‘Bionic’ technology more fact than fiction

Galveston County Daily News, July 20, 2010

In his weekly column, UTMB’s Dr. Michael Warren explores ‘bionic’ technology. “Artificial body parts are becoming more and more readily available. In fact, you may have a friend or relative with an artificial hip, knee, heart valve or eye lens. It’s difficult to compile an accurate listing of all the available artificial body parts. … In the future, the sky (in combination with funding sources) is the limit. I’m not willing to estimate how far this science will go, nor its implications, but I will predict that many of us, or our children, will be faced with decisions involving artificial organs and limbs.”
