Anti-Aging Medicine


1.  What is anti-aging medicine?


Anti-aging is a clinical/medical specialty and field of scientific research that focuses on the prevention, early detection, treatment, and reversal of aging-related decline using  scientifically-based medical interventions administered by highly trained anti-aging physicians or health professionals. Anti-aging medical care is a vitally important new model for health care that reaches beyond the concept of preventive care to enhance the quality of life while increasing lifespan. The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine was established in 1997 as a professional physician certification and review board and it currently represents over 12,000 physicians, scientists and health professionals from more than 70 countries.


2.  How does anti-aging medicine differ from geriatrics?

Though both medical specialties focus on aging-related diseases, the treatment methodology is quite different.  Geriatrics is a branch of internal medicine that cares for elderly patients primarily by treating the symptoms of the diseases to make the loss of function and discomfort more tolerable. The goal of anti-aging medicine is to prevent symptoms and loss of function through testing, regular monitoring, medical interventions, and lifestyle modifications.
