BETTER PILL
BETTER PILL
Cancer drugs such as Rituxan and Taxol save lives, but not for everyone.

Synthetic human insulin has changed the lives of millions of diabetics, but they still have to inject the drug sometimes several times a day.

DISTRESS SIGNALS
When Cathy Perry's blood pressure and cholesterol began climbing and her waist expanded by a few inches, she blamed middle age. When her memory became fuzzy and she frequently forgot familiar names and phone numbers, she attributed it to impending menopause. And when she seemed to catch every cold and virus that went around, she pointed to her two kids.

HELMET REQUIRED
HELMET REQUIRED
Concussions, skull fractures and brain hemorrhages.

Now that we have your attention, consider that all these injuries can be suffered by children seeking fun and physical activity.

Thus, the proliferation of helmets for the sports children play and the activities in which they are engaged.

"Sure, it's a pain," commented Cheryl Hostetler, as she helped her protesting 4-year-old daughter strap on a bicycle helmet for a humid afternoon ride through their Lake Township allotment. "But we decided long ago that there are too many chances to get hurt really bad without a helmet."

Of course in his office, he also offered a choice of beverages, a complete gentleman. I felt badly about his lack of a meal, but must admit I wanted to get to the interview.

Cutting edge discoveries put Nuvasive in the spotlight


NEW TECHNIQUE
NEW TECHNIQUE
A surgeon stands under the bright operating lights, scalpel in hand, and explains his technique for making a tiny incision in the side of the patient to access the spine. Each of the surgeon's subtle movements is shown close-up on the video monitor overhead.

Another surgeon watches, listening intently. Flanking him are several other unlikely instructors in minimally invasive spine surgery - an engineer who designs the operating tools, a marketing executive and perhaps even someone who sells the tools.
