A biopsy is a procedure to remove a piece of tissue or a sample of cells from your body so that it can be analyzed in a laboratory. If you're experiencing certain signs and symptoms or if your doctor has identified an area of concern, you may undergo a biopsy to determine your current condition.
The Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) is the systolic pressure at the ankle, divided by the systolic pressure at the arm. It has been shown to be a specific and sensitive metric for the diagnosis of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD). Additionally, the ABI has been shown to predict mortality and adverse cardiovascular events independent of traditional CV risk factors. The major cardiovascular societies advise measuring an ABI in every smoker over 50 years old, every diabetic over 50, and all patients over 70.
Every participant in a school sports team is required to complete a pre-participation physical examination, also called sports physicals. A sports physical allows a physician to identify any conditions that might keep the athlete out of the game or affect performance. Athletes should have a physical six weeks before the start of the sport season; however this can vary due to changing sport seasons. This timing provides an opportunity to address an existing injury or improve conditioning prior to participation in the activity.
Cryosurgery, or Cryotherapy, is a highly effective treatment for a broad range of tissue issues, such as tumors. The process uses liquid nitrogen to instantly freeze human tissue, thus killing and destroying cells upon contact. This is important when the cells being targeted are cancerous.
Skin Lesion Removal is the process of removing an abnormal growth on the skin (“skin lesion”) for either medical or cosmetic reasons. Skin lesions can include warts, moles, cancers, and skin tags. The procedure can be done to remove cancerous lesions, chronic skin irritation due to the lesion, or for cosmetic preference. Other times, our physicians will remove a skin lesion to make sure it is not cancerous, and, if it is cancerous, to prevent its spread to other parts of the body. Most procedures are not highly invasive and, frequently, can be well-tolerated by patients of any age.
