Medical Break-throughs

Date Tue, July 8 2008

Since our newspaper is a military one, I often see articles about the great medical strides being made to aid service members and veterans who have suffered physical and emotional injuries. I am always amazed at the robots and more involved in some of the replacement limbs, yet I know that’s just the tip of the ice berg. What the medical world today can do to improve quality of life, fight, prevent and correct injuries and illnesses is simply crazy.

Some such things include everything from insulin delivery services to joint replacement, to implants, to orthopedics, to medical diagnostics which test and screen to help patients get an accurate diagnoses. This is essentially important because even the best technology can’t save a life if the issue is unknown.

It’s really amazing what can be done and with recent thoughts about methods that could possibly cure herpes, chicken pox and shingles, it seems that things that almost everyone has had (or will have) to deal with can soon become things of the past, like small pox.
