Led by Dr. Innocent Ubunama, a general vascular surgeon, the staff at Midwest Vascular & Varicose Vein Center purges legs of visible veins using one of four treatment methods. Sclerotherapy treatments flood spider veins with chemical injections that collapse the blood vessel for absorption into the body. Varicose vein treatments involve radio frequency ablation and use thermal energy to shrink vein walls and seal them closed. Alternatively, during a surgical microphlebectomy, doctors pluck more severe varicose veins from legs with a series of incisions. Patients unable to undergo these procedures can adopt lifestyle changes and wear specialized garments to prevent further damage to their venous system, a noninvasive option.

A “sexy, unrestricted, and predatory dance of sensual exchange.” For many people, the tango may seem like something only movie stars do as they swap sizzling one-liners and military secrets. But Toledo Tango Club owner Paul Tupciauskas believes that anyone can master the art of the sensual dance with the right instruction and a little practice. He should know. He spends his days not in a dance studio, but running a small software company, and pursues his passion for dancing after hours, welcoming it as an opportunity to escape the stress that comes with staring at a computer screen all day and trying to read the secrets in its eyes.
It's this personal fascination with the tango that drives Paul to share it with other everyday folks, and his step-by-step approach is designed to make its structure accessible while allowing dancers to experiment and explore the music. After introducing newcomers to open and closed embraces, he welcomes them to strut their stuff informally at after-class milongas dance parties that help them to hone their technique with or without a partner.
The art of dentistry runs in Dr. Scott S. Kelly’s blood: In 1954, his father started a dental practice, and in 1980, Dr. Kelly joined his progenitor in fighting cavities and fitting dentures. Today, Dr. Kelly presides over the practice his father started so many years ago, continuing the family tradition of taking the time to talk with each patient and performing many of the dental cleanings himself. In addition to general dentistry services, his patients can avail themselves of a full range of cosmetic offerings, such as Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments and veneers that conceal discolorations or the sheerness of ghost teeth.
After earning his DDS degree from Ohio State University, Toledo native Dr. Chad Belongea planted roots in Maumee at Arrowhead Dental. He practices family dentistry with a compassionate and gentle approach (two qualities exemplified by the time he spent providing emergency medical care in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake). Whether filling a cavity or filling gaps with dental implants, he's committed to providing the best care and keeping patients comfortable.
Patient-friendly technologies used at Arrowhead Dental include metal-free fillings and digital x-rays designed to provide comprehensive views of mouths while reducing exposure to radiation. Sedation options are available for those anxious about procedures or their tendency to break into song whenever there's a hand in their mouths. High-tech equipment for oral-cancer screenings helps the dentist catch troubling issues in their earliest stages.
