Choosing the Best Facelift for You

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on May 3, 2019 3:30:44 PM

Today we are faced with an overwhelming amount of information about various non-surgical and surgical facelift procedures; many promising to make you look younger for years to come with little recovery time.  

Dr. Prashant Soni, Board Certified Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon at Advanced Specialty Care, discusses various facial rejuvenation techniques to improve different problem areas so you can make an informed choice about which procedure would work best for you.

Before delving into the specific procedures that are effective, it helps to understand the basic physiology of the aging face, specifically the area of the face below the cheekbone down to the jaw line. Facial aging in this zone leads to the drawn, tired appearance that confronts us in in the mirror and often appears worse in photographs.

Treatment Options for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Apr 26, 2019 2:44:35 PM

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common disease where a nerve in the hand becomes pinched. Typical symptoms are numbness or tingling in the hand which for many patients, can be severe enough to wake them up during the night.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is often the result of a combination of factors including:

  • A congenital predisposition - the carpal tunnel is smaller in some people than in others
  • Trauma or injury to the wrist that cause swelling, such as sprain or fracture
  • Work stress; repeated use of vibrating hand tools
  • Overactivity of the pituitary gland
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Mechanical problems in the wrist joint
  • Fluid retention during pregnancy or menopause
  • The development of a cyst or tumor in the canal 

The diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome is often clear after examination by a hand specialist and in most cases, a good look at patient history and a thorough physical examination are often all that is needed to make the diagnosis.
