Over the last ten years there have been some notable medical advances in medical technology. These advancements have enabled patients to recover from illnesses and diseases in a much easier manner than before. Major strides have been made in disease treatment and in the improvement of overall life quality for patients.
” I’m grateful for the research done in creating laparoscopic surgery”, stated Jason Hope. “Such surgeries are minimally invasive, enabling my patients to recover at a much faster pace and return to their normal activities.” Mr. Hope further said.
Another great technological advancement in medicine is the human genome program. According to Jason, “Over the last twenty years this has to be one of the most important advances as, through human DNA, every disease-causing gene can be identified.” By identifying genes that cause disease and illness, a more effective plan of attack can be made.
Face transplants are a groundbreaking achievement. In 2005 in Amiens, France, the first ever facial transplant took place, on a female whose face was mauled in an accident. “Through face transplantation, my clients can have a new, positive outlook on life.” effusively stated Jason.
A God send has been the FDA’s approval of Seasonale in 2003. This pill enables women to have fewer menstrual periods a year, as few as only 4. Jason Hope stated, “In addition the 2007 approval by the FDA of Lybrel will stop a woman’s period indefinitely. Amazing!”
On the cutting edge of health innovation is the creation of bionic limbs, such as arms, hands, legs, and many other limbs. This increases a patient’s quality of life and enables him/her to perform tasks they were unable to do otherwise. ” Without question this is a groundbreaking and creative advancement.”, stated Jason. ” In addition the limbs feel very real and patients can live lives to their best potential.” Jason further said. In addition this is a philanthropy achievement because limbs are donated to people who otherwise couldn’t afford them. Shows that doctors truly have a heart!
Then there’s stem cell research, an advancement that knows no limits. In 2006 as a result of extensive research that took several years, scientists illustrated that cells can be returned back into stem cells. ” This has enabled new treatments and therapies for eye disease and heart repair, among others, to be developed.” Jason Hope stated excitedly.
So what’s next? Normal orifice surgery procedures such as surgery in a nose orifice or the anus are being introduced and developed, in their beginning stages as of late 2014. ” Not even the sky is the limit anymore.”, stated Mr. Hope. Furthermore through stem cell research and bionic limb creation prosthetic kidneys are created to offer diabetes patients on dialysis.
” All these medical achievements are truly innovative and beyond positive.” stated Jason.
