New Advancement Allows for Septoplasty Procedure with Minimal Downtime

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Dr. Aaron Rogers and Advanced Ear Nose & Throat Associates, a leading Atlanta-based Otolaryngology medical practice, announces further advancement in office-based nasal surgery. New techniques allow for a full spectrum of corrective nasal surgery to now be done in the office with just minimal recovery.

The medical industry is constantly evolving with new techniques and technologies that improve the recovery process and results for patients. One of the newest advancements to hit the market is the development of an incisionless septoplasty that is minimally invasive and has a much faster recovery period than traditional septoplasty procedures. Dr. Aaron Rogers, based in the Metro Atlanta Area, has perfected this technique in order to help patients with nasal allergies, sinus infections and other nasal problems.

No-Scalpel septoplasty is a new procedure that is performed under local anesthesia utilizing the the Acclarent Relieva TRACT(R) device. The procedure utilizes pressurized inflatable dilators to remodel the nasal septal spurs and deflection that lead to nasal blockage. It takes just a few minutes, as opposed to traditional septoplasty procedures that require general anesthesia and are performed over the course of a few hours in an operating room.

The no-scalpel technique can be performed alongside other nasal procedures including balloon sinuplasty, turbinate reduction or nasal valve collapse repair. This procedure is recommended for adults who have nasal congestion or suffer from allergies, as well as patients who have had prior septoplasty but a residual spur.

One of the most attractive benefits of this treatment is the fast recovery period that lasts just a couple of days with mild discomfort and minimal bleeding. Patients can go to work the following day and costs are lower than traditional surgeries because anesthesiology and facility costs are avoided.

Dr. Rogers of Advanced Ear, Nose and Throat Associates is one of the first doctors in the Atlanta area to offer this new advanced technique. He has seen firsthand the increased benefits it provides to patients.

According to Dr. Rogers, "Treating deviated septum in the office is finally a practical reality, opening to doors to comfortable and comprehensive in-office nasal surgery."

Switzerland-based Brain Assessment Research Center (BrainARC-Chur) launches US division (BrainARC-America) headed by leading Neuroscience experts

BOSTON, Mass. -- Brain ARC Chur Switzerland partners with Sadar Psychological Services (Philadelphia) and Boston NeuroDynamics (Boston) to launch Brain ARC America, in order to bring more cutting edge evaluations to improve treatment for common brain disorders such as ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression, age-related memory loss, autism, chronic pain/migraines, epilepsy, sleep disorders and a myriad of other issues such as including how to improve your brain to increase its efficiency in everyday life.

HBImed AG has been an industry leader in clinical brain research for over a decade and provides medical-psychological services in particular by supporting brain research diagnostics with therapeutic advice in the context of various brain dysfunctions. They have set forth industry challenging standards by actually measuring the brain's activity and comparing it to a sophisticated, FDA approved database which is the most thorough and comprehensive aggregate databank of its kind.

Both Boston Neurodynamics and Sadar Psychological Services have been using this neuroscience research to successfully determine the best treatments since HBImed AG was founded. Because of their collective expertise in implementing the BrainARC system in their respective practices, Drs. Sadar, Martinez and Morales have been exclusively selected to herald in the expansion and create BrainARC-America.

BrainARC-America will capitalize on the vast amount of continuing research, their breadth and depth of experiences within the mental health field, coupled with each other's unique yet complimentary backgrounds in order to develop individualized brain assessments in order to ascertain how each person's brain is functioning in order to improve their quality of life.

Brain ARC-America principles are Diana Martinez, MD, MSc, PhD, Board Certified in Neurofeedback, Angelika Y. Sadar, MA-Clinical Psychology, Board Certified in Neurofeedback and Heart Rate Variability, Leon Morales-Quezada, MD, MSc, PhD, MPH, and Mitchell Sadar, M.A., PhD., Board Certified in Neurofeedback and Heart Rate Variability.

