New Molecular Surgery Innovation

Reshaping Tissue with Electricity and No Incisions Source:  University of California Irvine, Molecular Surgery Medical Innovation at the Cutting Edge This is important innovation, medicine and science.  It's new, innovative "molecular surgery" that, if you have to have surgery, you're going to prefer.  It's just at the beginning stage.  But it can reshape torn cartilage without any incision only electricity.  It can work to reshape a nose or ear and even shows promise to fix immobile joints and as a noninvasive alternative to laser eye surgery. Innovation from University of California and Occidental College The innovation is from UCAL Irvine and Occidental College.  Here's how it works.  Tiny needles are inserted into the damaged cartilage and they pass a low dose of electrical current through the tissue, which makes it soft and malleable. A customized 3D printed mold reshapes the tissue. The tissue stiffens and takes on the shape of the mold when t
