5 More Medical Treatment Breakthroughs Discovered in The 1990’s

Blog Category:
Comments (0)

These 5 medical inventions arrived in treatment in the decade between 1989 and 2000, what we call the 1990’s. The 1990’s live on in memory on account of the rock and roll legends such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Radiohead or Nine Inch Nails, but these medical advances are “rock stars” in the field of medicine and science.




1. 1990                    Gamow bag (inflatable bag for treating altitude sickness)

2. 1992                    Vaccine for Hepatitis C

3. 1992                    Smart Pill (tiny camera on a pill)

4. 1994                    Radiosurgery (for epilepsy and malignant tumors)

5. 1998                    Lyme Disease Vaccine

Think about it. If you were born earlier, and developed a condition before 1989, none of these devices or medications would have been available to you.

Know a friend who has a treatment with any of these medicines or devices?  Share this article with him on Facebook so he can get an idea how long the treatment has been available.
