    Horseback Riding After a Hip Replacement

    Susan Mong loves riding her horse. She’s been riding for more than 50 years. A few years ago, she broke her hip while riding and had to have screws implanted. This led to osteoarthritis and other complications.

    Eventually, the pain got so bad that Susan couldn’t ride. She searched online to see where doctors themselves go for hip issues, and UVA came up. She made an appointment with orthopedic surgeon Quanjun Cui, MD

    “I met Dr. Cui and we had a nice conversation,” Susan says. “I thought, well, I’m in good hands so I’m going through with this.” 

    Her biggest question: When could she ride again?

    Gene May Offer Way to Block Aging’s Effects

    For years, scientists thought the Oct4 gene did nothing in the human body after prenatal development. It turns out they were wrong.

    The gene may actually hold the secret to reversing some effects of aging.

    UVA researchers have found the gene helps prevent heart attacks and strokes, which often occur when plaque that builds up inside our blood vessels ruptures. The gene creates protective caps inside the plaque, so the plaque is less likely to burst. It also enables cells that don't normally move to migrate into the protective caps.

    This knowledge opens the door to develop new drugs that prevent heart attacks and strokes. Manipulating the gene’s expression might also block age-related decline in the body, helping it to better heal itself and repair wounds.

    Deb Owens: Giving Back After Stroke Scare

    Deb Owens is a neonatal nurse practitioner at UVA Medical Center. In the spring of 2015, she went home with a headache, something she describes as fairly typical. She became concerned when the headache lingered for several days. She also noticed her eyelid drooping.

    After meeting with a neuro-ophthalmologist, Owens was told she was likely having a stroke. Andrew Southerland, MD, diagnosed Owens with a carotid artery dissection, an uncommon condition that is often found in young people who suffer from stroke.

    Owens describes herself as lucky. After receiving stellar treatment at UVA Stroke Center, she decided to give back. She now hosts fundraisers to raise money for stroke research.
