I’m excited and often awestruck by the current rapid advances in medical technology. I have added an exciting video below for those who have not yet become knowledgeable about the advancing science of CRISPR. Please take a few minutes to watch this when you have some free time.

On my last news post I gave a shout-out to the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center (UCHSC) at the Anschutz Medical Campus. The physicians and scientist working there are saving lives and changing the world of medicine. I’ve had the pleasure to meet and work with many of the talented staff at the UCHSC, and I find them to be universally professional and compassionate.

The UCHSC has achieved national acclaim from many sources, including an article published in US World and News Report, which the hospital was nationally ranked as 11th in 40 adult medical specialties, and is regionally ranked as the number 1 in Colorado and number 1 in Denver as the best hospital and medical research center. This is impressive, and a genuine asset to the metro Denver area.

I have confidently given personal referrals to friends and family to Peter Butrick, MD, the Division Head of the Cardiology Department at the UCHSC, and to many of the incredibly talented staff of physicians in that department. Additionally, Mark Nehler, MD, a professor and surgeon at the UCHSC has been a trusted medical advisor for myself and so many others in Denver for numerious years. Finally, Bennie Lindeque, MD, Ph.D, the orthopedic oncology surgeon who treated my stepson, Spenser is a world renowned physician who practices medicine at the UCHSC.

I would love to give specific testimonials to many more physicians and scientists at the UCHSC, and I will comment on each one of them in future news posts, but time and space requires that I include them in appropriate future posts.

As promised, please enjoy the Ted.com talk below for a detailed description of CRISPR:
