Anti-Aging Medicine at Ology Spa in Indianapolis

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

Anti-aging Medicine is often an enigma to the public.  It sounds appealing and of interest but what is it? The marketing hype that surrounds the anti-aging medicine concept makes it difficult to understand how it applies to any everyday person. Anti-aging is a subspecialty of medicine that in no way should be confused with Geriatric Medicine. In fact, Anti-Aging Medicine strives to maintain and energize one’s health so that the affirmities of age can be delay for some time and maybe avoided for the most part.

Anti-Aging Medicine is a relatively new medical specialty for the prevention, treatment, and reversal of health problems caused by both age and disease. Even in the face of continuing aging or ongoing disease, the main goal of Anti-Aging Medicine is to help one feel better by improving how your body functions. The emphasis is on treating the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.

Anti-Aging Medicine treats a wide variety of aging health problems including menopause, andropause (male menopause), depression, sexual dysfunction, fatigue, insomnia, and weight disorders.

Each patient’s evaluation is individualized and extensive leading to a personalized treatment plan at Ology Spa. Through established medical principles and ongoing body chemistry assessments, the program consists of proper nutrition, physical exercise and  fitness, biologically identical hormone therapies, and pharmaceutical-grade neutraceuticals (vitamins, amino acids, minerals, antioxidants, and herbs). Through this program, the goals are to look and feel younger, maintain ideal body weight, improve sleep patterns, restore intimacy and sexual function, eliminate anxiety and depression,  and increase energy,  muscle mass, and strength.

Plastic Surgery and Orthopedic Hand Surgery at IU Health North Hospital

Joint Plastic and Hand Surgery at IU Health North Hospital


Over the past twenty-five years, I have had the opportunity to operate on hundreds of facial trauma patients and repair thousands of facial fractures. I have done so many over the years that I was a co-author on a major 1000 page textbook on facial trauma entitled, Maxillofacial Trauma and Esthetic Facial Reconstruction. Despite this extensive experience, I have never had the opportunity to do a facial fracture repair like I did last week at IU Health North Hospital in Carmel, Indiana.

I was asked to see a patient who fell at home while working and sustained fractures of his wrist and his face. When I saw the patient, his right side of his face was terribly swollen and his hand and wrist were in a cast. Working with an Orthopedic Surgeon, we coordinated a surgery for later that week in which we could repair both problems during the same surgery. Normally, surgeons may do their procedures during the same operation but rarely are surgeries performed concurrently at the same time. (we surgeons are territorial and like our space!) In an one and half-hour operation, this patient had his wrist and four facial bones repaired, not only saving him from having to undergo two separate surgeries on different days but cutting the normal time in surgery for these problems in half!

This joint effort provided a great service to the patient from which he was deeply appreciative.  While many complain about the inefficiency of modern medicine, this surgery case reminds me of its many benefits as well.

Plastic Surgery and Ology Spa Services at IU Health North Hospital
In Carmel, Indiana – Merging Medicine, Wellness, and Beauty


Since 2006, I have opened and operated the second location of the Ology Spa and my plastic surgery practice in the IU Health North Hospital in Carmel, Indiana on the northside of Indianapolis. Because of its wonderful design and beautiful exterior and interiors, a few comments about IIU Health North Hospital are in order.

Situated on the main throughfare of the northside’s bustling business community at the south end of Carmel, IU Health North is a full-service 170-bed community-based hospital which also serves as the north campus of the renowned Riley Hospital for Children, one of the founding three hospitals of the IU Health hospital systems.  IIU Health North offers a full range of patient care services providing exceptional care and service for the whole family. From its exterior limestone to the warmth of the interior hallways and all private patient rooms, IU Health North is a testament to the merger of art, healthcare, and a healing environment. Reconstructive plastic surgery is most visible in IU Health North as a complement to the Breast Cancer center for breast reconstruction, the Bariatric Center for body contouring after weight loss, and pediatric plastic surgery.

The design of IU Heaklth North and my Ology Spa facilities work very well together. Ology spa is situated just inside one of the main entrances of the hospitaland is lined with an all-glass exterior, revealing the large display of skin care and gift items. Ology spa design incorporates natural elements, such as bamboo flooring, water fountains, and organic colors. The facility has ample space for spa treatment rooms, offering massage, hydrotherapy and medical skin care, as well as plastic surgery consultation and treatment rooms.. Having both concepts in one facility, spa and plastic surgery, allows medical and cosmetic procedures to be done in a single location, enables a comprehensive approach to guest treatments before and after procedures, and allows higher-grade, more therapeutic skin and body product offerings.
