  • Patent number: 8924236
    Abstract: A system and process for providing a computerized medical and biographical records database and diagnostic information. A medical records database and diagnostic program is stored on a central computer that is accessible to individuals using remotely situated computers connected to a computer network. Individual patient medical and biographical records are owned by individual patients who can enter information in their record as well as grant or deny authorization to others, such as health care professionals, insurance providers and other entities, to review part or all of their record. The method, process and system establishes the parameters of function of providers and users of the services, stores all available data, provides the functional platforms for all medical, non-medical, and financial transactions to occur in an electronic, software-guided, anonymous, efficient, and uniform environment.

Individual patient medical and biographical records are owned by individual patients who can enter information in their record as well as grant or deny authorization to others, such as health care professionals, insurance providers and other entities, to review part or all of their record. The diagnostic program provides a series of diagnostic questions to an individual who must respond either “yes” or “no” to each question. Each potential response is weighted relative to its importance to a particular disease diagnosis. Relative weights for all responses to diagnostic questions are summed to identify potential diagnoses to connected to the answered questions.

  • Patent number: 6835208
    Abstract: A spinal prosthesis for insertion during surgery in a space between first and second vertebrae of a spine includes a central support sized and shaped for insertion between the first and second vertebrae. The support has a height measured between a top and a bottom approximately equal to a selected spacing between the first and second vertebrae. Upper and lower flex members extend from the top and bottom of the central support, respectively, for engaging the first and second vertebrae. The upper and lower members have a stiffness sufficiently small to permit the members to flex elastically toward each other under loading from the first and second vertebrae.

  • Patent number: 6582446
    Abstract: Apparatus for injecting an immobilizing substance into a target site of a bone. The apparatus includes a cannula having a bore for transporting the immobilizing substance to the target site of the bone when a leading end of the cannula is positioned adjacent the target site of the bone. The bore has a diameter of at least about three millimeters. In addition, the apparatus includes a rotary cutter element removably attachable to the cannula for easing insertion of the cannula into position so the leading end of the cannula is positioned adjacent the target site of the bone and a connector attached to at least one of the cannula and the cutter element for releasably connecting the cutter element to the cannula during insertion of the cannula into position adjacent the target site of the bone. The apparatus also includes a handle attached to the cutter element for turning the cutter element to advance the leading end of the cannula into position adjacent the target site of the bone.

  • Patent number: 6413278
    Abstract: A surgical method of inserting a prosthetic system between first and second vertebrae spaced by a disc to limit motion between and to facilitate fusion of the first and second vertebrae. The method includes the steps of exposing the first and second vertebrae and the disc, excising at least a portion of the disc from between the first and second vertebrae, and scraping the cartilage from facing surfaces of the vertebrae to expose the facing surfaces. The method also includes the steps of spacing the first and second vertebrae by a selected distance and simultaneously cutting grooves in the facing surfaces of the vertebrae using a cutting tool having opposing blades. A mechanical prosthesis is anchored in the grooves cut in the facing surfaces of the vertebrae so that the prosthesis extends between the vertebrae and limits motion between the vertebrae.

  • Patent number: 5197466
    Abstract: A system and method for producing volumetric conductive hyperthermia for the treatment of a cancerous tumor in a patient. The location and volume of the tumor are determined with the aid of a CT scanning system, and an array of probes each containing a heat-emitting element is formed by interstitial implantation in the tumor in a predetermined pattern for volumetric heating using a template for guiding the probes into parallel alignment in the tumor. The template is affixed with respect to the patient's body and with respect to the imaging plane of the CT scanning system. After implantation, the probes are connected to a manifold which is in turn connected to an external control system capable of independently controlling the probes while monitoring various analog and digital values representative of system performance.
