Annual physicals and sports physicals can be scheduled at anytime, as well as EKG, spirometry for lung function, tympanometry for hearing, fat percentage and BMI diagnostics for weight management.

We also pride ourselves on staying up-to-date on the latest medical advances. Currently, new research is taking place on stem cell treatments:

Stem Cell Therapy – Stem cell therapy is one of the most advanced and most promising new medical treatments. Stem cell therapy is being used to treat or prevent a variety of conditions and diseases. The most widely used stem cell therapy is a bone marrow transplant. Other therapies may be derived from umbilical cord blood and mesenchymal stem cells from human fat. Ongoing research is looking to develop other sources of stem cells and apply stem cell therapy to spinal cord injuries, vision impairment, neurodegenerative diseases, orthopedic injuries and conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and even tooth loss.

Stem Cell Surgery – Stem cell surgery is a form of stem cell therapy being used by a growing number of physicians in several fields of medicine. Stem cell surgery involves a small incision in a part of the body where there are collected fat cells. Using a thin metal cannula and a mini-liposuction procedure, doctors extract fat cells and then separate out the mesenchymal stem cells and proteins called cytokines, which have a powerful healing effect, secreting proteins that improve blood flow, reduce inflammation and facilitate recovery. Stem cell surgery shows great promise, especially for the treatment of arthritis and joint problems.
We have helped thousands of men, women and children live healthier, longer, more fulfilling lives throughout Oakton, Great Falls, McLean, Middleburg, South Riding, Aldie, Potomac, Leesburg, Clifton, Fairfax Station and close-by communities in Arlington County and Loudon County.
