Wellness and Surgery Introduction


 

We would like to introduce you to our practice, Wellness and Surgery.

At Wellness and Surgery, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with symptoms including:

  • Tired or Heavy Legs 
  • Restless Legs 
  • Leg Cramps or Charley Horses 
  • Leg Swelling 
  • Back / Hip/ Knee Pain 
  • Leg or Calf Pain 
  • Foot Pain 
  • Sciatica 
  • Varicose or Spider Veins

Many people are unaware that blood flow, circulation, and vessel dilation are some of the common causes of these symptoms. 

Some of the common misconceptions regarding blood flow, circulation and vessel dilation are:

 1. Vessel disease is only an elderly issue

FALSE - Insufficiency often starts in our 20s and 30s and progresses over time. 

2. Patients must see varicose vessels to have insufficiency

FALSE – Vessels do not have to be visualized on the surface and are usually only visualized on ultrasound.

3. Vessel disease only happens in women

FALSE – Vessel insufficiency is found equally in both males and females.

4. Radiology centers and hospitals will help find vessel insufficiency

FALSE – Ultrasounds done at these places ONLY look for blood clots, not other forms of vessel disease. Our ultrasounds done in the office, look for BOTH.

5. Vessel disease is only a cosmetic issue

FALSE – Although vessel disease can lead to cosmetic issues, they mostly present as leg pain, fatigue, cramping, etc., without any cosmetic signs.

We are able to diagnose these conditions with a noninvasive lower extremity mapping study done in the office. These studies are extremely accurate and take less than 10 minutes to perform.

Based on the findings, we are also able to offer different treatment options which include options that can permanently treat the symptoms and are covered by insurance.

We also can offer IV therapy, weight loss options including Bariatric Surgery, sleep studies and the treatment of sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy.

We accept most PPO insurances including:

  • Empire Plan/ NYSHIP
  • United Healthcare
  • Aetna
  • Cigna
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield

We have multiple office locations in New York and New Jersey including our main office in Ardsley, New York. Please feel free to contact our office for any questions.

We look forward to helping!

Sincerely,


Dr Jonathan Arad
