or her area of expertise: neuroendovascular, movement disorders, pediatric neurosurgery, spine and skull base disorders, and/or minimally invasive endoscopy. Each team thus consists of at least one and up to three attending neurosurgeons; a cadre of nurses and nurse practitioners who are experts in the evaluation and management of brain and spine disease; and in many cases, a small group of fully trained neurosurgical research fellows.
