Algologist – pain therapist who is familiar with pain formation mechanisms and is able to help prevent the suffering caused by pain.

Pain is the body’s warning signal that our existence is threatened. Therefore, the pain must be taken seriously, and the warning signs should not be silenced with pain relief medication. It is important to find the cause of pain and, if possible, a cure for their cause. If the disease is incurable or chronic pain formation system is irreversibly damaged, chronic pain really never stops persisting.

There are a number of chronic diseases causing pain – back, neck and shoulder pain, headache and migraine, rheumatism, joint pain, osteoarthritis, neuropathic pain due to diabetes, cancer, etc.

If the pain is very strong and persists over long period of time, the effects can be devastating on both mental and physical quality of life.

Algologist helps to relieve pain and to find a suitable solution.

Quality pain therapy can significantly improve well-being.

We offer allergist consultations and treatment of allergic illnesses.

Frequently asked questions before allergist consultation:

  • Could prolonged rhinitis be allergy related?
  • Could a long-term cough or coughing fits be allergy related?
  • Are watery eyes and itchy skin associated with allergies?
  • What can be done to clarify the cause of these complaints?
  • What can be done to cure allergies and improve a patient’s quality of life?

Most of the initial visit is spent with the patient answering questions on:

  • childhood and adult diseases;
  • complaint intensity in different seasons, different times of day and during physical exertion;
  • about well-being while in different rooms and surroundings;
  • about possible complaints relating to food;
  • efficacy of trialed treatments and medcines, etc.

The doctor will assess the patient’s skin, subcutaneous tissue, lymph node condition, examine the cardio – vascular system, and within limits will also assess the digestive system.

If no anti-allergy medications have been used eight to ten days prior the visit, it is possible to do skin prick tests.

Where there is shortness of breath, coughing or stridor, patients need to take a chest x-ray examination of thoracic organs, external respiratory function tests and breathing tests with bronchodilator medication.

If during the first visit a diagnosis is not specified further examinations are required:

  • oesophagus, stomach examinations;
  • allergy blood tests;
  • bronchoprovocation testing;
  • nitrous oxide in the expired air;
  • CT of thoracic organs;
  • ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctor consultation;
  • gastroenterologist consultation.

Important factors in the treatment of allergies and prevention:

  • suitable environment (living rooms without carpets, animals and green plants to reduce the quantity of a precipitating allergen);
  • herbal remedy to fight house dust mites;
  • air filters in your apartment and workplace;
  • food selection;
  • suitable physical activity;
  • the need for self-control.

In pollen or house dust mite allergy cases allergen immunotherapy (vaccination) is considered as a  probable treatment. At the beginning a vaccine is administered once a week for three to four months. Later, injections are administered once a month for three to five years. The vaccine can also be taken orally.

Allergist consultations are paid by insurance companies.

Anaesthetists

Anaesthetists

Anaesthetist provides anaesthesia or narcosis and the maintenance of patient’s vital processes during surgeries and other medical manipulations. They also remove the pain during surgery and help to reduce it after surgery.

The doctor will examine the patient’s medical condition, results of other examinations and analysis, medical history, planned surgeries or types of medical manipulations. After that the doctor will assess whether an anaesthesia is possible and permissible for this particular patient. The anaesthesiologist will also assess any potential risks of anaesthesia, choose an appropriate and acceptable type of anaesthesia for each person and develop an anaesthesia plan for every individual patient. Relevant issues are discussed with patients and other professionals.

For the surgery to run smoothly:

  • We will help you choose the most suitable type of anaesthesia for your intended surgery;
  • We will prepare you before surgery and provide you with post-operative treatment;
  • We will provide you with general information about the types of anaesthesia and personalized advice on your choice of anaesthesia, therefore reducing psychological distress before surgery;
  • Before and after the surgery you will be monitored and taken care of by our staff.

For day-patient surgical operations the ARS Medcial company provides two types of analgesia – general anaesthesia or spinal anaesthesia.

