Other Specialist Physicians
Ear, Nose & Throat specialists, also called otolaryngologists, specialize in the medical and surgical treatment of diseases and disorders of the ear, nose and throat, including ear infections, hearing loss, balance disorders, tinnitus, birth defects of the inner and outer ears and cranial nerve disorders; sinusitis, allergies, smell disorders, polyps, deviated septum and sleep disorders; speech and voice disorders and swallowing problems; benign and malignant tumors of the head/neck, facial trauma and facial deformities.
Interventional radiologists are board-certified physicians who specialize in minimally invasive, targeted treatments. They offer the most in-depth knowledge of the least invasive treatments available coupled with diagnostic and clinical experience across all specialties. They use X-rays, MRI and other imaging to advance a catheter in the body, usually in an artery, to deliver treatment at the source of a disease non-surgically.
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation - Scott Akers, M.D.
Physical medicine specialists treat diseases and disorders affecting the musculoskeletal system using a non-surgical approach. This may include physical therapy, injections and other targeted treatments. Dr. Akers earned his medical degree from West Virginia School of Medicine and completed residency at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center.
Inside you are thousands of miles of arteries, veins and capillaries that deliver blood, vital fluids, antibodies and nutrients throughout your body. This network is called the vascular system. This system is incredibly strong - yet fragile. And like other parts of your body, it can develop disease, become damaged, or fail to work properly.
Unfortunately, many people don't recognize the signs and symptoms of vascular disease. They mistakenly attribute symptoms to "getting older" and, as a result, suffer unnecessary pain and disability.
At King's Daughters, we're on a mission to bring vascular disease out of the shadows.
