The National Institute of Aging has granted funds to seven U.S. universities to study hormone replacement therapy. Current worldwide research has shown that hormone replacement slows both the deterioration and symptoms associated with aging, and enhances the immune system. This new field of medicine is becoming popular among physicians. Through research journals, the internet, conferences and my own patient care, I have been able to stay current in anti-aging medicine and therefore provide the best, most modern and proven health care possible. Almost daily, researchers are making breakthroughs, which I evaluate and make available to my patients.
