Host: Michael Greenberg, MD and Matthew Birnholz, MD
Guest: Anthony Atala, MD
This week's guest is Dr. Anthony Atala, who oversees the world's largest lab devoted to bioengineering body parts, from inkjet-printed hearts to tiny livers, at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He gives us an update from the cutting edge of medicine. Also, we get to the bottom line on how to protect your earnings in the coming tax year. And we talk with Dr. Marya Zilberberg about her recent article on The Healthcare Blog on medical testing and an approach toward a "less is more" philosophy of patient care.
