Social Contagion In The Exam Room: Peer Influence And Cancer Surgeons’ Use Of Breast MRI

A new study by researchers at Yale School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine has found that surgeons’ use of a new imaging test is influenced by the practice style of their peers.

Published in the current issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, the study suggests that social contagion — which has largely been studied in the field of sociology as a means by which ideas, attitudes, and behaviors spread — is also a relevant factor in medicine.

Lead author Cary P. Gross, MD, professor of medicine (general medicine), and director of Yale’s Cancer Outcomes Public Policy and Effectiveness Research (COPPER) Center, said it has been common knowledge that medical practice is influenced by many things, including patient attitudes and beliefs, reimbursement issues, and medical evidence. “Our study adds a new wrinkle to the literature,” he said. “We found that physician

Scoliosis Reversed By REACT Physical Therapy With Non-Invasive, No-Brace Treatment: The Reavy Method

REACT, the only Physical Therapy center in the world that uses the patent-pending Reavy Method, has employed their proprietary treatment methods to correct the scoliosis of a then-10-year-old child (now 12 years old) from Chicago, a total of 16 degrees in 1.5 years with no assistance from a back brace or surgery. To date, this is the first recorded case of reversing scoliosis so drastically with the Reavy Method and is recognized by John F. Sarwark, MD, Head of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, where Killian is treated.

"I am pleased to see such remarkable improvement of scoliosis over the years by only using physical therapy with Killian. All cases of scoliosis are unique and we must properly evaluate the method of physical therapy used when treating scoliosis with physical therapy. In Killian's case, working with David Re

Tiny Bubbles Help Heal Broken Bones, In Pigs

Researchers have developed a much needed alternative to bone grafts that could help alleviate the long-term hospitalization, disability, and considerable costs to the health system associated with non-healing fractures.

Roughly 100,000 broken bones every year in the United States fail to heal properly, resulting in nonunion fractures, and more than 2 million bone grafts are performed around the world annually in attempts to treat these challenging injuries.

Harvesting fresh bone from patients, however, is often painful and donated grafts from tissue banks frequently fail to integrate. Now, Maxim Bez and colleagues devised a two-step gene therapy method coupled with FDA-approved ultrasound and microbubbles that completely healed nonunion fractures in pigs within eight weeks of treatment.

First, researchers placed a collagen scaffold at the site of the break to provide a welcoming niche