Note:

General anaesthesia is a set of measures that, when the medication is administered(intravenously and by inhalation), achieves the loss of consciousness and painful sensations, as well as relaxing muscles, creating the conditions necessary for surgery. Before anaesthesia a cannula is always administered intravenously. It allows medication to be administered uninterrupted during the operation.

Through administering anaesthetic substances, consciousness is cut off and sleep-like state is maintained throughout the duration of the surgery. Using a mask or inhalation tube to access deeper airways the air is supplied in addition to oxygen and, if necessary, provide full ventilatory support. Tubes entered into airways (especially the trachea) fully protect the airways from the inhalation of saliva or stomach contents. At the end of the surgery anaesthetics are not supplied, their effect diminishes, conciousness returns, breathing and other vital function paramenters stabilise. At the end of the surgery you will be awoken, monitored and taken care of by our staff until you are ready to go home.

Spinal anaesthesia or regional anaesthesia provides pain relief in that specific part of the body on which the surgery will be performed – one or both of the legs/ posterior area. A local anaesthetic is administered around nerves which transport sensations from this region. This substance blocks nerve impulse transmission achieving insensitivity in the required area, meaning that the patient can stay awake during the surgery. During the operation only sedatives are administered, which reduce the potential psychological discomfort.

The most suitable type of anesthesia

The anaesthetist will select and recommend the most suitable type of anaesthesia, depending on the part of the body where the surgery will be performed. For example:

  • For urology or proctology surgeries the most appropriate type of anaethesia is spinal anaesthesia, also known as a sciatic nerve block. Sciatic nerve block gives numbness to the buttocks, keeping leg movement.
  • For trauma surgeries (arthroscopies) the most suitable is spinal anaesthesia where numbness occurs in only one of the legs, leaving the other leg free to move. Patients do not experience psychological discomfort as they do not feel paralyzed.

Note:

Numbness in the relevant part of the body will disappear after a few hours and the patient will be ready to return home. Spinal anaesthesia has a lesser effect on breathing and blood circulation, therefore it is more suitable for outpatient surgery.

At the ARS Medical Company day surgery anaesthesia services are provided by a physician anaesthesiologist – reanimatologist Dr. Aelita MEDJĀNE.

Anaesthesia services for lithotripsy procedures are provided by a physician anaethesiologist – reanimatologist Dr. Irēna Leite.

Cardiologists

Cardiovascular diseases are typical of our age and are promoted by stress, sedentary lifestyles, poor nutrition and harmful habits. Increasing numbers of younger people are affected each year.

If you experience pain in the chest area, an erratic heartbeat and shortness of breath after slight activity – do not hesitate to check your heart health. At least once a year, check blood pressure, remember the basic principles of healthy eating, and check the lipids and cholesterol in the blood. High blood pressure and high low-density cholesterol is an important risk factor for serious cardiovascular diseases, but often does not cause any symptoms.

Cardiology specialists give consultations and draw up a comprehensive plan for an examination to assess the severity of disease, and select the most appropriate treatment.

We can perform a variety of heart examinations:

  • Electrocardiogram at rest (ECG);
  • Cardiac stress test;
  • Ultrasound exams – echocardiography and Doppler (including transoesophageal) – also for children;
  • Holter monitoring (24 hour ECG recording);
  • Continuous computerized blood pressure registration.

The ARS Medical Center is the only Latvian out-patient institution where it is possible to perform a multilayer CT coronary angiography using modern 64-layer CT equipment. CT coronary angiography is a non-invasive method of heart (coronary) vascular permeability determination. Unlike invasive coronary angiography, CT coronary angiography does not require vascular catheterisation. The method is well tolerated, painless and performed on an outpatient basis.

We care for patients who suffer from chronic heart diseases. Cardiovascular diseases often occur together with diabetes, atherosclerosis affects the blood vessels of the brain, and other organ systems can be damaged too – kidneys, eyes. Therefore, various specialists are involved in the treatment process such as endocrinologists, ophthalmologists, nephrologists, neurologists, nutritionists and others.

Children also may suffer from cardiovascular diseases – ailments of the heart valves or the heart muscle changes. In our clinic consultations are given by our paediatric cardiologist and echocardiography specialist Dr. Inguna Lubaua. We perform foetal echocardiography and Doppler echocardiography examinations in cases of familial congenital heart diseases or in cases of suspected foetal heart disease during pregnancy.

