There are many reasons a person might need physical therapy. From postinjury rehab and stroke recovery to arthritis management and sports-performance enhancement, the facilities at PT Hawaii are well equipped to handle a wide range of neuromusculoskeletal maladies. Within the comfort of a private treatment room, massage therapists knead aching muscles and improve range of motion in stiff joints. The reduced gravitational force and bumped-up buoyancy of the 100,000-gallon saltwater AquaCare pool help people improve their Marco Polo technique while protecting injured parts from further damage.
Dr. Michael A. McMann's colleagues trust his skills—so much so that they turn up in his surgical suite, ready for him to perform LASIK on their own eyes. It’s likely because Dr. McMann's surgical logbook lists more than 5,000 procedures and counting, with much of that patient pool consisting of other physicians, their spouses, and members of the military. It also might have something to do with his guarantee of 20/20 vision or your money or prized goat back.
Before assuming his role as founder and medical director of McMann Eye Institute, Dr. McMann obtained his degree from the University of Chicago's Pritzker School of Medicine and served for eight years in the US Army Medical Corps as a physician and eye doctor.
Helmed by a registered nurse with more than 25 years of experience greeting newborns as a professional in the OB field, First Look Sonogram Hawaii's team of certified technicians introduces parents-to-be to their burgeoning offspring using an advanced General Electric Voluvision 730 sonogram machine. The routinely calibrated instrument safely scans rotund bellies, rendering high-quality 3-D and 4-D snapshots in both color and black-and-white of the developing infant as he or she mouths the lyrics to "Happy Birthday to You." The expert techs can determine the baby's gender while confirming a heartbeat, amniotic fluid, and number of babies nestled inside. Adding permanence to the experience, recordings of the session are available on DVD and the accommodating staff can even craft a sonogram music video from the footage.
At Hawaii Plastic Surgery Associates' multiple locations, an affable staff of medical aestheticians, nurse aids, and massage therapists takes cues from board-certified plastic surgeons while administering beauty treatments and sigh-inducing spa services for the body and skin. Drs. Todd Mirzai and Bao Phan cushion surgical procedures with IV-based anesthesia and complimentary house calls at each office's private recovery bungalows. The team also specializes in a variety of noninvasive cosmetic procedures, such as Botox injections, microdermabrasion, oxygen facials, and prop-mustache removal. Staff members go to great lengths to ensure clients' comfort, offering airport pickup and drop-off, grocery-store runs, and medical sitters.
The physicians at Natural Wellness Center practice naturopathic medicine, which blends centuries-old remedies with modern medical technology. This translates into everything from detoxifying cleanses to IV infusions and hormone-replacement therapy. Through their treatments, the staff aims to both treat a number of chronic conditions, including allergies, digestive issues, and musculoskeletal problems, and prevent disorders from occurring in the first place.
