In 1991, Oreotech Inc’s Grafton demineralized bone matrix (DBM) gel, made from allograft bone, was the first product of it’s kind to earn approval for use in musculosketal surgery. Marshall Urist really first identified this process, but scientist built on to his research to provide surgeons with off-the-shelf products for bone healing. DBM has been used for more than 1 million successful surgical sergical procedures.

In 1998, homeopathy was the most frequently used CAM therapy in 5 out of 14 surveyed countries in Europe. Between the years 1995 and 2005, the cost of homeopathy treatment grew by 60%. The cost for this medicine went up because because of it’s growing popularity, this alternative treatment was a threat to conventional medicine. Homeopathy, however very powerful, may in some conditions not respond to the microbes because they might require surgery or immediate treatment.

-Innovations in the inflammatory Bowel disease.

The invention in the being able to use light waves to visualize the lining of the small intestine and determine areas of inflammation was introduced in the early 1990’s.

It’s other wise know as being able to monitor with optical coherence tomography.

The OCT principle was presented at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Carl Zeiss made the first commercial version of OCT, he made it in 1996. “The peripapillary area of the retina and the coronary artery were the first structures examined with OCT technology.” “The continuous progress in OCT technology transformed this imaging method into a valuable examination tool for the retinal practice” This continual persistence of the growth of the OCT made it possible to figure out how to use it to help in solving cure for Chron’s disease.

1984 bionic limb

1984 first bionic limb was put on a person. Before luis Palmer invented the artificial leg, people used peg legs . Peg legs were very bad because they gave people bad infections. Now they do not have infections.
