The last place in medicine we expect any new discoveries is in anatomy. But in the last year there have been two stunners. Scientists found an invisible network of channels that course through our bodies opening all sorts of possibilities for how our cells communicate and function, and how medications circulate.
And recently scientists have discovered similarly invisible channels in solid bone, again opening up huge gaps in our understanding of the blood and immune system, of bone itself, and of how we handle medications.
These discoveries remind us of the importance of a thorough understanding of the benefits, risks, alternatives and unknowns involved in any medical decision, and of collaborating with doctor to share such decisions so they follow your own values and goals.
We can educate, coach and advocate to help with your collaboration.
