ST. LOUIS, Mo. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — As many as three and a half million Americans will have cataract surgery this year. Most of the time, surgery fixes the problem, but for three percent of the patients there is a surgical side effect that does not go away on its own. For those patients, eye surgeons at Washington University in St. Louis have devised a cutting-edge way to restore clear vision.

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — Two-hundred thousand Americans undergo weight loss surgery every year, choosing methods like gastric bypass, banding, or surgical balloons to shrink the stomach and decrease food intake. Now, doctors have another option for patients, when diet and exercise are not enough.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — It’s a condition that most Americans have never heard of and now experts say as many as one in three of us may be at risk. Fatty liver disease is on the rise. Here’s more on the condition and the continued search for an effective treatment for this gradual killer.

SEATTLE, Wash. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — She was called to help people more than 20 years ago when she became a nurse. She soon discovered there was more she could do for her patients than care for them at their beds. She is the nurse who protects and paints her patients.

SUMMIT, N.J. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — As many as 78,000 Americans will be diagnosed with a brain tumor this year.  If those tumors return after surgery, immunotherapy may be an option. It’s a treatment that revs up the body’s immune response to fight the cancer.

Quote of the week:

Everything you’ve learned in school as “obvious” becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There’s not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines.” 

— R. Buckminster Fuller
