Routine Health Screenings You Can't Ignore
Making time in your busy schedule to have routine health screenings, make a big difference in the detection and prevention of serious diseases.
Let's face it, your life is busy. Between work, family, community and social obligations there's hardly time to think. You run from meeting to meeting at work, attend your daughter's soccer game, help your son with his science project, volunteer for the local soup kitchen and plan your high school class reunion. It's no wonder you take very little time for your own health - mostly because there is little time to take. However, by making time in your busy schedule to have routine health screenings, you can make a big difference in the detection and prevention of serious diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Below is a list of recommended screenings, when they should be completed and what they are designed to do.
UAP Clinic Surgeons Perform Robotic Surgeries in the Wabash Valley
A new age of surgery has come to the Wabash Valley! UAP Clinic surgeons have partnered with Union Hospital to provide an alternative to the traditional surgical approach for hysterectomies, sacrocolpopexy and prostatectomies by using the da Vinci Surgical System. Union Hospital and UAP Clinic are currently a few of only a handful of facilities across the country offering these minimally invasive, state-of-the-art procedures. The da Vinci S Surgical System integrates 3D HD laparoscopy and state-of-the-art robotic technology to virtually extend the surgeon's eyes and hands into the surgical field. The system is designed to enable new, minimally invasive options for complex surgical procedures. HD projection provides twice the effective viewing resolution and 20 percent more viewing area compared to da Vinci's standard 3D vision system. The unparalleled HD image improves clarity and detail of tissue and anatomy, which is crucial for complex dissection and reconstructive procedures.

UAP Cosmetic Laser Center is Now Offering Botox and Juvederm
With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, there are many reasons why people choose Botox and Juvederm!
Botox is injected into the muscles that control moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to these muscles which reduces muscle activity. Once injected, you will see optimal results in two to four days. Results may continue to improve over the next 30 days and can last up to 4 months.
Juvederm is a gel filler used to smooth away wrinkles around your nose, mouth, smile lines, marionette lines and vertical lines. It can also enhance your lips. It creates a smooth, natural look which may last up to one year. Juvederm works by restoring hyaluronic acid in your skin which causes it to plump up and look more youthful and natural.
For your free complimentary consultation, call the UAP Cosmetic Laser Center at 242-3333. Let us help you take care of all your cosmetic needs.

Do you have leg discomfort, pain or swelling? Do you have varicose veins?
You may already know more about varicose veins than you would like. Half of all Americans over 50 (and two-thirds of women over 60) suffer from the pain and swelling of those big ropey leg veins.
"The condition is caused by failing valves in the saphenous veins that allow blood to pool in the legs, and symptoms can range from aching and fatigue to skin ulcers", Dr. Glenn Mandeville, surgeon, UAP Clinic, said.
Women who have had more than two pregnancies are at particular risk, and heredity, weight, and careers that require standing throughout the day, like nursing or teaching, are risk factors as well.
Are You Aware of Your Hearing Loss?
"What? You think I have a hearing loss?" If you are like many people, you may be surprised when friends and family suggest that you have a hearing problem. You may think to yourself "I hear what people say. I don't know why they think I have a hearing loss." Many times, you probably do hear them when they are talking, but you may be missing some of their conversation with you, or you may not realize that what you think you heard is not exactly what they were saying. This can lead to your loved ones accusing you of not listening or of not paying attention. There may actually be times when you do not realize that someone is speaking. In this case, you may appear to be ignoring the person, or you may start talking, causing your communication partner to view you as quite rude. Faux pas such as this can lead to annoyance, resentment, and/or exasperation on the part of your communication partner.
You are not alone! Many people experience this, because hearing loss usually comes on very gradually. If you woke up one morning and suddenly could not hear your alarm clock, or the coffee brewing, or your neighbor's lawnmower, you would probably know right away that you had a hearing problem. The hearing loss experienced by most people is not sudden, but instead comes on little by little. Even when people's hearing losses have advanced to the point where they are missing the punch line during a joke, or failing to hear the tea pot whistle, they still are likely to know when someone is talking and to understand much of what is said, especially in an ideal listening situation where there is only one talker and no background noise.
