Laura Alvis and Her Family

Laura Alvis and her family

By Paul R. Jeffords, MD

In 2007, Laura Alvis, a nurse at Piedmont Hospital, became the first patient in Georgia to receive an innovative lumbar artificial disc-replacement (ADR) implant called the ProDisc-L. Dr. Paul Jeffords performed the procedure to remove and replace a severely degenerated disc in Alvis’ lower back which had caused years of severe back pain. The surgery was successful in relieving Alvis’ pain and in July of 2008, she gave birth to her first daughter, Sarah Clair. Thirteen years later, Alvis is still going strong and now has a family of five.

“Before this surgery, my husband and I had quit contemplating having a child,” she said. “We wanted a family, but I didn’t think I could stand the additional pain, and I didn’t know what further damage it would do to my back.” Alvis had suffered from a bad back since she was 16. “In 1997, I sought out specialists and they prescribed a whole range of epidural steroids, muscle-relaxing medication and physical therapy,” said Alvis. “By the time I met Dr. Jeffords, I was depressed and never out of pain. I couldn’t assume any position that would relieve the pain and had to cut back on my hours at work.

“My husband, Scott, and I married in August 2005, and it seemed like our whole dating, engagement and married life was him taking care of me,” said Alvis. “He’d have to strap me into a traction machine at night.” Most patients with degenerative-disc disease deal with the pain through physical therapy and medication. In the past, the only surgical option was to remove the degenerated disc and fuse the two bones together. That puts added pressure on the adjacent discs and leads to less mobility.

The advantage of disc-replacement surgery over fusion is that patients can return to normal motion relatively quickly after the operation, with better function and faster recovery. It is an elegant solution, because it removes the source of the pain, while maintaining the spinal motion. Of course, not every patient with back pain is a candidate for this type of surgery.

Recently, Alvis developed some pain related to moderate arthritis that has developed in the facet joints of her spine, unrelated to the disc surgery. Fortunately, this was successfully treated with injections performed by Drs. Krystal Chambers and Reuben Sloan, fellow partners at Resurgens Spine Center, and no further surgery has been needed.

Alvis said after the surgery in 2007, “I was walking within hours and, with physical therapy and then regular exercise, I was able to return to work in eight weeks.” After eight pain-free months, Alvis and her husband were ready to start a family. “I never had a problem with my back during pregnancy,” she said. “The whole pregnancy and delivery went well, but I couldn’t have done it without first having this surgery.”

Now, 13 years after surgery, Alvis and her husband have a daughter who is 11, and two sons, who are 7 and 4, and she states, “The surgery not only allowed me to have our three children, but it has also allowed me to be active with them. We walk in the woods, ride bikes and explore National Parks. Last year at the beach I was able to carry all the beach items each day—and play in the ocean and build sandcastles— without experiencing back pain. Everyday things like wrestling, having Nerf gun battles or playing catch are possible. With pain no longer a part of my life, I am able to enjoy my family and our time together.”

Therapist at Benchmark Physical Therapy walking a patient through an exerciseMaybe you’re active but not a “real athlete,” so you think you’re immune to overuse injuries. Think again. Anyone who’s active is prone to the nagging injuries that come with repetitive motions or misalignment in the body. “An athlete can be a recreational runner, swimmer, or golfer,” said Andy Patterson, physical therapist for BenchMark Physical Therapy. “They’re all athletes.” Among recreational athletes, overuse injuries are more common than acute injuries, such as broken bones and torn ligaments. Overuse injuries can hamper mobility and cause pain. They can strike at any age. They are preventable and they are treatable, so active people can stay in the game.

What is an overuse injury?

You’ve probably heard of tennis elbow, Little Leaguer’s elbow, shin splints, or plantar fasciitis. All are overuse injuries, and there are many others. The underlying cause is the “cumulative or repetitive microtrauma” endured time and again by a single part of the body, said Patterson. Damage accrues to bones, muscles, ligaments, or tendons. Tissue becomes inflamed, and the area degenerates.

Causes of overuse injuries:

• Repetitive motion

• Overtraining

• Sudden bursts in activity

• Built-in risk factors such as misalignment, muscle imbalances, muscle weakness, and joint instability

Avoiding overuse injuries

Female therapist at Benchmark Physical Therapy walking a patient through an exerciseTo prevent overuse injuries, remember the fundamentals of staying active:

•  Warm up properly: Start at lower intensity and “give the heart and tissues time to adapt to what you’re doing,” said Patterson. Today’s warmups are dynamic, not stretching cold muscles but gentle movements that activate muscles and nudge up the heart rate.

• Cool down: “An active cooldown with stretching or myofascial mobility – using a foam roller over the areas that may be contributing to your pain –can be very bene cial,” Patterson said.

