Continuing the Legacy of Cardiovascular Care at Cleveland Clinic

The legacy of pioneering cardiovascular research at Cleveland Clinic is vast and long-standing. Many established researchers are continuing this legacy of cardiovascular research in their own fields at the Clinic. While it is important to recognize the contributions of all of them, due to space limitations this story focuses on only three of them.


Bahman Guyuron, MD, FACS: Migraine Surgery, 15 Years of Research

In 1999, the American Migraine Study II indicated that nearly 28 million people in the United States suffered from migraine headaches (MH). Subsequent studies have indicated a steady increase in this number — to more than 37 million today, according to the National Headache Foundation (NHF).


Syed F. Zaidi, MD: Redefining Radiology’s Role in Health Care

Syed Zaidi, MD, was only three years out of fellowship training in 2010 when he was elected President of Radiology Associates of Canton (RAC). Founded in 1971, the 24-physician radiology group had been highly successful in providing comprehensive imaging and interventional radiology services to Stark and Summit County hospitals for almost four decades.


Cardiac Care for Kids at Cleveland Clinic Children’s

When Cleveland Clinic Children’s opened its Pediatric Heart Center in 1995, the intention was to build a team of cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons to rival all others — maybe even those in the Clinic’s adult Heart & Vascular Institute.


Inpatient Medical Services: The New Face of Hospitalist Medicine

For primary care physicians, the challenge has always been the same: how to ensure timely, high quality care for their hospitalized patients, while doing the same for their in-office patients.


Subspecialized ENT Care at UH Nose, Sinus & Allergy Center

Acute and chronic sinus infection, nasal polyps, deviated septum, facial pain and pressure, obstructive sleep apnea, sinonasal tumors — these are just a few of the conditions diagnosed and treated at The Nose, Sinus & Allergy Center at University Hospitals (UH).


What’s New in GI at Akron Children’s: New Physicians, New Technology, New Services

An estimated 10 to 15 percent of children between the ages of 3 and 16 experience chronic abdominal pain, defined as more than three stomach aches within three months. They can be, at the very least, energy-sapping for the children affected and concerning for their parents.


UH Digestive Health Institute’s Community Gastroenterology: Qualified, Certified, Experienced

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men and women, claiming more than 50,000 lives each year. Unlike many other cancer killers, it can be detected early and, often, prevented with screenings. But, according to gastroenterologists affiliated with University Hospitals (UH) Digestive Health Institute’s Community Gastroenterology & Quality Center, fewer than half of the people who should be screened for colorectal cancer actually are. Whether that disparity is the result of fear, lack of access, or a lack of awareness, these physicians are devoted to addressing it.


VNA of Ohio: Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services at Home

What began more than 100 years ago as a group of 13 Cleveland women dedicated to home health care now includes more than 700 professionals providing comprehensive home healthcare, hospice and rehabilitation services throughout northeast and central Ohio.


Tim Stover, MD, MBA, President & CEO, Akron General: ‘Wellness Warrior’

Even before the Foundation for Healthy Communities of the Ohio Hospital Association recognized Thomas L. “Tim” Stover, MD, MBA, as the 2013 Wellness Warrior, those familiar with him had already branded him as such.
