Dr. Oz Undergoes a Life-Saving Colonoscopy and Receives a Surprising Diagnosis as 'The Dr. Oz Show' Launches Its Second Season Tuesday, September 7

Plus, 'The Dr. Oz Show' Introduces '5 to Know,' 'Just 10 Pounds' and 'The Pulse' as New Segments for Season Two

NEW YORK, Sept. 1 -- Dr. Oz finds himself in the unfamiliar role of Patient when "The Dr. Oz Show" returns for its second season on Tuesday, September 7. As part of the second season premiere, the Emmy Award-winning host, who turned 50 in June, undergoes a colonoscopy to emphasize the critical role they can play in detecting and preventing colon cancer. Dr. Jon LaPook, gastroenterologist and chief medical correspondent for CBS News, administers the screening and reveals some surprising news that will have a profound impact on Dr. Oz's life, family and viewers.

Additional shows airing during premiere week feature three major themes which will recur throughout the year - "5 to Know," "Just 10 Pounds" and "The Pulse." Each of these three segments will be fixtures on the show in the fall and teach viewers about the five most important numbers that can save lives: blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose, weight and waist size.

On Wednesday, September 8, Dr. Oz facilitates our national conversation on breast cancer and examines the discussion surrounding ductile carcinoma in situ or DCIS. Esteemed breast cancer specialists Dr. Laura Esserman, Director of UCSF Breast Center, and Dr. Ruth Oratz, a breast cancer surgeon and advisor to Susan G. Komen for The Cure, will discuss the difference of opinions, risks and options for women diagnosed with DCIS.

On Thursday, September 9, "The Dr. Oz Show" travels across the country, from Embarrass, Minnesota to Peculiar, Missouri, and from Truthville, New York to Truth or Consequences, New Mexico to reveal America's most embarrassing questions. Some residents are in studio to ask Dr. Oz their blush worthy queries in person. This show also provides a back pain clinic for the number one cause of missed work in America - low back pain.

Friday, September 10 debuts a brand new feature segment for 2010 - "The Pulse" - which rounds up top medical experts for a spirited discussion of the hottest health headlines. Friday's episode features the most interesting stories of summer 2010, such as the danger of cosmetic contact lenses. "The Pulse" will re-appear throughout the season at various intervals and when major health stories happen.

Monday, September 13 marks the debut of "Just 10 Pounds." Just 10 pounds are all you need to make a huge difference in reducing your risk factors for stroke, heart disease, diabetes and other ailments. Dr. Oz shows his audience the consequences of the extra weight with a fatty liver, smaller brain, fatty heart, fatty omentum and deteriorated knee cap pulled from a cadaver. A team of experts consisting of Dr. Mike Roizen, interventionist Brad Lamm, trainer Gunnar Peterson, and nutritionist Dr. Ro will be on hand to discuss specific techniques to lose the weight and how to stay motivated.