Endocrinologists at the ARS Medical Centre consult in cases of diabetes, thyroid, pituitary, adrenal, metabolic disorders, increased body weight and other endocrine diseases.

A full examination is important in order to set a diagnosis and choose an appropriate treatment tactic, executed with the most sophisticated methods:

  • The widest range or laboratory and hormonal diagnostic options are available at the E.Gulbis laboratory
  • Ultrasound examinations (thyroid, abdominal organs, kidney, head and leg vascular examinations)
  • CT, including angiography examinations,
  • Magnetic resonance imaging,
  • Scintigraphic examinations (thyroid nodules and parathyroid glands, kidney function determination)

The most common of endocrine diseases – diabetes and its complications – affect almost all organ systems. Therefore it is important that a wide variety of specialists are involved in the treatment process, such as cardiologists, neurologists, nephrologists, eye doctors, nutritionists and other specialists. Additionally, if the glucose metabolism is disrupted during pregnancy, the treatment requires close cooperation with gynaecologist.

The ARS Medical Centre employs highly qualified and experienced doctors – endocrinologists, who will both accurately diagnose disease and choose the best method of treatment.

Flebologs (vēnu ārsts)

Ja  Jūs traucē pazīmes, kas norāda uz kāju vēnu saslimšanu – kā kāju pietūkums un “smaguma” sajūta, redzami vēnu mezgli vai kapilāru tīklojums – ir laiks doties pie flebologa. Flebologi ir speciālisti, kuri nodarbojas ar dažādu vēnu slimību diagnostiku un ārstēšanu. Biežākās vēnu slimības ir venozās asinsrites nepietiekamība, dziļo vēnu tromboze (nosprostojums) un tromboflebīts, jeb trombozēto vēnu iekaisums.

Mūsu klīnikā iespējams veikt kāju vēnu doplerogrāfisko izmeklēšanu (USG) un saņemt asinsvadu ķirurga- flebologa konsultāciju vienā ārsta apmeklējuma reizē – ietaupot gan laiku, gan naudu.

Ambulatorā praksē visbiežāk nākas saskarties ar venozās asinsrites nepietiekamību, kas izpaužas kā varikozi paplašinātas vēnas un vēnu zīmējums uz ādas. Šīs saslimšanas cēloņi ir dažādi – gan iedzimta nosliece uz vēnu sieniņu vājumu, gan sēdošs dzīvesveids, gan darbs profesijās, kur nepieciešams ilgu laiku pavadīt stāvus,  liela fiziska slodze (piem. sportistiem), arī grūtniecība un citi faktori.

Lai likvidētu šīs saslimšanas nepatīkamās vizuālās izpausmes, tiek lietotas dažādas metodes. Mūsu klīnikas dienas stacionārā, operējot pacientus, tiek lietota endolumināla lāzerablācija un virspusējo vēnu mikroķirurģiska izņemšana, savukārt kapilāru paplašinājumu likvidēšanai izmantojam putu skleroterapijas metodi.

Katram pacientam piemērotākā vēnu operācija vai operatīvo metožu kombinācija tiek izvēlēta, vadoties no pacienta vispārējā stāvokļa un slimības īpatnībām, kā arī iepriekš asinsvadus rūpīgi izmeklējot ar asinsvadu ultrasonogrāfijas metodi.

Pati vēnu operācija tiek veikta dienas stacionārā, bet jau pēc dažām stundām pacients var doties mājās. Par vēnu operācijām vairāk lasiet sadaļā Vēnu operācijas.

Gan varikozo vēnu slimības profilaksei, gan pēc operācijām nepieciešamas kompresijas zeķes, kuru uzdevums ir palīdzēt venozajai asinsritei kāju asinsvados. Par mūsu kompresijas zeķu piedāvājumu lasiet sadaļā Kompresijas zeķes.

Speech therapist-phoniatrician

Speech therapist-phoniatrician
Vārds Uzvārds

A speech therapist is a doctor specialising in working with children and adults to identify the sounds missing in one’s speech and to teach the correct pronunciation of any sounds pronounced incorrectly.