• Vary activities: Because repetitive motion is a frequent culprit, adding a new sport gives overburdened muscles and joints time to rest. This is especially important for children and teens, when “the bones are getting big and the muscles are playing catchup,” said Patterson.

Treating overuse injuries

If you suspect an overuse injury, have a doctor check for weakness, flexibility, and imbalances. “The body is influenced by everything around it,” said Patterson. “If I have foot pain, it may be local to that area, or it could be coming from higher up in the chain.”

Once the problem area is diagnosed, a physical therapist or athletic trainer specializing in the condition can recommend a course of treatment. Typical elements include:

• Resting the inflamed area: Rest doesn’t always mean no activity. A physical therapist might recommend modified activity, known as “active rest,” when the injured area is idle but the whole body doesn’t decondition entirely.

• Strengthening regimen: Stronger muscles in the shoulders or core, for instance, can support movement throughout the body.

• Progressive return: Just because the injured area is healed doesn’t mean it’s ready to perform at 100 percent. The physical therapist can reevaluate the body and suggest a gradual restorative plan, perhaps with modifications to prevent recurrence.

The physical therapists of BenchMark Physical Therapy are highly trained, dedicated, and ready to help athletes of all types get back to their active lifestyles.

CPAP vs. Mouth AppliancesDespite widespread agreement that continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is a fast and effective way to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), it is estimated that 50% of patients who use a CPAP machine are noncompliant within one year.

Top 5 reasons people don’t like CPAP:

• I turn a lot when I sleep and the cord gets in my way.
• This machine may keep me single forever.
• I can’t sleep with something on my face all night.
• I am waking up every hour feeling like I am in a wind tunnel. • I feel excessive air in my stomach.

What are other treatment options for sleep apnea if I cannot wear the CPAP?

Seeking out an ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctor to determine what may be contributing to the obstruction-causing apnea is beneficial. ENT doctors can evaluate the airway and try to identify factors that may be contributing to your sleeping problems.

Oral appliance therapy is heavily researched and recommended for mild to moderate OSA. I have treated many severe OSA patients who just can’t tolerate CPAP therapy as well with great results.

There are now over 150 approved custom oral appliances on the market for treatment of OSA. Do not just go buy one online.

These custom appliances have to be adjusted and prepared individually in order to meet your needs. We are all anatomically very different and so the appliance has to be custom made to your specific airway needs to work properly.

The use of these devices has been on the rise for many years now due to their small size, ease to travel with and overall comfort and effectiveness. No power needed!

Another option for severe OSA is combination therapy, where we use a much lower pressure on the CPAP machine in conjunction with minimal advancement with oral appliance therapy.

Mother daughter SkincareBeing a mom can be all-consuming, and often times facials, massages, and coffee dates with friends become pushed to the end of the to-do list. However, no matter how busy life gets and how much mom-ing takes over, one thing you shouldn’t compromise is skincare!

Being committed to your skin is important as it will be with you long after the kids are gone. Preventive skincare is key to control acne, pigmentation problems and
later actinic (sun) damage. Below are our routine recommendations and a few tips to keep you on track.

Skincare Regimen

  • Cleanse your face at least once daily with a gentle cleanser. Avoid harsh chemical exfoliants, masks and brushes initially as they can be more irritating as we age.
  • Apply antioxidant product to clean, dry skin to help correct damage occurring from sun exposure, visible light exposure and pollutants. These products generally contain Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Resveratrol or other antioxidants.
  • Moisturize in the morning with non-comedogenic product that contains sunscreen SPF 30 or greater. A tinted moisturizer or a makeup that contains a similar level of sunscreen can eliminate a step from your morning routine.
  • Use a retinol or retinoid product (adapalene, tretinoin, tazaroten or triferotene) at night. These products help to treat acne, reverse sun damage and build collagen to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
  • If you struggle with dark spots or patches, fading agents can help. Over the counter options include low strength hydroquinone, alpha and beta hydroxy acids and azaleic acid products. Pigmentation problems can be particularly difficult, so evaluation by a board-certified dermatologist may be necessary to properly address this issue.

Skin Fact
Healthy, beautiful skin cannot be found in a single product but is easy to attain with these few targeted practices

Men's Health is BoringLet’s face it, repetitive tasks are boring. However, those who can master mundane undertakings will lead the pack in any endeavor— including staying healthy. Unfortunately, we go to incredible lengths to avoid actions that we know are good for us. Our brains try to protect us from the discomfort of monotonous activities, missed opportunities and emotional or physical stress. In essence, immediate gratification has the upper hand.

