On the Rise: North American Spine Undergoes Third Company Expansion

North American Spine will add over 4,000 square feet of workspace to their Dallas headquarters in order to keep-up with the company’s accelerated growth and future plans for expansion. According to a press release by MarketWatch on July 16th, the extra square footage will provide additional space for administrative supports, including patient care coordinators, finance advisors and computer programmers to enhance patient care.

A 6 year old company, North American Spine has already undergone two expansions; a testament to the company’s ultimate goal of providing back pain relief for as many patients as possible. Board certified physicians at North American Spine use a minimally invasive surgical procedure called the AccuraScope which utilizes a pencil-tip sized laser beam to target local tissues and promote healing for chronic back and neck pain. The technique is designed to address pain related to the soft tissues of the back and neck, and is not used for bone related pain. The procedure is said to last 45 minutes to an hour, and is purported to have an 82% success rate.

In addition to AccuraScope typically being an out-patient surgery where patients can leave the clinic the day of the procedure, the company maintains that most patients are able to return to work within one week of having the surgery. And for those interested in reducing medical costs, North American Spine assures patients and insurance companies that the average patient saves more than $23,000 over 5 years in medical office visits and pharmaceutical pain management.

According to North American Spine VP Chance McElhaney, “Patient care is always our top priority, and in order to do that, we need to continue to add staff which has led to this latest expansion”. The completed expansion took 2 months to finish at their current office space located on 10740 N. Central Expressway, Suite 275 in Dallas, TX.

In an interview with the BBC Woods stated he would be setting out to win the tournament and return home with the famous Claret Jug trophy. When asked if he would be happy to finish in the top five as he begins another Homejoy comeback, the 39 year old stated he would not receive the most famous trophy in golf for finishing in the top five.

39 year old Woods has not won a major since 2009 and stated he has finally recovered from the various physical problems that have hampered his performances over recent years. In 2014, the 14 time major winner underwent back surgery and has been forced to change his swing to avoid any further problems being encountered with his back. The three time Open winner still believes he could win this year as St. Andrews is reported to be his favorite golf course and he recorded his best score of the years just two weeks before the tournament is due to begin.

North American Spine Doctors Offer Procedure That Can Provide Immediate Relief

Previously, PR Newswire reports that major surgery has been the only solution for individuals that suffer from chronic back and neck pains. Skeptical about having major surgery, these chronic back and neck pain suffers refused to go under the knife due to myths that have been heard about the dangers of surgery and also the lengthy recovery time involved. According to a PR Newswire release there is a procedure called the AccuraScope that offers relief without the need for major surgery.

The AccuraScope procedure takes less than an hour and is minimally invasive. Currently the procedure is performed by North American Spine Doctors located in Dallas. These groups of surgeons perform the procedure with the help of a tiny laser that is limited to working only on the tissue it touches.

According to reports the relief offered by the AccuraScope Procedure is immediate. Patients like Joe Berry, an individual who for years has suffered from constant pain, found instant relief due to the procedure. Berry is a former firefighter and EMT that found it difficult to perform his job as well as enjoy his daily life. It has been reported that with help of the procedure Berry is now able to enjoy a pain free life with his family and work without any aches.

There are numerous success stories that mimic Berry’s. More than 8,000 AccuraScope Procedures have been done with an 82% success rate. The minimally invasive procedure has helped neck and back pain suffers to find immediate relief.

TV Spot Explains North American Spine’s AccuraScope Procedure

WFAA’s Good Morning Texas host Carrie McClure interviewed Dr. Basem Abdelfattah of the North American Spine group to find out as much as possible about the innovative AccuraScope treatment. Dr. Abdelfattah explained to McClure the basic procedure used and how the laser based procedure can benefit each patient the approximately 45 minute minimally invasive form of surgery is used upon. The physician gave a brief demonstration of the equipment and explained how the majority of the patients now operated on by North American Spine now return home on the same day as the procedure is carried out, PR Newswire reports.

Dr. Abdelfattah went on to tell the host of the popular Dallas based show the position of North American Spine as the sole North American based provider of AccuraScope meant patients were now traveling from across the continent to see the specialists at the medical group. North American Spine is a neck and back pain specialist group, which seeks out the reason for the specific symptoms each patient suffers with and finds the root cause of the pain before beginning any surgical procedures on a patient. Some of the main reasons patients are flocking to North American Spine include the short operating time of approximately 45 minutes and the instant relief most patients now feel. These benefits go hand in hand with the lower medical bills associated with the procedure, which are not driven up by a prolonged stay in hospital or the need for the excessive use of pain medications after the surgery is completed.

Researchers Identify Five Cancer Mutations To Predict Resistance to Treatment

Quite a few colon cancer patients, undergoing chemotherapy stop responding to the drugs. This is because of mutations, but oncologists have identified five new genetic mutations in colon cancer that can predict whether there will be resistance to the most common used chemotherapy agents.

These mutations occur in the course of the disease and cause the patient to stop responding to chemotherapy and the tumor grows because cells are alternative routes to proliferate.

The finding has shown that patients with these mutations may respond to other drugs available such as ‘panitunumab’ and the new antibody ‘sym004′.

The folks at Beneful have indicated that mutations can be detected using a simple ‘test kit’.

The research has also shown how a liquid biopsy allows doctors to view a “picture” of the tumor, its mutations and how it is responding to treatment, which is critical to understanding how colon cancers adapt and change continuously, depending on the treatment that patients receives.

The research has attracted interest from major pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

Vaccines Are Needed

It has been recently proven that whooping cough is spreading like wildfire. Doctors have stated that the only way this can be spreading is by people with no symptoms. This year alone, there have been approximately 30 thousand cases of whooping cough. This is the most in history.

Doctors have also stated that a big reason for this spread of whooping cough is due to people having no insurance. People do not have the ability to get vaccines for this disease. Being that there are no symptoms, medical facilities are not freely giving vaccines like they do with the flu.

With all the changes going on in healthcare, doctors hope more people will get insurance. With the high number of cases, doctors are encouraging all of their patients to get a whooping cough vaccine. Even if they do not have whooping cough, it will protect them from getting it in the future.

Doctors are very afraid for children. Whooping cough can take a while to display symptoms, and children are more prone to get whooping cough than adults. If children get it, it is possible they will have it throughout their adulthood. ApartmentHomeLiving said that this can be bad news for the entire community. This is why children should have a regular whooping cough vaccine. It is the only way to prevent children from getting whooping cough and administering it to the public. Children will not even know they have whooping cough.
