The podiatrists at Advanced Footcare, led by Dr. Charles Mutschler, Dr. Harold Reinhartz, and Dr. Vann Johnson, treat the foot and ankle ailments of athletes, children, and seniors with a combination of advanced technology and manual healing. When addressing issues such as tendon injuries and muscle pain, the doctors use shockwave therapy to stimulate the body’s self-healing mechanisms. Lasers are used to eliminate foot fungus and erase unwanted spider veins while keeping healthy tissue intact.
In addition to more futuristic treatments, the team also performs surgeries and prescribes medication and devices. Hands-on techniques can ease pain from sports practices or everyday refrigerator-lifting, such as active-release therapy, which addresses the internal scar tissue that binds free-moving muscles.
Dr. DiGeronimo views himself as an artist, and his cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries as his works of art. He cut his teeth training under Dr. Ralph Millard—considered by many plastic surgeons to be the father of modern plastic surgery—and has perfected his craft over the course of more than 30 years and thousands of procedures. He and his staff practice their trade in two pristine operating rooms, performing procedures that span the whole body, from face lifts and Botox injections to breast augmentation and liposuction. He also stays abreast of current aesthetic technological advances, as evidenced by his noninvasive laser treatments that include skin resurfacing and Thermage, which—like crying at the sight of a clown—make clients appear younger.
All plastic surgeons work to achieve their clients’ aesthetic goals. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Adam J. Rubinstein, however, goes one step further. He combines surgical and nonsurgical procedures with a unique holistic approach to promote his patients' overall wellness just as much as their exterior appearance. Whether preparing to perform liposuction, a Botox injection, or laser skin resurfacing, he and his team start with a consultation, ensuring the process is outlined and any questions have been answered. Additional thoughtful touches, such as complimentary meetings with nutritionists, help patients continue their transformations after they’ve left the clinic. When procedures are finished, the staff minimizes recovery time with herbal supplements and written prescriptions for chicken noodle soup.
Following a water- skiing accident, they came back. The migraines that had plagued Doctor of Chiropractic Todd Narson since he was 11 had returned with a vengeance. Back then, he and his parents had tried everything to alleviate them, consulting with countless specialists but it wasn’t until he visited his father’s chiropractor that Dr. Todd found relief. So when the headaches came back, he went right to the chiropractor’s office. These experiences eventually inspired him to go to chiropractic school himself, and open Miami Beach Family & Sports Chiropractic Center with his wife in 1993.
Dr. Todd earned a specialty in sports medicine that enables him to not only treat everyday pain and headaches, but also to relieve sports-related injuries, such as golfer’s elbow, rotator cuff issues, and plantar fasciitis caused by stomping too hard on the bleachers when the home team wins. His treatment often help patients avoid surgery, and other times, his close relationships with medical doctors enable him to help patients during post-surgery recovery.
He and his wife, Dr. Corey, lead their center’s team in delivering a range of wellness services, not just chiropractic care. Nutritional advice helps patients achieve their best health through making better diet choices, and massage therapy can treat musculoskeletal pain, improve circulation, and reduce spasms that can cause people to spontaneously pop and lock while walking to work.
For the past 14 years, Dr. Craig Stam’s career has centered around his efforts to keep his clients’ feet healthy and pain-free. He is board-certified, and specializes in using laser technology to treat a variety of ailments. With precisely aimed photons, Dr. Stam can target toenail fungus, zap warts, treat inflammation, and ease foot and leg pain. In addition to dealing with common foot problems, such as sports injuries and bunions, he also renders more cosmetic treatments that include removing spider veins and using beauty injections to ameliorate overly sweaty feet.
Spread across three Miami-area offices, Vanidades Cosmetic Surgery boasts a medical staff that includes nine MDs, whose wealth of knowledge guides staff members in both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. In many treatments, doctors use lasers to perform everything from liposuction to hair removal to skin rejuvenation. To choose the right procedure, which may also include injectables such as fat grafting, the staff equips clients with an online animations library that displays the benefits of surgeries performed on all of Hollywood's most popular cartoons.
