Lege artis - Latin expression meaning "according to the law of the art."

The art in this case is medicine. Indeed, the expression comes from medical lingo, though it is no longer restricted to it.

Used as an adjective, lege artis describes something that is genuine, real, true, reliable, proven, tested, not fake, not made-up, not assumed, not placebo, not quack.
