Building SuperHumans
It is a heady time in the world of human empowerment. We are seeing technologies that can alter our genetic code, augment our brainpower, enhance our physique, and extend our lives.

Longevity Ain’t What It’s Cracked Up to Be

Longevity Ain’t What It’s Cracked Up to Be
The science of life extension seems completely seductive—who wouldn’t want to enjoy a longer lifespan? But it comes with surprisingly huge costs.

Virtual Reality: How patients, doctors and athletes will be educated

Virtual Reality: How patients, doctors and athletes will be educated
Virtual reality is just about to hit the inflection point. Soon, nearly everyone will have a VR device, or use one regularly. In almost every educational setting—whether it’s teacher to student, coach to athlete, or doctor to patient— the experience can be vastly improved by this new tool.

Biodynamic health

biodynamic health - lessons from farming
What lessons can we apply from biodynamic farming that can help us promote health and cure disease?

Stem Cells Don’t Make Cartilage

Mesenchymal stem cells labeled with fluorescence molecules
Stem cell-based therapies, in which the body’s own cells are stimulated to contribute to the repair process, are enormously promising in all areas of medicine, including articular cartilage regeneration. Yet our understanding of stem cells continues to evolve.

The “New Doctor” Disease

Young doctors
A new doctor, fresh out of a top residency and fellowship, wants all the right things at the wrong time.

Memories: They are all there

Memories may be permanent and total
What if rather than being fleeting and spotty, memory was in fact permanent and total. The following article is part of a series where we re-imagine not only medicine and technology but what it means to be human.

The end of antibiotics and chemotherapy

Could a modified polio virus cure cancer?
Could astonishing results from a new cancer treatment discovery signal the beginning of a new era of disease treatment?

Could Artificial Intelligence end the Electronic Medical Record nightmare?

Medical version of Siri could assist doctors
Electronic medical records mean doctors and nurses spend too much time on data entry. Artificial Intelligence has long since solved highly formulaic situations and could prompt doctors to be better at their jobs.

The Z-Lig™ ACLR Device, invented by Kevin R. Stone, M.D. and subsequently developed by Aperion Biologics, has been cleared for marketing and distribution in the European Union and other markets which recognize the CE Mark.

Stem Cell Therapy: Adult stem cells can boost healing of your joints

Stem Cell Therapy: Adult stem cells can boost healing of your joints
When we are injured, our body immediately begins the process of healing itself. Certain stem cells, called mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) play a critical role in tissue formation and healing.

Biology trumps bionics: An alternative to total knee replacement

alternative to a knee replacement-avoid-a-knee-replacement-bioknee
We like to do everything possible to rebuild the knee joint with biologic tissues rather than artificial materials to help delay the time in which an artificial joint replacement is necessary.
