Medicine and More…
Ivanhoe produces three on-going series of news reports: Medical Breakthroughs, Family Health and Smart Woman. Our web site features the medical breakthrough reports but we like to bring in some of the family health and smart woman stories under our “Special Reports” section on the home page and I will mention them from time to time in this First to Know. I hope some or all of them are interesting to you!
Watch our Medical Headline Videos:
- Dr Richard Glogau, MD, Dermatologist and Clinical Professor at the University of California, San Francisco, is using botulinum toxin (Botox) for people with severe sweating problems. It’s produced by a company called Revance. Canada and Mexico have completed clinical trials and some are expected to start in the US later this year.
- Dr Michael Markou, DO, Osteopathic Physician at the Markou Medical Center in Tampa is injecting stem cells into sports injuries to give people relief. Considered by some to be controversial , patients like World Series MVP Pat Borders rave about it. Medicare classifies it experimental and so insurance doesn’t cover it yet.
- Dr Nancy Rector-Finney, MD, Four Seasons OB/GYN in San Antonio, says the da Vinci robot has revolutionized hysterectomies. The single site surgery has many benefits including no scars, less chance of infection and quicker recovery time.
Daniel Hughes, PhD, Assistant Professor and Clinical Exercise Physiologist at UT Health Science Center, led a study to test yoga against a gym work-out and the results may surprise you. And our second special report is “The 6 Secret Causes of Back Pain” with Linda Van Dillen, PT, PhD, Professor of Physical Therapy and Orthopedic Surgery at Washington University in St Louis. Depression, anxiety and other culprits worth knowing about make this an report worth reading.
Our final report has help for stress if you can download the free app called meQuilibrium. It was designed by doctors and many users find it reduces stress in the workplace as well as at home.