Andreas Müller of BrainARC-Chur and HBImed Brain Diagnostics states "BrainARC-Chur, along with HBImed AG is happy to partner with BrainARC-America. It has been our goal to introduce this highly researched and evidence based method that helps to understand the individual's brain functioning to develop an individualized treatment plan to the United States for quite some time and finally we have the right leaders."

"We are pioneers in helping people improve their lives by measuring objectively how their brain functions so that the best individualized treatments can be offered. This is in contrast to the more traditional methods of diagnosing based on just patient report and observed symptoms," said Dina Martinez.

By objectively measuring biomarkers in the brain, we are able to add to the traditional, limited methods of clinical observation. As a result, the patient receives validation of the source of their behavioral distress. Very often, when given results, parents will comment.

"This is what I was waiting for. This is the first time I have received an explanation of what is going on in my child's brain. Now our family has hope for our child's future," said Angelika Sadar.

"This evaluation process can help identify biomarkers that can guide the prescribing of medication to decrease the number of children who are over medicated or experience the negative side effects of medications unnecessarily," said Mitchell Sadar.

"BrainARC US neurophysiological and cognitive evaluations compliment traditional medical diagnostic tools helping clinicians to develop adequate therapeutic interventions," said Leon Morales.

Study Identifies Boston’s Top-Rated Plastic Surgeons

BOSTON, Mass. -- An analysis of multiple online rating sources has shed light as to whom Boston-area plastic surgical patients consider the area's top plastic surgeon. According to actual patient ratings gathered from five different rating platforms, Dr. Jeffery Spiegel, of The Spiegel Center, was ranked as the area's top plastic surgeon, receiving more five-star ratings from his patients than any other plastic surgeon.

The study, conducted by John C. Anderson Ph.D., a former professor of management at UCLA and consultant in the plastic surgery industry, compiled patient ratings from five key platforms-Google, Facebook, RealSelf, Vitals.com, and RateMD.com, looking specifically at which physicians had received five-star ratings from patients, and for which procedures.

Dr. Spiegel received 221 five-star ratings. The next surgeon with the most five-star ratings, Dr. Jeffrey Darrow, earned 125 top marks from his patients. Others, with fewer top marks, included Boston plastic surgeons Dr. Sean Doherty, Dr. Richard Bartlett, Dr. Samuel Lin, Dr. George Volpe, Dr. Leonard Miller, Dr. Summer Slavin, and Dr. Joseph Russo.

The number of five-star reviews earned by the surgeons ranged from 12 to 221.

In addition, the study looked at which procedures earned the doctors the most top reviews. These tended to flow along the lines of each practice's specialty. Dr. Spiegel, for example, was ranked highest in facial plastic surgery (rhinoplasties, face lifts, injectables, blepharoplasties, and facial feminization surgeries).

Other surgeons were noted for their skills in breast augmentation and reduction, injectables, rhinoplasty, and gynecomastia.

Patient ratings are one indicator of physician quality along with board certification, academic credentials, and experience.

Atlantic Coast Surgical Suites performs first navigated reverse total shoulder at an ambulatory surgery center in New England

SEABROOK, N.H. -- Atlantic Coast Surgical Suites is an ambulatory surgery center designed for, and specializing in, outpatient joint replacement surgery. Today, Dr. Moby Parsons of The Knee, Hip and Shoulder Center performed the first outpatient reverse shoulder replacement here using the Exactech GPS (Guided Personalized Surgery) preoperative planning and navigation system.

According to Parsons, "There are very few centers around the country offering surgical navigation for shoulder replacement at an outpatient surgery center. This is the first such case in New England."

Dr. Parsons is one of the design surgeons for the Exactech GPS system. A preoperative CT scan provides a detailed 3D picture of the patient's arthritic shoulder. Images are then imported into a planning software that allows the surgeon to virtually perform the operation, selecting the right implants and their optimal position and orientation relative to the patient's individual anatomy. This plan can then be taken into the operating room where special instruments with trackers synced to a computer and camera system allow real time navigation of the surgical plan.

