Try EMSELLA at Pravan Clinic

Posted by Pravan Clinic on Jun 1, 2023 2:56:15 PM

A multipurpose treatment

At Pravan, we’re focused on bringing constant innovation to our patients. And that's why we brought EMSELLA, an innovative machine that provides non-invasive electromagnetic stimulation of pelvic floor musculature using High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) to rehabilitate weak pelvic muscles and restore neuromuscular control for treating females’ and males’ urinary incontinence. The device allows you to perform over 11,000 supramaximal contractions in 28-minute sessions.

What is the pelvic floor, and what's its function?

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that support the pelvic organs, including the bladder, uterus or prostate, and rectum. Not that surprisingly, these muscles play a crucial role in sexual health as they contribute to sexual arousal, support sexual function, and provide pleasure during sexual activity. So when these muscles are not strong, your sexual health can be impacted negatively.

The Surge of Direct Primary Care and Concierge Medicine

Posted by Fiarah J. Carrau on Sep 9, 2022 12:23:31 PM

 

There are over 10,000 clinics in the US today operating under a new model called DIRECT PRIMARY CARE (DPC). It's called DIRECT because patients usually pay a monthly or yearly fee for better service and easy access to Primary Care Physicians (PCP). DPC aims to cut the red tape health insurance imposes on the industry. The model is gaining traction, making DPC more popular because of its quid-pro-quo idea of providing efficient solutions for physicians and patients.

 

Personalized care

Doctors operating with this model care for a fraction of the patients a regular PCP manages through the health insurance model, allowing them more time to invest in the quality of care and service experience. Meanwhile, patients get faster access to medical services, more time with their physicians, and personalized care.

The Importance of Early Detection

Posted by David Melchor on Jun 6, 2022 10:46:32 AM

One of the things that makes me feel proud and grateful about Pravan is the number of people we have helped through our preventative primary care approach. When we founded Pravan, we wanted it to focus on prevention since most physicians and clinics practice reactive medicine nowadays. By reactive, I mean that people only go to the doctor when they feel something is wrong, and unfortunately, it could be too late.

First Concierge Medical Clinic in Puerto Rico

Posted by David Melchor on Mar 15, 2022 12:16:27 PM

It’s 11pm and you’re losing sleep over what-ifs. You feel fine, but there is that one thing that runs in your family. Or maybe you don’t feel fine. Was it the sushi? Or that bug that took down half the office last week? You start feeling worse and the thought of going to an ER crosses your mind. What should I do? If I go to the hospital, it is going to be a nightmare with several hours of waiting time.  That doesn't sound like a pleasant experience...

Concierge Medicine may be the answer for Act 60 residents in Puerto Rico.

Posted by David Melchor on Mar 15, 2022 12:08:12 PM

Over the last few years we have seen a growing trend of people moving to Puerto Rico from the mainland looking for warmer weather and lower taxes. A few years ago the Puerto Rico government implemented several tax incentive decrees collectively known as Act 60, to incentive investors, business leaders and successful entrepreneurs to move to the island with their families and generate economic activity. After being in effect for a few years, there are thousands of individuals who are now Puerto Rico residents benefiting from the tax decrees.

It’s no secret that there’s been an influx of people moving to Puerto Rico from the mainland looking for warmer weather and lower taxes.

Posted by Elizabeth Sands, MS, CNS on Nov 20, 2020 4:44:04 PM

As the holidays approach and infection rates of COVID-19 are on the rise, we want to share some information to help you celebrate as safely as possible.

Platelet Rich Plasma: What It Is and When to Use It

Posted by Miguel Agrait, MD on Aug 14, 2020 9:43:43 AM

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated collection of plasma obtained from a patient’s own blood. A sample of blood is taken from the patient, then via centrifuge, concentrated down to a collection of platelets, proteins, enzymes, and growth factors that are key in the body’s own regenerative process. This distilled collection can then be injected into an area of injury in order to accelerate healing. It has been used extensively in the world of professional sports, but is also used around the world for patients and athletes of all skill levels.

Posted by David Melchor on Jul 17, 2020 1:27:17 PM

Before the mass migration to urban cities, there was a time when the doctor was much more integrated in the community. They were a part of the extended family, knew the family background, and developed a relationship with the family members based on trust.
