    At the buffet table, use a salad plate to keep your portions smaller and cut down on calories.  Stay away from unhealthy saturated fat, anything creamy, cheesy or buttery.  Avoid or limit foods that will make your blood sugar spike...sugry cocktails, desserts, potatoes, pasta, rice and bread.

  • What Does an Orthopedic Surgeon in City of Orange Cost?

    in Health

    When to Visit an Orthopedic Surgeon in the City of Orange
    Visiting an orthopedist is your first step to getting treatment for your condition. It is not normal to experience pain on a regular basis, even if you are getting older or train athletically. Orthopedic problems can have consequences that affect many aspects of your overall health and quality of life, so it is best to visit a doctor as soon as you believe there is a problem.
    Factors Influencing Cost
    Many factors influence how expensive treatment by an orthopedic surgeon in the City of Orange is. Some of the most influential factors include:
    - Whether surgery is necessary
    - Type of surgery used
    - Local cost of living
    - Fluctuations in the cost of medication and materials
    - The physician’s dedication to keeping costs low
    Managing the Cost of Treatment
    The cost of being treated by an orthopedic surgeon in the City of Orange should be covered by your insurance plan, since your orthopedist will be treating a medical condition. Therefore, the biggest factor that determines the cost of your treatment is the terms of your insurance coverage. If you have a higher deductible and copay, you may pay a large portion of the cost out-of-pocket. Those with a lower deductible may find the cost more manageable.

  • How Long Does it Take To Recover From ACL Surgery

    in Health

    What to Expect During Recovery
    ACL surgery can normally be performed arthroscopically; that is, the doctor operates on the knee by making tiny incisions, through which a camera and small tools are inserted. One of the greatest advantages of arthrosocopic surgery is the fact that it minimizes the recovery time.
    How to Minimize Your Recovery Time
    Some recovery time is unavoidable, and recovery time can vary from patient to patient based on individual healing times which are impossible to control. However, patients can take steps to ensure that there is nothing in the way of recovering as quickly as possible. Some steps you can take to minimize your recovery time include:
    - Eat a healthy diet for several weeks before and after the surgery
    - Get plenty of sleep
    - Avoid smoking for several weeks before and after surgery
    - Have some meals readily available for the first few days after surgery
    - If you have young children, arrange for child care during the first few days after surgery
    - Avoid over-exerting yourself
    - Be sure to follow your doctor’s recommendations regarding how active you should be, such as walking around for a few minutes on the first day
    - Attend and fully participate in physical therapy

  • Dr. Howard Marans: Expert in Internal Fixation Procedures

    in Health

    Fractured bones or dislocated joints arising from injuries may require surgery that involves internal fixation. Internal fixation is a surgical procedure which involves attaching a device to a bone in order to stabilize it and help it heal or regain functionality of joints. Dr. Howard Marans has performed many of these operations and has the capability of performing them to restore the patient’s normal functions.
    Internal fixation specifically involves attaching implants, such as plates, rods or pins, to fractured or separated bone parts through open-reduction surgery, allowing the surgeon to reach the injured bone parts and realigning or restoring their normal position and fixing them in place using the implants. At most one week in the hospital is required for patients before they are discharged. Normally, physical therapy is required in order to attain fast recovery and allow patients to go back to their normal activities.
    Most simple fractures, however, do not require open reduction and internal fixation. Dr. Marans recommends casting the injured part and keeping it immobile so that the bone can repair itself. In more serious fractures, immediate medical care and surgery must be undertaken in order to facilitate the healing and restore the motor ability of the patient as well as the strength of the muscles of the injured parts.
    Thanks to Dr. Howard Marans and his staff, patients who require their specialized medical care have someone to turn to for proper treatment and full recovery.
