After graduating from the Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery, North Shore Foot and Ankle’s Dr. Eliot G. Sherr earned board certifications in foot surgery, orthopedics, and primary podiatric medicine. Today, Dr. Sherr, who is a fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, stays current with continuing education as he tunes up feet and ankles with preventive podiatric care, sports medicine, and surgical procedures. In addition to his podiatric services, Dr. Sherr performs a range of aesthetic laser treatments with Fontona’s laser, as well as beauty services ranging from Botox to chemical peels.
The staff of board-certified vascular avengers at VeinSolutions tailor their cosmetic procedures to each patient's individual needs, refurbishing frowning frontispieces and minimizing the appearance of unsightly spider veins. Sclerotherapy treatments take place in a private, comfortable office; doctors employ a very fine needle to inject 18 cc's of an FDA-approved solution into the voracious vein and start the divorce proceedings. Following the injection, legs don a pair of compression hose for several days, which help fuse the damaged vein walls and reassure nervous gams with a round-the-clock bear hug. Over time, the appearance of affronting arachno-capillaries diminishes as the body reabsorbs them. With little to no down time, clients can typically resume their normal day-to-day activities right away, although heavy exercise and prolonged sitting, standing, or crawling to avoid unfriendly fire is discouraged for the first three days post-treatment.
“It’s the challenging fits—either spectacles or contact lenses—that drive me," writes optician John Parrelli on his website. Since opening his first shop in 1978, these challenges have included cataract sufferers who were left without binocular vision following surgery. Parrelli and his team of lens specialists experimented with different materials, designs, and indices of refraction until they could fabricate a lens thin and strong enough to restore these patients’ sight.
Today, Parrelli Optical has grown to six locations, where optometrists inspect patients' vision with a comprehensive, 15-point eye-health assessment and complete visual analysis. Through digital corneal photography, they're able to diagnose corneal disease and increase the precision and comfort of prescriptions. The locations also host a wide selection of designer frames, ideal for experimenting with different styles, such as wearing 20 frames at once.
Dr. Martin E. Cutler’s more than 30 year career is defined by his mastery of new technology. In the ‘70s, he was one of the first area doctors to offer no-stitch cataract lens replacement. Today, he helps patients reduce their dependence on glasses with LASIK and makes reading glasses obsolete with conductive keratoplasty, the first FDA-approved procedure that sharpens one’s up-close vision and makes Moby Dick easier to understand.
Alongside Dr. Cutler’s opthalmology center stands a medical spa staffed by licensed aestheticians. With the aid of the Palomar StarLux system, they harness the power of intense pulse light to oust unwanted fuzz from anywhere on the body. They also pair facials with botanical Nelly de Vuyst products and deep-clean pores with PCA chemical peels, and offer free skin analyses to help patients find the best course of treatment or the best way to flaunt a Jay Leno–shaped birthmark.
