When Is Sinus Surgery Necessary?
One of the specialties of Dr. Larian, expert head and neck surgeon in Los Angeles, is helping patients overcome sinus related problems through minimally invasive sinus surgery. However, two of the most common questions that Dr. Larian hears often is when is sinus surgery necessary, and how do you know if you’re a good candidate. To better help his patients understand their options, Dr. Larian has gathered helpful tips and answers to the various sinus surgeries offered at the CENTER for Advanced Head & Neck Surgery in Los Angeles.
A Bath For Your Nose!
All of us are aware of the importance of bathing to improve our bodily hygiene, but did you know that giving your nose a bath from time to time could help improve your sinuses? In this blog, Dr. Larian, world-renowned sinus surgeon in Los Angeles, describes a helpful practice that may offer additional relief to sufferers of chronic sinus infections!
A Real Link Between Cell Phones & Thyroid Cancer?
According to new research by scientists in Tel-Aviv, the very first true link between thyroid cancer and cellular phone radiation may have been identified. Though it’s very clear that more research is necessary to continue developing this theory, Dr. Larian, world-renowned thyroid surgeon and director of the CENTER for Advanced Head & Neck Surgery in Los Angeles, believes this is a successful step forward in fully understanding the condition.
Easy Steps To Improve Your Thyroid Function
If you had to pick an organ that you thought was important to take care of, where does your mind go? We’re betting you’re probably thinking about your heart, brain, or maybe even your lungs. While these are all extremely important and integral parts of our bodies, expert head and neck surgeon Dr. Larian thinks there is one other gland that should be on this list—the thyroid!
What Is Graves’ Disease?
Graves’ Disease is a condition affecting the thyroid and is sometimes known as thyroid eye disease. It can occur as a result of an overactive thyroid gland and is classified as an autoimmune disorder. Because the thyroid isn’t functioning properly, a person with Graves’ Disease produces antibodies that grab a hold of thyroid cells which then stimulate the same cells to produce too much thyroid hormone. To determine whether or not a patient is suffering from thyroid eye disease, laboratory tests including blood work and a thyroid scan may be necessary.
Understanding Thyroid Cancer Risk Factors
Thyroid cancer is a common disease in the United States, affecting more than 50, 000 people every year. As a board certified head and neck surgeon, Dr. Larian understands the importance of sharing potential risk factors with his patients so that the disease may be caught early and treated in a timely fashion, which ultimately results in a very successful prognosis.
Distinguishing Snoring & Sleep Apnea
Does your husband or wife constantly complain about your snoring? Are you tired throughout most of your day because you’re sleep patterns are constantly interrupted? Your condition may be more serious than you think, as snoring is commonly a symptom of sleep apnea, a disorder that causes a person to stop breathing periodically throughout the night. However, when a person is unsure if they are suffering from sleep apnea, other symptoms come into play. For example, because sleep patterns are disrupted nightly, those suffering from the condition may also be excessively tired during the day, anxious, and even nod off while working.
Maintaining An Ideal Weight After Thyroid Surgery
The thyroid gland is very instrumental in our bodies for a number of reasons, most importantly for releasing hormones that regulate growth, metabolism, and even our heart rate. When our thyroid becomes problematic, which may be due to thyroid cancer, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and several other conditions, these hormones are no longer regulated properly, which can lead to varying degrees of symptoms. Thyroid disorder symptoms can include fatigue, weight gain, weight loss, muscle pain, constipation, and even an increased sensitivity to cold weather.
Brooke Burke Announces Thyroid Cancer
Recently, television personality Brooke Burke announced that she would undergo a thyroidectomy to defeat her newly diagnosed thyroid cancer. Brooke isn’t new to disorders of the thyroid, as she has been a previous sufferer of Hashimoto’s disease, a condition in which the thyroid becomes inflamed and then in time functions less. After being encouraged by her friend to undergo a thyroid ultrasound, Brooke Burke was diagnosed. Instead of letting thyroid cancer get the best of her, Brooke plans on turning her battle into positivity and success by continuing to educate others on the condition.
