University of Westerm States hires new functional medicine doctor for clinic system


Portland, Ore (PRWEB) March 13, 2015

University of Western States (UWS), a leader in the education of health care professionals, recently added Rachel Fischer, MD, MPH to the UWS clinic system. Dr. Fischer’s background in preventive and functional medicine also earned her a role as a faculty member in the new Northwest Center for Lifestyle and Functional Medicine (NWCLFM) at UWS. In this role, she will serve as the Integrative Therapeutics distinguished professor of functional medicine, teaching functional and preventive medicine to students in the HNFM program.

Functional medicine integrates the most recent Western medical data and practices with a focus on prevention and reversing disease progression through nutrition, exercise, stress management, as well as with drugs, supplements or therapeutic diets.

“We are very excited to have Dr. Fischer join our clinic and teaching staff. Her experience as a medical doctor with a background in functional and preventive medicine not only broadens the scope of services we can provide to patients, it also aligns with the goals and visions of the university’s new Northwest Center for Lifestyle and Functional Medicine. She shares in our belief that treating disease must start with finding the root cause,” Dr. Will Evans, provost and executive vice president at University of Western States said.

Dr. Fischer obtained her medical degree from University of Utah, where she also completed two years of medical residency in internal medicine. Dr. Fischer then completed her residency and fellowship in occupational and environmental medicine at University of Washington. Additionally, she completed a Master of Science with a focus in epidemiology from University of Utah and a master of public health focused in environmental health from University of Washington. Dr. Fischer is board certified by the American Board of Preventive Medicine and is currently pursing certification by the Institute of Functional Medicine.

“While my experience and education made this position a perfect fit for me,” Dr. Fischer said, “ultimately, it was the people and their shared belief that a transformation in patient care is necessary to address the complex, chronic diseases that so significantly impact public health.”

Coquitlam Physiotherapy Clinic, Absolute PhysioCare & Sports Rehab, has recently announced that its highly qualified team of physiotherapists now draws up individualized post-surgical recovery plans for each patient, based on their personal conditions and goals. These personalized rehabilitation plans acknowledge that each patient is different and, hence, requires a unique treatment plan that will help them recover and reach their pre-injury state.

“We are equipped with a bright, spacious rehabilitation gym where our energetic and positive physiotherapists will help you through the steps of the post surgical rehabilitation process,” states a representative from the Coquitlam Physio Clinic. “Our physiotherapists will provide you with appropriate range of motion, stabilization, and strength exercises which will help you gain back independence and function. In order to make sure that your care is as complete as possible, we will also obtain reports from your orthopedic surgeon after your surgery and when needed provide progress reports to your surgeon to make sure that your progress is on track and that you have a successful outcome.”

As a result, physiotherapy can act as an excellent recovery agent for rehabilitation after a wide array of orthopedic surgeries, including ACL reconstruction rehabilitation, total knee replacements rehabilitation, spinal surgery rehabilitation, hip replacement and hip arthroscopy rehabilitation and many more that can be found at http://www.burnabyphysiocare.com/physio-therapy/post-surgical-rehabilitation/.

Mayo Clinic Study Confirms That Stress And Emotional Anxiety Can Raise Risk Of Surgical Complications


Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) December 01, 2014

In a recent Mayo Clinic study published in the Journal Of Gastrointestinal Surgery released in September 2014, researchers found that quality of life issues like family turmoil and secondary worries unrelated to the patient’s illness and upcoming surgery could increase the likelihood of suffering surgical complications. As a result, the study concluded that addressing stress and emotional anxiety prior to surgery should be a priority for a better surgical recovery.

“The results of the study are a welcome addition to the existing science on how stress and emotional well being affects the healing process,” said Koretz, who offers rejuvenation and luxury spa amenities in addition to medical after surgery care at Pearl Recovery Retreat.

Of the 431 patients observed, the study found that patients with lower quality of life indicators were as much as three times more likely to suffer post surgical complications. Some of the metrics used to measure a patient’s quality of life score and wellness include:

financial

spiritual

emotional

mental

social

Patients that felt anxiety or emotional distress over their needs not being met in any or a combination of the key quality of life indicators received a lower quality of life score, and were therefore at a higher risk for surgical complications.

Adding to the Mayo Clinic study’s findings, a study published in the November 2014 issue of Anesthesiology out of McGill University Health Centre in Montreal found that patients that underwent what they called “prehabilitation,” a course of conditioning, nutrition, and relaxation exercises prior to surgery showed greater progress in post-surgical rehabilitation.

“At Pearl Recovery Retreat, we’ve worked to design programs that help mitigate post-surgical complications and stress, and contribute to a healthy and speedy recovery for all of our patients,” added Koretz. “In addition to a surgical retreat, it’s a home away from home where patients can put their needs and well being first, for a safe and worry free recovery.”

Pearl Recovery Retreat is a surgical aftercare facility and wellness retreat in Beverly Hills, located within the 5-star SLS Hotel Beverly Hills. With professional nurses, luxurious rooms, and lavish amenities, Pearl offers post-surgical patients the opportunity to recover in a serene environment under the watchful eye of an experienced nursing staff. With their doctors’ approval, patients may check into Pearl after outpatient surgery, including cosmetic, gynecological, bariatric, orthopedic, sinus, and bunion procedures. Unlike other aftercare facilities, Pearl is centrally located within a short drive of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center as well as many of Beverly Hills’ top surgeons and doctors. Pearl offers an unparalleled array of recovery in-room amenities including gourmet dining options, spa services, and unrestricted visiting hours.
