About the Book

It is the first of its kind where a physician is trying to communicate with old people. Note that because of the short span of concentration, each disease and its present treatment and present and futuristic therapy were described in very short form. Some emphasis were placed on the future of medical treatments of certain diseases with immunotherapy and stem cell therapy.

About the Author

I am a retired cancer surgeon. Former Professor of Surgery and Oncology at University of Maryland. I have authored 153 manuscript, 112abstracts, 54 newsletters, hand book of surgical oncology, 16 chapters in medical books and was invited as visiting professor for over 130 times. After the death of my wife, I spent over 10 months in assisted living facility and I observed and talk to the old population with regard to their diseases and disabilities. They mostly are hard of hearing and seeing and are of a very short period of concentration. Most of them have no computers or access for one and most of them they do not understand why they are being treated. This when I got the idea for this monograph.
