How Dr. Mark McKenna Plans To Reform The Elective Surgery Industry

Dr. Mark McKenna is an entrepreneur in the elective healthcare industry. He has a lot of things planned for his career in 2018 starting with the grand opening of what he calls a “medical aesthetic experience” clinic in Buckhead, the trendiest neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia. The clinic is called OVME (pronounced like “Of Me”) and it will offer minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedures.

When people first visit OVME he has a private office including in the clinic where patients will receive their individual consultations. This clinic also features four luxurious and private treatment rooms where the procedures will be performed. He said that when designing the OVME clinic he wanted to combine state-of-the-art technology with medical aesthetics so that patients receive the exact look they were hoping for.

Before opening his clinic, Dr. Mark McKenna sent out a press release to local media. He said that the medical aesthetic industry has grown way to stale. People, he said, are seeking out a new experience and it is his goal to reinvent how elective care is perceived.

Dr. Mark Mckenna has been in this industry for the past 18 years. After graduating from the Tulane School of Medicine he started practicing in his dad’s clinic while also working in the real estate industry. Eventually, he left real estate behind and moved from New Orleans to Atlanta. He owned and operated another company in Atlanta called ShapeMed for a number of years but sold it to a gym chain.

In another revolutionary move for the elective care industry, Dr. Mark McKenna is planning to release a mobile app for it. This app, also called OVME, will shake things up by introducing an Uber-like setting to this industry. People will tap in what procedure they want performed and where they are at. A licensed cosmetic surgeon will then show up and do the procedure. Dr. Mark McKenna is really excited about this and has been attending trade shows and other events so that he can get cosmetics surgeons signed up for this new service in cities across the United States.

Mr. Eric Lefkofsky and His Advancements in Cancer Research

Medicine is truly a modern-day miracle, having all but eliminated many of the world’s most deadly diseases that existed a millennium, a century, and even just decades ago. Polio used to leave children affected by the disease with malformed and underdeveloped limbs – whether just one was affected, as most common with polio, or all four of them, if not more – it turns out, the cure was as simple as placing a type of medicine on sugar cubes, the vaccine effectively eliminating polio in all developed nations around the world.

Scientific researchers didn’t randomly stumble on the vaccine. Rather, they conducted research, and through loads of trial and error, physicians were able to eliminate polio from affecting new generations. Just as polio and other ailments used to cause deformities or death in millions of people every single year, cancer has taken second place in the list of the world’s deadliest diseases, behind none other than cardiovascular disease.

A recent study conducted by three physicians at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, reviewed the repeat diagnosis rate in 740,990 people that had freshly been diagnosed with cancer. Statistics for the cohort are split into senior citizens, those aged at least 65 years of age, and those who aren’t in their golden years.

Of the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results study, 25% of seniors had been diagnosed with cancer – particular diagnoses and areas of concentrations were disregarded for the metanalysis – whereas just 11% of those under 65 years of age had experienced the disease before.

The chances of coming down with the same kind of cancer depend on its particular method of action and other biologic processes related to the deadly, morale-crushing disease. One cancer, on the lowest end of the spectrum, caused returns of cancer in just 3.5% of all diagnosed patients, up to 36.9% in other diagnoses.

To help figure out cancer, Eric Lefkofsky created Tempus, an Internet-based library of information relevant to the disease.

Lefkofsky brought home a bachelor’s and doctorate from the University of Michigan prior to becoming a serial entrepreneur, where he sold carpet door-to-door.
