Suffering from stones?
You’ve heard it again and again — this too shall pass! But this time, we’re referring to urinary or kidney stones. These stones are common and occur frequently in men and women. Listen to this gem of a topic discussed by UF Health urologist Vincent Bird, MD.

Regenerative medicine: A potential game changer.
Regenerative medicine can be summarized in two words — self-healing. Instead of treating the symptoms of disease, trauma or illness, regenerative medicine can repair or replace damaged tissue or organs, thereby avoiding expensive and risky interventions such as surgery or long-term medications. We all have stem cells and some of these have the ability to develop into tissue- or organ-specific cells, serving as dutiful workers repairing the broken machinery of our bodies while others work as smart “factories,” producing biologic agents that rescue and repair diseased organs. Listen to how this process is taking shape at the UF Center for Regenerative Medicine. The speaker will be Keith March, M.D., Ph.D.
