Nobody likes varicose veins. For some people they even cause severe, aching pain. If varicose veins are keeping you from living your life to the fullest, consider scheduling an appointment at North Colorado Medical Center's Vein Clinic. Treating your varicose veins is more than just a cosmetic procedure, and it's important that you have them evaluated and treated by a medical professional.

As we visit and interview these exceptional professionals, I continue to be impressed with the quality of care we have in this region. And, it is with a great deal of pride that we expand our medical and wellness issues to include this October issue of Northern Colorado Medical and Wellness.
We at Style have worked hard these past 23 years uplifting our region and responding to the needs of our Colorado Front Range. And, as this area (north of Denver proper) has grown into being a regional healthcare center, we have responded with medical and wellness publications packed full of timely and informative articles with expertise from some of our region’s finest specialists and healthcare providers. As we visit and interview these exceptional professionals, I continue to be impressed with the quality of care we have in this region. And, it is with a great deal of pride that we expand our medical and wellness issues to include this October issue of Northern Colorado Medical and Wellness. This issue spans a wide range of interesting and compelling topics. Get acquainted with Drs. Smolenski and Janssen at the Center for Spinal Disorders who provide highly skilled interventional pain management. Many of us Baby Boomers have back issues that could be mitigated, I am sure, with their expertise. Since I have experienced quite a few surgeries over the years, anesthesia was a topic that interested me. Read up on Dr. Jan Gillespie’s informative overview of this important and interesting aspect of medicine. Early detection is the key to recovery and survival from breast cancer and today the American Cancer Society recommends MRI’s, and breast ultrasound alongside mammograms for high-risk patients. This additional non-invasive procedure complements the standard screening methods and will detect more of the significant disease and also impact treatment decisions. The breast MRI’s enable early
Welcome to this Issue detection when treatment is easier and survival is greatest. Alongside these and many other sound articles that inform and inspire in this issue, we have highlighted several ancient complementary care modalities that are helpful for a wide range of conditions. I don’t happen to believe that what’s new has to necessarily eradicate something older. I believe good things can coexist. Acupuncture, for example, has been used for more than 2,000 years by the Chinese and, as of late, has been enjoying a burgeoning acceptance in the West. In fact, The World Health Organization recommends acupuncture for many respiratory diseases, eye and mouth problems, orthopedic and neurological disorders and gastrointestinal ailments among others. And, it has also shown to relieve nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy. Get acquainted with Diana Hermann, Zari Pirasteh, Dianne Batchelder, Lauri Pointer, Melissa Osmun, and Dr. Michael Sutton; all are outstanding holistic healthcare providers whose approach to therapy places a greater emphasis on the relationship of mind, body, and spirit. Thank you for your on-going support of Style. We truly work very hard to bring you interesting and vital magazines with important and informative articles. And we have enjoyed the increasing number of letters, emails, and calls commenting on our issues and suggesting future topics. We love hearing from you. Wishing each of you good health,