The first step in becoming a better “you” is having a good attitude. Chores can often transform into opportunities. Interestingly, much of our daily tedium can yield some immediate gratification. Here are some examples:

• Exercise – A single session at the gym will not make you physically fit, but it can boost your energy level and give you a sense of satisfaction.

• A full night’s sleep – Feeling rested and productive is always a good thing, but the real benefit is a more resilient cardiovascular system.

• Flossing – Not only will flossing give you a fresh taste in your mouth, it also leads to better cardiovascular health (buildup of oral bacteria can cause inflammation of and damage to the lining of our blood vessels).

Other repetitive tasks that lead to long-term gains include reading, meditating, eating healthy foods and managing emails. Not only do we need to exercise our bodies, but we also need to exercise our brains and reduce emotional stress.

So, what separates the high performers from the mere mortals? Here are some tips to give you a start:

• Make it a habit – Incorporate those boring but essential tasks into an existing routine. For example, try keeping some dental floss in the shower.

• Associate tasks with something fun – For example, walk on a treadmill while you catch up on those YouTube videos (rather than while lying on the couch).

• Focus on the reward – The incentive can be as simple as the satisfaction of conquering a challenge. This reward will increase your desire to repeat the behavior.

• Don’t worry about perfection – Consistency always trumps occasional quality.

• Give up on shortcuts – We often spend more effort in finding a shortcut than just completing the task itself.

• Enjoy turning off your brain – Schedule “mindless” tasks as a break from your more thought-intensive obligations.

Hopefully, these tips will help you recognize the impact of regular routines on your future health. In the words of Thomas Edison, “Most people miss opportunity because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”

Look for my article on “Men’s Health Summer School” in the next issue.

 Dr. Seth YellinOne of the biggest challenges for facial plastic surgeons is that altering someone’s face is an enormous responsibility.

Dr. Seth A. Yellin, who is inspired to solve problems with creative, artistic solutions, is up to the task. As a facial plastic surgeon with 25 years of experience, including founding Marietta Facial Plastic Surgery, Laser & Aesthetics Center nine years ago, and formerly as Chief of Facial Plastic Surgery at Emory Healthcare for 12 years, his reputation as a meticulous, talented surgeon has brought him national recognition.

One in a Million

“I am a healthcare provider first, so I take the time to delve into my patient’s medical history and really listen to their concerns,” says Dr. Yellin. “I have a unique and comprehensive way of evaluating faces and explaining the aging process and how it specifically relates to them. I frequently recommend solutions that my patients aren’t expecting, and deliver results that far exceed what they ever thought possible.”

Technology helps with that. New advancements lift and tighten skin and sculpt faces, necks and bodies. Dr. Yellin does extensive research to find the treatments that deliver real results, such as Profound® RF, which uses microneedle delivery of radiofrequency energy to stimulate elastin production, tightening skin and enabling improved neck and jawline contours, and the long- lasting, artistically demanding Injecta-Lift™ procedure that can balance left-right facial symmetry and create a more idealized facial shape, making the face appear more youthful and beautiful.

Today, self-improvement is more accessible than ever before. It’s also more effective, safer, less invasive and requires less downtime for recovery. In combination with scientifically proven skin care, patients can often look great without major surgery.

Feeling Great About Your Face

Injecta-Lift-Dr-Yellin-Logo“For many people, as their appearance noticeably changes due to the march of time or if there’s dissatisfaction with a particular facial feature, it can be emotionally dif cult and chip away at their self-esteem,” says Dr. Yellin. “The confidence we have in our appearance matters. I am in the business of wellness, and one’s appearance is a vital component to that sense of well-being. Maintaining a positive outlook, especially during these trying times, is critical.”

Dr. Yellin notes that getting an early start with treatments such as Botox, fillers and skincare will lead to fewer lines and issues to deal with in the long run, thus keeping us looking fabulous longer. “Properly reshaping faces with injectable fillers is an art form,” he says. “Fillers should always create an appearance that looks beautiful, natural and undetectable.”

Creating a natural look is a hallmark of Dr. Yellin’s practice. “Patients always tell me that they love how people comment that they look beautiful, but can’t figure out what was done,” he says. “They ask them, did you change your hairstyle? Come back from a vacation? They just can’t figure it out.”

Ken AndersonIn 2003, Dr. Ken Anderson discovered the field of hair restoration surgery as the perfect combination of his love for both art and medicine. He left the field of facial reconstructive surgery and has since worked to change both lives and the reputation of the niche anti-aging field, to the tune of some of the happiest patients he’s ever seen.

A Growing Reputation

Even with some of the most pleased patients in the medical eld, he continues to battle the excess of misinformation that both men and women initially have when they come to see him about hair loss.

