    DescriptionIt is truly an amazing time in which to live. Who could have imagined that so much has been accomplished in the various fields of medicine that not only is life expectancy going up, but the quality of life is so dramatically improved. New drugs, new technology and new procedures will offer patients worldwide a chance for a better life-and it is only just beginning. In this remarkable book, medical researchers Drs. Elena Fitchev, and Douglas Krejsa, have investigated some the most important and eye-popping changes in medicine and writes about them in such a way that they will help you understand what has happened and what will happen in the future to make our lives better and healthier. Many of the medical breakthroughs are reapplications of existing drugs and procedures to new diseases and problems. It takes a very creative mind (and a profit motive, no doubt) to find that a drug created for one disease actually helps with other illnesses. Others are entirely new procedures or protocols, created from the latest clinical tests. The medical breakthroughs in this remarkable book offer everyone a chance to be informed (and encouraged) as they face illness and old age.Readers will learn about: * What is innovative in cosmetic surgery* Non-invasive technologies* New treatments for cancer* Organ transplants* Strategies in patient and doctor communications* Joint replacement improvements* Changes in physical therapy* Computer-assisted medicine
