In-Office Hemorrhoid Treatment Provides Instant Relief BY EDUARDO RUAN, MD Board Certified Gastroenterologist

We are excited to announce that our office is now offering a new hemorrhoid banding treatment. This new system allows the treatment of internal hemorrhoids in the office setting, without surgery or pain. Although a frequently neglected area of healthcare, hemorrhoids affect more than 50% of the population over 30 years old. Prior to this procedure, definitive treatment for hemorrhoid was frequently avoided. Weary of the pain and discomfort associated with traditional hemorrhoid surgery, patients used to suffer for years with symptoms that would come and go, using countless creams, ointments

and suppositories, which only provided partial and temporary relief. The CRH-O’Regan ® rubber band ligation system consists of cutting off the internal hemorrhoids blood supply with a tiny rubber that is faster, more accurate, more comfortable and less likely to result in post-procedure pain and bleeding. This innovative technique is safe and effective. It does not require a preparation and, being virtually painless, can be done without anesthesia. It is done in three sessions, taking very few minutes each time. Patients are able to return to work immediately after the procedure. Dr. Eduardo Ruan is board certified in Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine and has been in private practice since 1996 with Gastroenterology Care Center.

Preschoolers interact at Kids Learning Adventure school in Coral Gables. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– BY ROSANA EMANUELLI

Kids Learning Adventure (KLA), an innovative Reggio Emilia-inspired preschool, celebrated the grand opening of its second location in Coral Gables on Thursday, Dec. 10, a year after opening its first pre-school in Brickell. The event, conducted at the new school located at 4573 Ponce de Leon Blvd., honored parents, family and friends of the community that supported the opening of the school. More than 150 guests attended the event and enjoyed live music, delicious hors d’oeuvres and wine sponsored by Bodegas Nieto Senetiner. Roberto Ortega, CEO of KLA schools, and Vicky Mas, KLA Coral Gables director, were on hand to personally welcome guests and they spoke to attendees about the inspirational philosophies behind the school’s foundation. “We’re thrilled to expand our wonderful learning experience to the Coral Gables community,” Ortega said. “None of this

would have been possible without the help of parents, friends and members of the community. We thank them for their support and we assure them our new preschool will provide only the highest level of educational excellence.” Drawing upon the inspiration of the Reggio Emilia approach, hailed by Newsweek magazine as having the best preschools in the world, KLA believes that each child constructs his or her own intelligence through direct interaction with the environment and social groups. The Coral Gables pre-school features the most modern and recognized furniture specifically designed for quality early childhood environments. The classroom materials and equipment are selected carefully to accommodate the different ages the school serves. KLA enrolls students from ages 1 to 5 and maintains small classroom sizes and child-to-teacher ratios. To obtain more information, visit online at <>.
