Doctor of chiropractic Staci Stitt opened Unity Chiropractic Inc. to combine the healing benefits of her chiropractic services with massage therapy. Chiropractic adjustments alleviate more than two dozen ailments that affect the body, including scoliosis, whiplash, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Staci?s treatments can also help patients suffering from anxiety and allergies, among many other ailments. Treatments can be coupled with massages from the on-site massage therapist, who works out deep-seated knots known to cause chronic pain or use by sailors to tie up their boats.
After mitts emerge from a mineral-packed paraffin dip, the seasoned digit decorators at London Styling Shoppe and Spa trims, shapes, and buffs nails to prepare them for a smoothly layered lacquer. Patrons snuggle into heated, massaging pedicure chairs while soaking tootsies in a warm bath before they marinate in a moisturizing mask. Cuticles then yield to the touch of the technicians, who ensure that keratin canvases are prepared for tiny portraits of Harriet Beecher Stowe stenciled in bright hues.
The doctors at Advanced Vein Center specialize in minimally invasive surgery, phlebology, and interventional radiology, making them a trusted team for vanquishing spider veins, varicose vessels, and Trivial Pursuit opponents. They employ a trio of techniques when battling vascular conditions: noninvasive laser therapies, sclerotherapy injections, and radio-frequency powered VNUS ClosureFast. To ensure patients know which treatment is right for them, the doctors offer free vein screenings at all of their locations.
Dr. Carl Medgaus boasts more than 30 years of dental diligence using state-of-the-art technology and advanced dental techniques to care for teeth alongside his talented team. A thorough exam and x-rays analyze maw mashers to help identify dental flaws before a systematic scrub washes away grill grime and leaves teeth squeaky clean. After exams, an hour of teeth whitening on both arches can brighten smiles between 7–15 shades and provide instant, long-lasting results. The whole process will leave you with the shining grin of an open-mouthed walk through an automated car wash, but with less exposure on the local news.
Pittsburgh Vein Center's Dr. Mario Plaza-Ponte is a board-certified phlebologist, a vein specialist who in the last two years has performed more than 1,500 procedures designed to reduce varicose veins and other symptoms of venous reflux disease. To alleviate small spider veins and medium-size reticular veins etched across the legs, Dr. Plaza-Ponte first conducts a clinical evaluation, a Cosmo magazine survey, and a duplex ultrasound. If the doctor deems the patient eligible, he then employs a minimally invasive sclerotherapy treatment. The procedure uses a tiny needle to inject a sclerosant solution that can dissolve the visible vein so it is reabsorbed into the body, like a dodge-ball warrior whose teammate repatriates him from the sidelines with a caught ball.
Twenty years ago, the founders of Med Health Services were fraught with frustration. Avoidable health emergencies such as strokes and heart attacks were killing too many people nationwide. They pondered how to shift medicine's emphasis from treatment of acute symptoms to disease prevention and early detection. Their answer was an OSHA-certified outpatient facility that partners with physicians to perform diagnostic medical tests.
Today, at more than 50 area locations, Med Health Services’ team of pathologists, radiologists, and cardiologists addresses problems plaguing the American health-care system. Many patients undergo expensive tests at hospitals when they're already very sick, and many doctors don't have the right equipment to perform these tests in their offices. By taking some of these tests out of the hospital, Med Health Services helps doctors and patients catch serious problems in their early stages. Appointments are easy to schedule, and results turn around quickly, like a somersaulting carousel.
Assessments range from ultrasounds and x-rays to blood and nerve-conduction tests. Board-certified physicians and registered technologists perform the tests and analyze the results to ensure accuracy and peace of mind. To make the tests as accessible as possible, Med Health Services works with a wide range of health plans and Medicare providers.
