What Is Longevity Medicine?
Longevity medicine at Skypark Preferred Family Care focuses on three main goals: (1) preserving cognitive function; (2) maintaining muscle mass, balance and stability; and (3) optimizing well-being by encouraging stress reduction, personal connections and emotional resilience. Our doctors teach you how to minimize the risk of avoidable diseases and live as long as you possibly can in a healthy way. Our goal is to expand your healthspan, not just your lifespan. You’ve probably seen a 70-year-old person who looks like they are 50 and a 50-year-old person who looks like they are 70. We want to help you stay vital and avoid frailty through a variety of mechanisms. Prevention of the onset of diseases that come with aging is the key to longevity medicine. That’s why modern medicine and our physicians focus on prevention by stressing screening tests, smoking cessation, weight control, healthy diet, regular exercise, immunization and other proven interventions.
Longevity medicine at Skypark Preferred Family Care is about doctors and patients sharing responsibility for patients’ health and working together as a team to prevent or ameliorate health problems that can not only shorten your life but diminish your quality of life, as well. Our doctors have the most up-to-date, accurate information about science- and evidence-based preventive medicine. We know what works to help you live a long, healthy life.
