Doctor of Chiropractic Luell sees the body as a single harmonious unit that's built to heal itself, so the doctor's role is simply to trigger those self-healing mechanisms. Noninvasive adjustments encourage healthier brain-body communication by nudging vertebrae away from nerve tissue and internal self-destruct buttons. The resulting balance helps the body overcome a range of ailments, such as back pain, headaches, and digestive issues.
Dr. M. Farooq Ashraf mastered the excimer laser as a member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins University, and he now wields the ultramodern tool as he adds to his career tally of more than 35,000 LASIK procedures. As founder and medical director of Atlanta Vision Institute, he draws upon his skills as a board-certified ophthalmologist to correct nearsighted, farsighted, and astigmatic vision with refractive surgery. In addition to giving the gift of sight, Dr. Ashraf gives back to the community by supporting local charities and providing discounted services to financially strapped Cyclopes.
Spider veins are not only a reason to avoid wearing shorts—they can be a symptom of more sinister circulatory problems. That’s why Dr. Ian Katz, a board-certified physician specializing in phlebology and sclerotherapy, offers three types of vein treatments, all of which help prevent future circulatory problems and remedy the appearance of spider and varicose veins. The first option is surgical removal, which Dr. Katz performs so precisely that patients typically don't even need stitches. Then there's sclerotherapy, the injection of a fluid that causes the vein to collapse and be absorbed back into the body. But perhaps the most intriguing technique—and Dr. Katz's specialty—is the VNUS closure procedure. The heat that this treatment's radiofrequency catheter generates closes off spider and varicose veins, reducing their exterior appearance and rerouting the blood they carry to healthier veins. The recovery process is simple; after the outpatient procedure, patients return to their normal routines within one to two days, and they see results after as little as one treatment. Following any of these treatments, patients may need to wear compression stockings for a time, but fortunately they don't have to resort to extreme measures, such as eating an apple every day.
The doctors at Tritt Aesthetic & Plastic Center—the beauty branch of Atlanta ENT's medical practice—help to enhance their patients' looks with an arsenal of skin treatments, hair-removal services, and cosmetic surgery. Noninvasive solutions such as microdermabrasion, facial fillers, and cellulite reduction work to minimize dermal imperfections such as wrinkles, redness, and reptilian scales, where as rhinoplasty imbues noses with aesthetic balance. Their waxing sessions leave skin smooth and bare for weeks on end, and laser hair removal yields even longer-lasting results.