"Arthritis causes wear and erosion of the socket bone. Our goal during surgery is to restore patient anatomy as best we can. Planning and navigation substantially improve our accuracy compared to conventional instruments," Parsons notes.

Parsons, along with several other design surgeons and engineers, has done extensive research and development on surgical navigation in shoulder replacement and has been using this technology for almost 2 years since it became commercially available. Parsons was also the first surgeon in New Hampshire to perform a reverse shoulder replacement in 2004 and was recently inducted into the American Shoulder and Elbow surgeons, recognizing his expertise in shoulder surgery.

Advances in patient preparation, pain management, anesthetic techniques and surgical techniques now allow many patients to go home the same day as their joint replacement surgery. "Recovery in the comfort of home is both safe and highly satisfying for patients," Parsons notes.

"Our ambulatory surgery center specializes in orthopedic procedures with a highly dedicated staff who focus on same-day care day in and day out. Experience and expertise really matter to do this well. We are extremely fortunate to have a center like Atlantic Coast Surgical Suites where we can deliver high quality outpatient joint replacement."

Local Orthopaedic Surgeon to Discuss Advancements in Shoulder Replacement on the World Stage

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. -- Dr. Moby Parsons, a joint replacement specialist at the Knee, Hip and Shoulder Center in Portsmouth, N.H., helped to pioneer a surgical navigation tool that is now being widely used around the world to improve the results of shoulder replacement. Termed GPS for Guided Personalized Surgery, this technology allows the shoulder surgeon to preoperatively plan the operation on a computer system and then recreate that plan with great accuracy using intelligent surgical instruments that can link the patient's anatomy to the preoperative imaging.

The shoulder is a highly complex joint that undergoes wear and erosion from arthritis and tendon tears. Prior studies have demonstrated that when surgeons can better recreate a patient's native anatomy during reconstructive surgery, outcomes are improved in terms of range of motion, function and implant longevity.

"GPS effectively gives us 3-dimensional, x-ray vision and greatly improves our ability to restore normal anatomy," said Parsons, who has worked extensively with Exactech, Inc. in Gainesville, Fla. to bring this technology into the operating room.

Parsons, along with an international team of surgeons and engineers, helped to develop and validate the GPS system. Recently Parsons has worked with his team to research and refine standards in the preoperative planning process that may lead to better shoulder function, lower complications and improved implant durability.

"Comparing the way different surgeons approach the same case reveals that there is currently a lack on consensus about what is the ideal reconstruction for any given shoulder," Parsons notes. His research aims to narrow the range of acceptable solutions to achieve greater precision during shoulder replacement.

Parsons' research was recently selected for presentation at the International Congress for Shoulder and Elbow Surgery this September in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Hosted every 3 years, this is the largest gathering of shoulder experts in the world and provides an international stage for the team's work. "The acceptance of our study points to the widespread interest that surgeons have in these enabling technologies. We are honored to present our results and hope we can translate this work into improved standards for shoulder replacement in the future."

Parsons and the GPS Design Team continue to advance the capabilities of this system through ongoing research and development. "We have made a substantial leap forward over the last 3 years, but there is much left to learn and a tremendous opportunity to leverage technological innovations in the operating environment for the benefit of better surgical results."

Dr. Parsons performed a fellowship in shoulder surgery under famed, shoulder replacement pioneer Dr. Frederick Matsen. He is a founding member of the New England Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons where he recently hosted a panel discussion on computer-assisted preoperative planning. He is also a member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons. His prior research has won the prestigious Charles Neer Award for excellence in clinical outcomes studies. He will also be presenting results of clinical research on the reverse shoulder replacement at this year's American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons annual meeting in Las Vegas, Nev.

He currently operates at Portsmouth Regional Hospital in Portsmouth, N.H., Wentworth Douglass Hospital in Dover, N.H. and Atlantic Coast Surgical Suites in Seabrook, N.H.
