To Your Health
Colorectal Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths, and The Oregon Clinic continues to far outperform national benchmarks to prevent and remove it.
Congratulations to The Oregon Clinic Urologist Dr. Lance Marr, who has been designated as the first UroLift® Center of Excellence in the Pacific Northwest.
The Oregon Clinic Neurosurgery, together with The Providence Brain and Spine Institute, recently expanded their services to include stereotactic and functional neurosurgical procedures, which use ultra-precise techniques to surgically target abnormal physiologic processes in the brain. These techniques are currently used to treat movement disorders and epilepsy, and several new indications are under investigation including Alzheimer’s disease, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, Tourette’s syndrome, schizophrenia and traumatic brain injury.
Laura Dorn is an active person. A 58-year-old from Keizer, Oregon, she loves walking, running, swimming and anything else that keeps her on the go. Like most active people, her goal is to keep moving for as long as possible. She doesn’t want anything to slow her down, but a few years ago that goal looked like it was slipping away.
