Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Services
At Las Vegas Metabolic and Hormonal Medicine, Dr. Tice can identify and treat a number of diseases and symptoms using the latest therapies and treatments. Some of the services Dr. Tice offers include:
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Dr. Tice uses several delivery forms for hormone treatment. These include pellets, injections, topical, suppository and rarely oral forms depending on the hormone. The different routes will be explained.
Autonomic Nervous System Testing
The autonomic nervous system helps maintain internal body stability. Many common diseases we treat have their start in the nervous system. Problems like lightheadedness, dry mouth, dry eyes, impotence, bowel problems, sleep problems, stress and urinary problems can all be examples of disorders of this system.
Advanced Lipid Testing, Pre-Diabetic Testing, Genetic Profiles, Drug Interaction Testing
These are all advanced lab tests that help determine underlying causes of health problems that are not always clearly apparent. Many times a problem can be identified and treated before it causes vital or permanent damage.
Treatment of Joint Aches and Pains as They Relate to Nutritional or Hormonal Imbalances
Many people have joint and back pains that are not necessarily related to degeneration. Vitamin or mineral deficiencies can disrupt the status quo of the body. Hormone deficiency can also cause muscle aches and pains. This can lead to sleep disorders, increase in stress and fatigue. Sometimes it is necessary to inject medication into a joint. This is done with very little pain. Patient satisfaction is paramount.
Botox injections can be used for cosmetic purpose but can also be helpful for those with chronic headaches. Sometimes the muscle strain and fatigue from working at computers causes headaches in the upper neck and forehead areas.
This is a relatively new process for skin resurfacing. It does not use laser or heat so there is no collateral skin damage. It can be used to soften or alleviate scars and create a much smoother skin surface. It can be used on all skin types. Healing times is less than other modes of therapy and is safely, effectively and near painlessly carried out under topical anesthesia in the office.
Skin Lesion Biopsies and Skin Tag Removals
Skin tags are common in people that have developed insulin resistance or are diabetic. These tags can be bothersome and socially an embarrassment. They can easily and effectively get removed in a simple office procedure.
Pre and Post Bariatric weight loss surgical patients assessment and treatment
Many times nutrition and hormone imbalances create problems for the surgical patient. It is necessary in any bariatric surgical patient to address imbalances. Short and long term results are improved and success in reaching your goal is enhanced. Specialized medical treatment compliments the surgical procedure and is indispensable to the long-term outcome.
Dexascan and Body Composition Analysis
This is the gold standard for determining bone density and body fat to muscle ratio. Dexascan is used in diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis (loss of calcium in the bone), which makes the bones brittle. The body composition component is used to establish a baseline and follow changes in muscle to fat ratio with nutritional and exercise therapies.
