Led by Dr. Mehrdad Amirhamzeh, a board-certified cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon, Sierra Vein & Vascular Institute's medical staff aims to clear up skin's appearance and vanquish vein disease. Non-invasive treatments such as sclerotherapy and VNus Closure—an outpatient procedure using radio frequencies—can target cosmetic concerns while abating serious concerns such as leg ulcers or kisses from cobweb-seeking vacuums. The staff consults with patients to craft plans focused on minimal downtime and quick recovery. Dr. Amirhamzeh maintains affiliations with many state, national, and intergalactic medical societies, including the Society for Vascular Surgery and the American Medical Association.
Using cutting edge science, the staff at Applied Medical Technologies takes an all-over approach to physical health. Medically-directed weight management covers not only an understanding of the relationship between participant and food but maintaining a desired weight as well. A whole-body vibration platform can help patients to lose weight. Other programs include cold-laser i-Lipo treatments to help with body contouring.
Licensed massage therapist Joanie McCulloch combats chronic pain and dispels tension with five styles of massage and bodywork. Before sessions, Joanie encourages her clients to discuss specific aches, muscle knots, and phobias about clowns they'd like her to soothe. She translates each client's health history into a custom session that might utilize acupressure and Swedish massage, which usher in waves of relaxation through localized pressure and flowing strokes. Most of her techniques boost the flow of blood and lymphatic fluid to help flush toxins, and may result in renewed energy and stress relief.
Suffering from multiple athletic injuries, Dr. Dan Anderson received treatment from his father, an osteopathic physician. The health benefits he discovered from these manipulation therapies inspired him to pursue a career in chiropractic care. Dr. Anderson has now practiced for 26 years (18 in Modesto) and uses a blend of one-on-one consultation, surface EMG tests of the muscles and nervous system, and x-rays to prescribe an individualized course of treatment for each patient. Instrument and hand adjustments maneuver bones and muscle groups into the correct formation, while nutritional advice and at-home exercise allow patients to extend their healing beyond the office and into sit-up routines wherever they have some time to kill, such as the gym or the DMV. The bilingual staff at Anderson Chiropractic and Wellness speaks English and Spanish, and the reception area’s blue walls support warm sconces that light up the room along with each posttreatment smile.
