For AirXpanders, a switch from 510(k) to de novo was no big deal
Scott Dodson didn’t worry when the FDA requested a call. Dodson is CEO of AirXpanders, a Palo Alto, Calif.-based company that had made a 510(k) submission for its AeroForm tissue expander, a device designed for post-mastectomy breast reconstructions that uses a gradual patient-controlled release of compressed gas to expand and stretch the skin/underlying muscle before a permanent breast implant. With that in mind, the FDA wanting to speak with AirXpanders’ executives was initially seen as a positive, Dodson said. However, regulators explained over the phone, then by fax, that they saw AeroForm more appropriatel...

New Laws to Ease Doctor Shortage See Long Delays, Criticism
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - A new Missouri law offered a first-of-its-kind solution to the physician shortage plaguing thousands of U.S. communities: Medical school graduates could start treating patients immediately, without wading through years of traditional residency programs. Following Missouri's lead, similar measures were enacted in Arkansas and Kansas and considered in Oklahoma. The idea appeared to be a new model for delivering medical care in regions with too few physicians to meet needs. Yet more than 18 months after that first law passed, Missouri regulators are still trying to make it work. And not a single new doct...

Flaunting My Flub: A Personal Protest Made Public
A few nights ago I attended a hot yoga class on a whim. For the class, I didn't wear a shirt. A seemingly functional, but incredibly emotional decision. I had an alternate option: the undershirt I had worn to work (hot yoga was an impromptu decision), which meant I would be commuting home in a soaked, salty tank top. But the real reason I wanted to go à la sports bra was on principle. You see, I have not been feeling very confident about my body as of late.

The “organic” Way to Younger Skin
What do you think when you hear about stem cells? Perhaps you think they are “experimental” or you’re concerned about what you’ve read or heard in the news media about stem cells from embryos. But there is a better way to view this therapy. Stem cells are part of your body and its own natural healing mechanism. In my view, they are probably the ultimate natural healer. We began offering stem cell treatments last month at the Sears Institute of Anti-Aging Medicine — and the results have been just amazing.
