Your case is unique, which means your treatment will be designed around your needs. Often we will recommend treatments based on best practices that have worked for other patients, consideration of your specific illness, the results of any tests done, as well as your personal preferences.
We provide treatments for these general conditions:
An abscess is an enclosed collection of pus in tissues, organs, or confined spaces in the body. An abscess is a sign of infection and is usually swollen and inflamed. We can irrigate and drain some abscesses in-office.
Protect yourself against the seasonal flu by following the same advice you followed last year: get vaccinated. Everyone who is at least six-months-old should get a flu vaccine this season.
High blood pressure
Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure is defined as a blood pressure of 140/90 or higher. Hypertension usually has no symptoms. It can harm the arteries and increase the risk of stroke, heart attack, kidney failure, and blindness.
Cholesterol is a type of fat (lipid) that the body needs for many important functions, such as producing new cells. High cholesterol increases the risk of developing heart disease and stroke.
Urinary tract infections
Urinary tract infections describe a health problem that results from a bacterial infection along the urinary tract. An infection occurs when microorganisms, usually bacteria from the digestive tract, cling to the opening of the urethra, travel up into the bladder and/or kidney, and begin to multiply.
Casting and splinting
Casts and splints hold a broken bone in place as it heals. Casts also help to prevent or decrease muscle contractions, and are effective at providing immobilization, especially after surgery.
Also known as joint aspiration, joint drainage refers to the removal of fluid from the space around a joint using a needle and syringe.
Joint or bursa injections
A bursa is a closed, fluid-filled sac that functions as a cushion and gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues of the body.