Phonopaedia is a subdivision of speech therapy that combines knowledge of methods and techniques for eliminating voice impairments. The phoniatrician’s scope of competence covers issues related to the assessment of voice function and diagnostics for purposes of speech therapy as well as prevention of voice impairments.

Indications for seeking a consultation?

Voice impairments can occur at any age and are observed in 5-6 per cent of children and 3 per cent of adults. People working in professions based on the use of voice – professional singers, teachers, actors, presenters, barristers etc – are among the regular patients. Complete or partial loss of voice due to overload affects the ability to work and causes discomfort. A large proportion of laryngeal disorders are marked by voice function impairment:

  • Organic disorders: singer’s nodes, polyps, Reinke’s oedema, haemorrhages;
  • Functional disorders: dysphonia (various types), phonasthenia, abnormal voice mutations in children during puberty;
  • Oncological diseases of the larynx (in cases where the client has undergone laryngectomy, an important part of the speech therapist’s or phoniatrician’s work is to teach the use of voice required for communication);
  • Laryngeal nerve paresis etc.

Preparing for a visit

When going to see a speech therapist, you should take with you all abstracts from your medical record or discharge reports provided by hospitals, outpatient clinics and specialists, if any, that are related to the specific disorder or disease. This helps the doctor to obtain maximum information which facilitates establishing the diagnosis and helps choose the most appropriate treatment strategy. Besides, this information saves time and money as it may turn out that some of the medical examinations required have already been performed and it is not necessary to repeat them.

Course of treatment?

Prevention of voice impairments is a team work involving physicians, speech therapists or phoniatricians, psychologists and physiotherapists. Voice therapy is started upon doctor’s recommendations specifying the desired starting time of phonology exercises and the desired stress intensity of vocal cords. In case of individual functional voice impairments, e.g. in case of phonasthenia, a phoniatrician may perform an assessment of the orotundity (degree of fullness, strength and clarity) and quality of the voice and adopt an individual decision on starting exercises. A phoniatrician performs an auditory assessment of the voice.

The purpose of the phoniatrician’s work is to restore the sonority of the voice and to introduce it in the spontaneous speech. In the phoniatrician’s work, a great deal of attention must be paid to the prevention of voice impairments because only a well-trained voice and awareness of the vocal hygiene prevents loss of the voice. The most frequent methods used for the correction of voice impairments are phonopaedic methods which are based on a balanced gradual activation of the laryngeal muscles and development of proper breathing as well as use of orthophonic exercises.

Phonopaedic programme:

  • Regimen to restrict voice usage;
  • Breathing exercises;
  • Exercises for strengthening neck and larynx muscles;
  • Exercises for the voice;
  • Vocal exercises.

Optical Photo-Plantoscopy – FOOT EXPRESS DIAGNOSTICS

Photo-plantoscopy is used to perform functional tests of the feet that help to monitor changes in the heel and other feet bones and identify overloaded segments of the foot.

An optical photo-plantoscopy is performed using a plantoscope illuminated by LED lights and additionally equipped with a built-in HD camera that takes pictures and videos of the feet.

The images are recorded and stored in a digital format so that foot changes over a specific period of time, if any, can be compared and evaluated during the next visits.

Using this device, a technical orthopaedist performs an analysis of the posture, identification of the type and grade of flat feet (fallen arches), and also evaluates whether a technical aid is required. A medical report with an individual recommendation plan is prepared and issued for each client.

When is photo-plantoscopy recommended?

  • It enables effective diagnostics not only for the flat feet but also for any other foot pathologies as well as for preventive purposes in case of musculoskeletal and neurological disorders.
  • For people who have thickenings in their feet and problems in finding appropriate footwear.
  • For athletes who need comfortable insoles for their sports shoes according to the individual sports specialisation requirements.

We provide assistance for various bone and joint diseases and injuries. If necessary, experts refer patients for additional tests, such as x-rays, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, multilayer computed tomography and scintigraphy all which can be done in our medical institution.

