Spondylolisthesis
September 2021 Issue
 
 
 

Nearly every major medical breakthrough over the past 50 years can be attributed to new discoveries that were made possible through meticulous biomedical research. Many diseases and conditions that previously took a heavy toll on patients in terms of both morbidity and mortality are now either treatable or preventable thanks in large part to painstaking research that expanded the frontiers of scientific knowledge and moved the most promising basic research developments into tangible health benefits through human clinical trails. Ongoing research is also the key that will open the door to additional major medical advances and breakthroughs in the future.

Our staff at Medifocus is committed to keeping our subscribers to the Medifocus Digest Alert on Spondylolisthesis abreast of the latest new research developments that have recently been published in the medical literature for this condition. In this issue of the Digest Alert, you will find a focused list of hand-picked journal article references that represent the latest advances in basic and clinical research for Spondylolisthesis. These articles represent the current state-of-the-art of the research that will hopefully lead to additional major advances and breakthroughs in the clinical management of Spondylolisthesis. You can access the summaries of each article referenced below by simply clicking on the article Title.

We will continue to update you with the latest scientific and clinical developments through the Medifocus Digest Alert on Spondylolisthesis every 3 months. Thank you for your ongoing subscription to this publication.

What Our Customers Are Saying...

"The MediFocus Guidebook on Spondylolisthesis provided me with the information I needed to make an informed decision regarding my treatment. The Guidebook clearly explained the various grades of spondylolisthesis and what patients can expect at each stage. The various treatment options are also clearly explained so that you walk away with a much more realistic expectation about what to expect after treatment."

"The MediFocus Guidebook on Spondylolisthesis enabled me to have a more meaningful and serious discussion with my Orthopedic Surgeon about the various treatment options that are available to me. Your very comprehensive and informative Guidebook not only helped me prepare the right questions to ask my surgeon but also helped me better understand the answers he provided."
