As the baby boomer generation has approached the age of retirement, there has been an increasing amount of interest in preventative approaches or medical therapies likely to increase the longevity or the quality of life of an aging populace. This has led to the emergence of a specialty now known as regenerative, or anti-aging, medicine. In general, anti-aging medicine is best defined as a healthcare model that utilizes ongoing research and innovative science in any manner that promotes longevity, vitality, and quality of life. Presently deemed the fastest growing medical specialty in the world, anti-aging medicine focuses on the prevention, early detection, and abatement of age-related diseases and disorders.