The human skeleton consists of approximately 206 bones that are connected with each other as immovable joints, joints with a limited movement and flexible joints. In everyday life we don’t think about the mechanics of these movements. You raise your arm above your head or bend your knee without thinking. We are accustomed to relying on our bodies until … suddenly something starts to interfere.

One of the most frequently traumatized and the more vulnerable joints is the knee. Extensive load and high amplitude movements inflicted upon knee joints as well as the complex structure of the joint makes it vulnerable to frequent injury and illness.

What are the most common knee complaints?

Patient complaints can be divided into two groups – pain and instability.

Causes of knee joint pain:

  • Pain in young people is more often associated with damage to the meniscus (patients remember the trauma episode, from which the complaint has developed).
  • Pain for middle age people is frequently characterized by a meniscus tear, without a single injury – a rupture develops gradually, tissues tear and disintegrate under extensive loads (similar to a worn cloth).
  • Pain in older people is generally due to joint deformation – arthrosis (a degenerative, progressive disease of the joints, which is characterized by changes in the articular surfaces). Joints forming cartilage surface become uneven and meniscuses get damaged too. With arthrosis progression changes in the bones appear – osteoarthrosis. It is a slowly progressive disease of the joints, which is characterized by entire joint structure damage, especially cartilage degradation and new bone formation (bone spurs), which causes structural and functional changes in the joints.

The second group of complaints is a feeling of insecurity or instability in the knee joint. The most common reason is a ligament tear. Untreated and unstable joints over time will be accompanied by pain.

Asinsvadu ķirurģija ārstē asinsvadu sistēmas, artēriju un vēnu  slimības, pielietojot medikamentozas un ķirurģiskas metodes. Fleboloģija ir asinsvadu kirurģijas nozare, kas ārstē vēnu slimības (vairāk lasīt šeit).

Asinsvadu sistēmas bojājumi rodas aterosklerozes rezultātā. Ateroskleroze ir viena no biežāk sastopamajām asinsvadu slimībām, kas  sašaurina asinsvadus vai arī  tos slēdz. Progresējot aterosklerozei, attīstās maģistrālo artēriju slimības. Nereti  artēriju slimības (sašaurinājumi, slēgumi, asinsvadu sieniņu pārmaiņas – aneirismas) noved pie citu orgānu bojājumiem.  Daži piemēri:

  • kāju artēriju stenozes (artēriju sašaurināšanās) vai oklūzijas (slēgšanās) gadījumos pacients sūdzas par izteiktām sāpēm kājās (staigājot),   mijklibošanu un salšanas sajūtu kājās.  Dažreiz sāpes kājās atkārtojas arī miera stāvoklī un naktīs. Slimībai progresējot, parādās trofiskas čūlas uz pēdam, var attīstīties gangrēna.
  • miega artērijām ievērojami sašaurinoties, ir raksturīgas galvas sāpes, reiboņi, koordinācijas traucējumi, īslaicīgs aklums, samaņas zuduma epizodes, bet smagākajos gadījumos attīstās galvas smadzeņu infarkts ar attiecīgās ķermeņa puses paralīzi vai parēzi.
  • paplašinoties vēdera aortas  aneirismam līdz 5 cm diametrā un lielākam, rodas riska faktori tās plīsumam.

Asinsvadu saslimšanu veicina šādi faktori:

  • smēķēšana;
  • aptaukošanās;
  • cukura diabēts;
  • paaugstināts asinsspiediens;
  • paaugstināts holesterīna līmenis asinīs;
  • cilvēka vecums – vīrieši virs 45 gadiem, sievietes virs 55 gadiem;
  • asinsvadu slimības iepriekšējās paaudzēs.

Agrīna un precīza asinsvadu artēriju patoloģiju diagnostika, kā arī  savlaicīga to ārstēšana ļauj saglabāt pacienta dzīves kvalitāti.  Tādēļ liela nozīme, izvēloties ārstēšanas taktiku, ir precīzai diagnostikai, izmantojot mūsdienīgas un ļoti informatīvas metodes  – Duplex asinsvadu ultrasonogrāfiju, CT angiogrāfiju, u.c.
