Dr. H. L. Greenberg Cares

December 30th, 2010 • by admin

“Dr. Greenberg Cares”

By Sandy Zimmerman

With the Motto, “For a Healthy and More Beautiful Life,” how can

you do better than that?

Dr. H. L. Greenberg, MD & Dermatologist

at Las Vegas Dermatology, feels, “That is what I am trying to

achieve making everybody’s life happy and hopefully more

enjoyable.

If I can help people look better and feel good, they are happier.

Before: Botox

After: Botox

When patients cry in my office saying how happy they are

because their Psoriasis has cleared up,

that their joint pain is gone, and so many other positive things.

It is a great feeling, I love what I do and feel blessed.”

Dr. Greenberg’s specialties include all type of Dermatology from

lasers, surgical, medical, to cosmetic concerns for children and

adults.

Lasers are used to remove blood vessels, brown spots, hair, and

for so many other medical problems today.

Many patients do not like to see their blood vessels showing,

which is a personal choice.

When brown spots suddenly appear due to the sun, or aging

without sun exposure, sometimes the options call for

Cryotherapy- liquid nitrogen treatment.

Dr. Greenberg advises, “Here in the desert the sun damages your

skin.  The more sun exposure the more likely that you would get

skin cancer, wrinkles or other signs of aging.

It is very important that you should be sun smart when you are

outside.

Wear protective clothing and sun screen.

I examine my patients for skin cancer and like to educate them to

watch for the a-b-c-d’s signs of Melanoma.

Look for a change in the appearance of your skin, a new growth or

sore that will not heal.

If it has an irregular border, many colors, or large diameter

then have it checked.

Protection is the key especially with young children.

A One- Stop Pain Medical Center

November 13th, 2010 • by Sandy Zimmerman

“A One Stop Pain Medical Center”

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos by Sandy Zimmerman)

I was impressed with the  Las Vegas Pain Institute and Medical

Center because they have conducted extensive research about

pain.

Dr. Ho Dzung, MD, Anesthesiologist, explained,

“Our doctors help to create the path of a diagnoses,

to gather all of the information and confer with our

colleagues and specialists

in order to formulate a

care plan tailored for each patient.

We diagnose patients using imaging such as the

MRI, Cat Scan, and X-Rays all here at our medical center.

We like to utilize everything from conservative medical

management to minimally invasive procedures

and physical therapy.

I think the initial visit with a patient is most important.

The patient has been in pain for a little while,

or sometimes he/she spent years going from doctor to doctor

taking different medications.

Within the

half-hour to

forty-five minute

first initial

consultation,

we try to develop a

rapport with patients

to understand their symptoms.

Pain can take a tole in a patient’s activities of daily living,

their personality and mood. Our doctors try to

tune into those issues and address all aspects

affecting the patient and not only treat the pain itself.

There are not too many pain symptoms that

we have not seen, the more common ones are

neck and back pain which count for three-fourths

of the patient’s visits.

These could be neck generated headaches, headaches, nerve

damage, symptoms from trauma, and much more.

We diagnose and treat all types of pain from head to toe with

simple joint injections, minimally invasive procedures,

to spinal cord stimulators and other more invasive therapies.

This is a multi-disciplinary institution.”

Many people have pains because they walked too much

or picked up a heavy object.

What are the tell tail warning signs that you should see a doctor?

Dr. Dzung recommends, “When a person begins to experience

pain and it doesn’t feel right.

Perhaps the stomach feels weird, the chest feels heavy,

or the person has trouble breathing.”

Dr. Dzung and I walked through their large medical, surgical,

and physical therapy facilities while he stopped

at times to see patients.

Later he dressed

in surgical scrubs with

a lead shield around him

and entered the

procedure room.

Dr. Dzung was

administering a right lumbar block as part of his diagnosis of  a

female patient who suffered from low back pain.

(Photos of the procedure are shown in this article.)

He felt this was a therapeutic tool to find the origin of her pain.


#2-Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement Surgery

June 22nd, 2010 • by Sandy Zimmerman

Feature #2-  Dr. Todd V. Swanson, MD, Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon: “Fewer Complications”

Dr. Swanson mentioned another benefit of the minimally invasive hip replacement technique, “There are so many types of minimally invasive hip surgery, at least four- to-five different techniques since we developed our technique 11 years ago;

Many surgeons are not adequately trained or do not get adequate visualization.

I use this procedure, teach it all over the world, and have developed it very well;  We teach surgeons exactly how to do the procedure;  Our complication rate is actually lower when I study my traditional incision patients with my minimally invasive patients.”

“What Are the Symptoms of Arthritis and Joint Problems?”

“The most common symptom is pain.  It is normal for people to suffer from a little bit of pain, which comes with activities and aging.  If you are developing pain that is limiting your activities or altering your lifestyle of daily living this is the time to seek attention either with your primary care doctor or an Orthopedic surgeon.

If the problem is not too serious like Tendonitis, Bursitis, or muscle pain, your primary care doctor can treat them.  If the problem is serious, you may need more aggressive treatment, not always surgery, sometimes injections or other treatments.”

Can Arthritis be Prevented?

“There is no absolute way to prevent arthritis; We all develop arthritis as we age but our lifestyle can lessen the chance of having arthritis.  Exercise is good but some types are harder on the joints like impact loading exercises when you are putting a pounding stress on hips as in running and jumping.  Always run on a soft surface.  People who run on a hard cement surface are more likely to damage their hip or knee joints.  A healthy diet is also important.

What Is a Hip Replacement?

When a person develops arthritis, as most of us do when we get older, it can become so severe they have significant pain.  Arthritis is basically the loss of the cartridge cushion in the joint.  A total hip replacement removes worn or roughened areas of the bone and the damaged parts must be replaced with new artificial parts in order to take away the patient’s pain.”

Problems when Using Cement in Hip Replacement

“Cement was common in hip replacement surgery.  The original total hip surgery developed in the 70′s and 80′s, all used cement to hold the implant to the bone.  Eventually the cement cracked and loosened causing the patient to undergo a second operation.  Sometimes the cement is pressurized inside the bone which pushes the bone marrow contents into the blood stream flowing into the heart and lungs.  We did studies using ultra-sound pressurizing cement and looking at the heart.  It looked like a snow storm with debris going into the heart and lungs.  We have stopped using cement because of the successful technologies today.  A hip prosthesis can be placed inside the patient potentially to last the rest of their life.   (Continued)
