Mitraclip uses a catheter-based delivery system to repair the leakiness of the mitral valve for patients at risk for open heart surgery.
Mohs micrographic surgery is one of the most advanced methods used to remove cancerous skin and minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue and the risk of leaving cancerous tissue behind.
Daytime multiple sleep latency testing may be used to diagnosis narcolepsy, a condition where you fall asleep frequently during the day.
A myelogram, also known as myelography, is performed to assess the spinal cord, subarachnoid space or other structures for abnormalities, particularly when another type of examination, such as a standard X-ray, is inconclusive.
