Board-certified physician Dr. Wade L. Banker knows a thing or two about vascular and interventional procedures. He was an interventional radiologist at both Cleveland Clinic and Metro Health and Chief of Vascular/Interventional at Mississippi Medical Center. At Luxe Laser Vein & Body Center, he and his team use both their experience and the latest technology to beautify their clients. They use the Cynosure Elite MPX laser to remove varicose veins and hair, the Smartlipo laser to evict fat cells, and the Revlite laser to erase embarrassing tattoos, such as a dragon breathing your social security number in flames. They also utilize traditional spa techniques, performing facials, microdermabrasions, and peels.
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.
An affordable alternative to the emergency room, Great Lakes Urgent Care is a place where patients with non-life-threatening conditions can walk in and expect top-notch treatment from medical professionals. Unlike the family doctor, Great Lakes doesn't require appointments, and unlike the ER, there's no fighting over who gets the choose the radio station in the lobby. Just stroll in any time from morning until 8 p.m. on weekdays (and until 2 p.m. on weekends) to receive care. The medics here are trained to handle issues ranging from flu symptoms to broken bones, and they also offer physicals and lab testing. In addition, they offer a $69 prompt option as well.
