Renown Health Opening New Clinic in South Reno

The expanding population of South Reno will soon have another option for health care as Renown Health opens its twelfth clinic in the region. The family health practice clinic will occupy three storefronts at The Summit Mall and will provide much needed services in the South Meadows area.

Patients entering clinic will find the atmosphere to be comfortable and inviting, as it was designed to feel like a living room. The facility will also include a conference room to allow patients a private space to meet with staff.

At present, the Summit Mall clinic has a staff of 11, although Renown may add an additional primary care physician and nurse practitioner. Primary health care services and a laboratory are offered, but the 10,000 square foot clinic has room to expand to offer more services in the future.

At least twelve Reno-based contractors were needed to convert the space, formerly occupied by a menswear store, into a medical facility. The project took more than three months to complete.

In 2016, Renown doctors and specialists delivered over 4,000 babies, performed more than 19,000 same-day surgeries, had nearly 700,000 patient visits, and performed more than two and a half million tests. The network includes hospitals, urgent care facilities, specialist services in health laboratories and imaging, in addition to a variety of specialists. Renown also operates a not-for profit insurance company called Hometown Health.

Renown Health is a locally-governed health network, with over 150 members of the community holding positions on Renown boards or serving in advisory roles. Since Renown is not-for-profit, all earnings are reinvested into the community. In 2016, more than $78 million were spent on community programs and health services, and $63 million were spent on capital improvements. In addition, Renown provides more than 12,000 direct and indirect local jobs, making it one of Northern Nevada’s largest employers.

Groundbreaking Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Research, Dr. Shiva Gopal Vasishta

Every day there is abundant new research done into how stem cells can be utilized to help benefit humans and we are discovering all sorts of new things as we go along. A recent clinical study has shown that utilizing high-dose immunosuppressive therapy then following it up with a transplantation of the patient’s own blood making stem cells can create a sustained state of remission for relapse-remitting multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a devastating autoimmune disease that causes the body’s own immune system to target and attack its own nervous system causing a range of debilitating effects to the person.

The symptoms that people with MS experience can range from a number of debilitating things such as fatigue and chronic pain as well as decreasing control of motor and speech functions. Most commonly the form of MS seen is relapse-remitting MS which causes those who experience it to go through periods of seeming wellness to massive flare ups of symptoms.

This new experiment sho wed that 69% of recipients of this trial treatment, referred to as high-dose immunosuppressive therapy and autologous hematopoietic cell transplant, (HDIT/HCT), had survived and showed no signs of progressive degeneration, no new brain lesions or relapse of MS symptoms. Studies show that other current MS treatments have significantly lower success rates.

Dr. Shiva Gopal Vasishta is a highly trained neurological physician. Dr. Vasishta attended medical school at Government Medical College Nagpur and did his residency at Tufts Medical Center specializing in Neurology. Dr. Shiva Vasishta completed his Neurology residency at Boston University Medical Center and currently practices out of Voorhees, New Jersey.

Dr. Vasishta graduated and began practicing early in his life and has accumulated over 38 years of experience and brings his expertise to the field every day, helping those who suffer a variety of neurological disorders, including MS.

The Efforts that Avi Weisfogel has been Making to Treat Sleep Apnea

There are many people in the medical field who believe that sleep apnea is an almost impossible to solve mystery. Well, there is a group of doctors that have been studying the disorder and they are making headways in understanding the disorder and looking for appropriate therapies that can help treat it. Dr. Avi Weisfogel has been leading the team that is looking into the disorder and has established that there is a connection between sleep apnea and all lifestyle diseases that affect the cardiovascular system. The team has therefore doubled their efforts in getting treatment for the disorder.

One of the challenges that the people looking for a solution to the disorder face is the fact that almost 9 out of 10 of people that suffer from sleep apnea have not been properly diagnosed with the condition. Lack of diagnosis means that they are not actively looking for any form of treatment; Dr. Avi hopes that his team can create more awareness about the problem so that people can look for a diagnosis.

A model has been created by the team to make sure that a sensible treatment has been achieved. The team is comprised of dentists and physicians. There are well equipped labs and they have also hired sleep experts to help with the study. The dentists are important to the process because they are the ones who mostly diagnose the condition.

Sleep apnea is a challenging problem for most patients because it puts them under a lot of stress. Studies have shown that people who suffer from the condition wake up more than 30 times within the same night. The treatment model is focusing on stimulating the upper airways thus helping people breathe better at night. The machine they have modeled has already gotten FDA approval.

Avi Weisfogel

Avi is a trained and well experienced dentist. He has been practicing since the year 2000. He is a graduate of Rutgers University and also undertook additional training in dentistry. He is a well respected and loved member of the medical community. He has received numerous community awards for his charisma, expertise and his love for helping humanity.
