The future, clearly, is not in the removal of major attachments of muscles. It will lie in novel ways of stimulating healing of injured tendons such as the biceps. These advances are on the way.
Cancer has been normalized by society as a terminal disease, one that leaves little hope for recovery. Recovery is termed "survivorship" and the adop...
On Saturday 6th February, the world will mark the International Day for Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
Unfortunately, I am continually disappointed when I come across proposals from the halls of academia that seek to impose an "algorithm" for value of health care that seeks to mechanically determine what tests and treatments are worth giving to patients and which are not.
Giving patients a range of treatment options and the ability to make an informed choice about the regimen that most directly aligns with their personal health priorities is fundamental to high-quality, individualized health care.
Another piece of Trump hyperbole. Ridiculous of course. But what does Donald J. Trump really know about health care? Thanks to OnTheIssues.org we can read his positions in his own words, because his website has NO position on health care. None.
With these taxes now postponed or suspended, policymakers could well start to treat them like other temporary tax provisions that they routinely extend -- effectively making the delays permanent.
Mobile is the single most important change in the world since the invention of the internet. Seventy-one percent of adults in the U.S. now own a web-enabled smartphone or other wireless device.
Anyone watching the Republican and Democratic presidential debates would be excused for thinking that there are indeed two different countries called "America," a Republican America and a Democratic America.
I carry you with me. I am your nurse. So when you don't see me, please know that I'm near. Your life is my responsibility -- your livelihood, my pride. We carry you with us: on scribbled notes in pockets, through aching within worn bodies -- forever in our minds.
If the government actually paid for the research, not just at the early phases but through the clinical testing and FDA, then there would be no reason for patent monopolies. Drugs could be sold in a free market just like toothpicks and plastic cups.
To my friends supporting Sanders and O'Malley, we share common dreams and values that our Democratic nominee must fulfill. We need a Democratic president and a Democratic Congress to build on the progress that has been made.
Some critics cite the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates of enrollment in health reform's marketplaces to argue that health reform is losing ...
Sanders proposes a health care system like Canada's, where health care for everyone is just as good at half the price because the middleman, Big Insurance, has been cut out of the picture. Even Donald Trump has said the Canadian health care system is good but that it may be too late to do in the U.S.
In many ways, the health debate between Clinton and Sanders is really less about health policy than about the entire conception of their campaigns: Clinton the pragmatic incrementalist and Sanders the bold visionary. But neither of the two candidates is focused on measures, incremental or bold, that move our health care system to focus on promoting good health, demanding that health care providers get paid for quality care or reducing racial inequities in health care.
What if you were able to cure a disease before someone even caught it? Now imagine doing that on a larger scale -- for an entire community of people ...
