If board-certified eye surgeon Dr. Paul Cutarelli kept a physical tally of all the LASIK and PRK procedures he has performed, he would probably be nearing the end of a comically lengthy scroll. That’s because he’s been at the helm of more than 60,000 of these procedures, which are designed to sharpen vision in minutes with the help of a precise laser and wavefront computer technology that determines exactly where to shape the cornea. This former resident of the world-renowned Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins Hospital pairs his most repeated procedure with a handful of other vision-correcting services. He can trade a scarred cornea for a new one and remove blurring cataracts. He can also insert a lens behind the iris to crystallize vision, an alternative for patients who can’t get LASIK or who refuse to hang magnifying glasses from each eyebrow.
Dr. Craig Burns takes a methodical approach to chiropractic care. Before administering any of his signature adjustments, he establishes what the patient's spine should look like. This technique, called clinical biomechanics of posture, helps him pinpoint any abnormalities in the discs that can lead to headaches, dizziness, and back pain. He then tailors a treatment to gently nudge the discs into healthier positions, and helps manage pain with acupuncture and medical-grade massage.

Ansley Watson first discovered the rehabilitative power of Pilates in 1998 after a car accident laid her low. The simple exercises helped her rebuild flexibility and shore up weakened muscles. In fact, Her introduction to Pilates was so life changing that she decided to become a certified Pilates instructor.
