Dr. Burgess Returns to the Philippines

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

Dr. Burgess just returned from a cleft lip and palate mission in the Philippines with Clawson Medical Missions. Free surgical care was delivered to 50 children and young adults with the assistance of the Gift of Life Organization and Rotary. One young, 23 year old woman just wanted her speech to be improved after palate repair so that she could get a job. Other children just wanted to be able to go to school, since some affected children are not allowed to go to school by their families. Either way, the parents and children were really happy to see us back again this year but I think our surgical team missed them the most.

CoolSculpting: Go with Confidence

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Rumor has it, the idea behind CoolSculpting was first discovered by a pediatrician in the 1960s. The pediatrician noticed that as kids sucked on popsicles, a dimple developed on the side of their cheek in which they had placed the popsicle. Concluding that the cold temporarily disabled the fat cells, the pediatrician noted that fat cells must be very sensitive to cold. Further proving his theory, as they finished their popsicle and their mouths returned to normal temperature, the children’s cheeks would again be dimple-free. Whether this is true—or a medical urban legend, CoolSculpting uses a similar premises.
