Does Insurance Cover Botox Injections for Migraine Headaches?
Unfortunately no insurance company covers Botox therapy for generic headaches. Many will cover Botox for chronic migraines, which have been unresponsive to standard preventative therapies. In 2011, the FDA approved Botox for treating chronic migraines which have been unresponsive to an adequate trial of preventative medications. Preventative medications do not include the use of any narcotic pain killers. Insurance companies have made it difficult for patients to obtain Botox payment authorization, by putting in place numerous qualification barriers – if they cover Botox at all. Insurance compan...

Platelet Rich Plasma for Hair Growth versus Hair Surgery
While PRP is effective in stimulating new hair growth and thickening existing hair, its effect lasts up to 12 months. In order to sustain fuller hair, PRP needs to be given about every 9 months. With a successful hair transplant surgery, the effects are significantly longer in duration. Properly done hair surgery transplants may last years. However, hair surgery is a complicated process that must be done with precision to have desirable outcomes. The final outcome may not be seen for a year. The effects of PRP on hair growth can usually be seen in 3 months with the duration of full effect for about 9 months. Think of ...

Podcast: Platelet Rich Plasma Regenerates Injured Joints and Relieves Pain
In this episode of the Sarasota Neurology Podcast, Dr. Kassicieh discusses Platelet Rich Plasma  and Regenerative Medicine.

Back Pain Doctor Sarasota Fl
Failed back syndrome, or lumbar post-laminectomy syndrome, is the term given to patients who have had back surgery for back pain, but continue to have pain after surgery. Even worse, their back pain can be worse after the surgery. The main problem is the fact that low back pain is not an indication for back surgery – any more than neck pain is an indication for neck surgery (failed neck surgery: cervical post-laminectomy syndrome). Surgery done for the sole purpose of relieving neck or back pain is doomed to failure. Many spine surgeons make the false assumption that if a patient has back pain and there is a spine MR...

Parkinson Disease – Current New Treatment Options
Parkinson disease was first described by James Parkinson in 1817 Over the years, various medication therapies have been FDA approved for Parkinson disease. In the 1960s, Sinemet (carbidooa-levodopa) was approved. Sinemet was and still is the gold standard therapy for Parkinson disease. While it is the gold standard, it should not be the first drug used to treat Parkinson disease. It should be the third or fourth drug used. Early use of Sinemet can result in unwanted, irreversible side effects. Dopamine agonist were FDA approved in the 1990s for first line Parkinson disease therapy.

How I Avoided Knee Surgery
I remember it like it was yesterday. While playing racquetball in December 2011, I felt a sudden click in my right knee. I just knew that I had torn my right knee medial meniscus. The knee MRI  proved it. The pain was excruciating, and it was compounded by the thought that this happened 9 weeks before my annual Rocky Mountain ski trip. The misery did not last long though. I’ve been through this scenario before. I did the exact same thing to my left knee in 2010. (I have the MRI for that one, too!) So, I turned to the revolutionary treatment that got me back up on my feet and on the slopes last time this happened...
