Israel's revolutionary Parkinson's surgery shows they are at the forefront of medical advancements...again!

If you had a disease that was threatening your way of life, where would you go? Mayo Clinic? John Hopkins? Toronto General?

Maybe you should head to Haifa’s Rambam Hospital, in Israel....and no maybes about it.

Israel has been doing some amazing work in researching and finding answers to medical questions. Their work in trying to find a cure to advanced Melanoma has saved countless lives. They've done it again in this surgical procedure that could make life better for people suffering from Parkinson's Disease.

The Israeli company Insightec has developed the procedure that cures the tremors that come with Parkinson's. It's noninvasive, using a computer and ultrasound waves. After an hour, the patient gets up and heads for home.

REVOLUTIONARY!!!!

Why can't we develop procedures like this in the United States? Pharma money?

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
