Local neurosurgeons meld technique with technology for neck fusion
Requiring a fusion of the cervical spine (neck) is traumatic enough — though often necessary due to pain from injury or disease. A newly performed procedure by a handful of local doctors makes that surgery potentially easier on patients and could shorten hospital stays. Dr. Chiu Yuen To, a neurosurgeon with Saint Francis Medical Partners, was one of the first in Memphis to use the Corus Spinal System, performing a surgery the first week of February. A surgeon at Campbell Clinic did the first… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Pharmaceuticals headlines)

While there is robust evidence about the concurrent side effects of antimalarial drugs, few studies have examined health effects that persist months or years after the drug was stopped.

Further research is warranted because existing studies are limited in their design. The repor...
