Fort Bend’s Finest in Medicine


High-Quality Inpatient Rehabilitation It is well documented that people who have the opportunity to participate in rehabilitation after an injury, illness or surgery show improved functional outcomes over those who do not. Rehabilitation, in the appropriate setting, provides the greatest potential for a person to return home, becoming active once again in the community. In an inpatient rehabilitation hospital, like HealthSouth Sugar Land Rehabilitation Hospital, a full continuum of rehabilitative programs and services is offered for individuals who have suffered a major accident or illness, including trauma, stroke, head injury, spinal cord injury, amputation, arthritis, chronic pain, neuromuscular and pulmonary diseases. Patients are admitted from acute care hospitals and from home, serving a diverse range of needs. Patient care is led by a medical director who supervises the hospital’s multi-disciplinary team to provide a coordinated program of care including goal setting, treatment plans, family education and discharge planning. “Our success depends on the quality of care provided to every patient,” said Nicholas Hardin, CEO at HealthSouth Sugar Land Rehabilitation Hospital. “Our group is experienced and ready to help patients reach their goals and exceed their expectations to get back home sooner. Our expert teams of independent private practice physicians, Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurses, therapists, case managers and hospital staff members area already working together to provide an exceptional patient experience and become the rehabilitative provider of choice for Sugar Land.” For more information on how an inpatient rehabilitation hospital benefits those recovering from a major life event, contact HealthSouth Sugar Land Rehabilitation Hospital at

Introducing the iLASIK Procedure: Your Wait for Improved Vision Is Over Sugarland Eye & Laser Center is excited to introduce Fort Bend to the ultimate in laser vision correction: the iLASIK Procedure. It is the culmination of everything learned about LASIK over the past decade. Now that the iLASIK Procedure is available, there is no reason to put off laser vision correction surgery. The introduction of the iLASIK Procedure means the wait for improved vision is over. Most people are candidates, and iLASIK technology is advanced and innovative, so it is safe and effective. The iLASIK Procedure is not complicated—it is fast and virtually painless. The technology used in the iLASIK Procedure is very mature and safe. Doctors have been doing LASIK for over a decade. Nearly 32 million LASIK procedures have been performed to date, making it the most common elective vision procedure in the U.S. In fact, all branches of the U.S. military and NASA recently allowed LASIK for their servicemen and women thanks to studies using iLASIK technology. The reality is that the majority of people who meet the age and general health requirements are in fact good candidates for the iLASIK Procedure. There are some conditions that exclude certain patients, but whether patients have nearsightedness, farsightedness or an astigmatism, most patients can still have the iLASIK procedure. If you are at least 21 years old, are in good general health and have had a stable vision prescription for at least one year, call Sugarland Eye & Laser Center at 281-240-0478 for a personal consultation.