“Because hair restoration is immensely private and personal, it is not shared and talked about like other cosmetic procedures,” says Anderson. “There are a lot of unknowns and fears that can cause hesitation or anxiety. We work hard to educate our patients about hair loss and hair restoration options to overcome those things.”

Educating their clients is how Anderson and his staff work to stand apart from their competition. In addition, with hair restoration surgery as their sole focus, rather than amongst a long menu of cosmetic procedures, the triple-board-certified surgeon can work on honing his expertise and techniques. That includes bringing the first ARTASTM Robotic Hair Restoration system to Georgia, followed by the iX ARTASTM Robotic Hair Restoration system.

Dr. Ken Anderson explaining a procedureThrough robotics, regenerative medicine and more, he’s worked with the industry to evolve hair restoration into an anti-aging agent that delivers 100% natural results, debunking those prior misconceptions, and inspiring people to start talking about it.

Unlocked Potential

“When you lose your hair, it can have serious psychological effects. Restoring hair restores youth, confidence, and self-esteem,” said Anderson. “Patients will style their new hair and send me pictures of their new look. Patients find themselves in new relationships or tackling new professional challenges with newfound self-esteem and self-image. They’re always shocked at how easy the entire process is.”

Delivering that feeling through a philosophy founded on being the best version of yourself at any age, is what drives Anderson.

Before & After Hair Restoration at Anderson Center for Hair“I love everything about what I do—it is a dream come true,” said Anderson. “I am able to take my passions and help others regain their confidence. When our patients feel good about themselves and how they look, they are more con dent, more outgoing. It changes how other people perceive them because it has changed how they perceive themselves.”

The Team at Buckhead Plastic SurgeryDr. Alan N. Larsen took a roundabout journey to plastic surgery. By way of astronaut dreams and admiration for the surgeon who saved his life after falling ill as a young child.

Dr. Larsen is a Double Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who is known for his outstanding surgical results in both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. For over 22 years at Buckhead Plastic Surgery, Dr. Larsen has been providing a comprehensive array of surgical and non-surgical procedures.

A Goal of Perfection

What helps Dr. Larsen stand out from his competition in a competitive, fast-paced world is that he is a self-proclaimed perfectionist. With a persistent “pursuit of perfection,” he spends ample time with his patients to ensure not only individual customization but a successful outcome through realistic expectations. This attention to detail is what keeps client referrals coming, and patient satisfaction rates consistently high.

Dr. Larsen is well respected in the medical field in Atlanta and sharpens his skills with the latest technology and methods through continuing medical education and plastic surgery conferences throughout the years. He is revered in the Atlanta area and Southeast for his impeccable facial surgeries, body lifts, mommy makeovers, and breast surgeries.

Dr. Larsen is a pioneer in some of the most challenging yet life-changing procedures
in plastic surgery, like the body lift (belt lipectomy). Along with the tummy tuck, a body lift in a single operation can rejuvenate the entire abdomen and waistline and is one of the most transformative and life-changing plastic surgery procedures.

Tummy Tuck before and afterDebunking the Past

The past is also where Dr. Larsen has to work from, and misconceptions are plenty.

“People often think that plastic surgeons can accomplish and do more than we actually can. So sometimes it can be hard to meet their expectations if their expectations are unrealistic,” he says. “My staff and I do thorough preoperative counseling, where we educate our patients on realistic outcomes of the procedures we offer, which increases the likelihood that they’ll be happy with their results.”

Practicing his craft perfectly and treating his patients with honesty and respect are huge drivers of Dr. Larsen’s business philosophy. That genuine doctor-client relationship blended with his expertise and experience delivers great outcomes every time. Which, for Dr. Larsen, makes it worth giving up his one-time dream of being an astronaut.

“One of the things that keeps me motivated is that I love what I do,” says Dr. Larsen. “I’ve picked a profession that is what I want to do every morning I wake up.”

Dr. Larsen has a unique medical complex. This complex is made up of three boutique-style practices and now an exceptional AAAASF accredited surgical center all in one location and allows for an individualized, intimate experience. Enjoy non-surgical face and body treatments at LUX Med Spa and non-invasive body sculpting at Slim Studio.
This complex fulfills Dr. Larsen’s vision of personalized, whole-body care in a private and luxurious environment.

Dr. Larsen values giving back and helping others in the community. He devotes a significant amount of time providing breast reconstructive surgery for breast cancer patients. For years he has helped women restore their confidence. He partners with the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund and BRADay USA, through ASPS (American Society for Plastic Surgery).

Whatever your aesthetic goals may be, they can be achieved by Dr. Larsen and his professional, dedicated staff, who will provide a thorough client education process to help you make your decision with the utmost confidence.
