DR NIRAV VIDYARTHI The Dentists Cairns Dental Group The focus is our Patients! Photos by Catherine Coombs He’s a man of principal, a humble man and the only Australian to have been awarded a fellowship of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and a highly respected expert in the field of implants. Dr Nirav Vidyarthi is the owner of The Dentists Cairns Dental Group but he will state quite clearly to all that he is part of an amazing team of dentists and staff. “It’s about the team not just me,” he said. Dr Nirav has over 30 years of dental experience. His expertise and interests include implant placement and restorations. Dental implants, which were first introduced to the market in 1986, are becoming a popular solution for people who have missing teeth. “Sometimes teeth don’t last a lifetime and a dental implant is a possible solution,” Dr Nirav said. “Dental implants provide a number of benefits for those seeking alternative solutions to problems created by the loss of a tooth such as renewed ability to chew, improved speech and reduction of possible gum problems and infections. They also lead to increased confidence and selfesteem.” The Dentist Cairns Dental Group and their team provide comprehensive care and attention to detail to their patient’s needs. The services are varied and include implants as stated above but we also offer comprehensive general dentistry. Dr Nirav and his team place a strong emphasis on providing helpful and friendly expert treatment and advice to their patients while, at the same time, keeping their services affordable and accessible. “Our practice strives to provide the highest quality dental care and we pride ourselves on delivering helpful and friendly advice while constantly developing our services, ensuring all our patients have access to the latest and the most effective dentistry,” Dr Nirav said. “All our staff are also strongly committed to ongoing development and training to improve the standard of services and patient care. “We are a motivated practice who prides themselves on their teamwork with staff who have contributed for the past 12 years. This is what makes this practice ‘a practice of excellence’. Dr Nirav is an example of what a good dentist is and the staff feel that The Dentists Cairns Dental Group is an extraordinary practice to work in. 318 MULGRAVE RD PH 4242 1133 WWW.CAIRNSDENTALGROUP.COM.AU CityLife 14 Magazine

Spotlight on men’s health Northern Urology DR PHILIP SMITH Words by Janie Barton | Photo by Catherine Coombs The team of specialists at Northern Urology are on a mission to help improve men’s health in Far North Queensland. Specialising in the areas of incontinence, erectile dysfunction, prostate issues and pelvic cancer in both men and women, the team utilises the latest research and best practice treatment methods to help patients achieve the best outcomes for their ongoing health and wellbeing. A new Healthy Man Check by urology nurse practitioner Marco Hake is now being offered at Northern Urology, and patients do not need to be referred by their doctor for this check. “Marco will complete an all-over systems review health check to make sure everything is in order and refer on to a specialist if necessary,” Dr Smith said. “As a Urologist I deal a lot with prostate cancer and one of the things we need to do is encourage men to have an evaluation for early diagnosis.” Dr Smith suggests men have their first check when they are 40 to identify any problems early. Another initiative put in place at Northern Urology is to help men deal with erectile dysfunction. “It’s a stigmatised condition, but men are slowly becoming more comfortable talking about it,” Dr Smith said. “There’s a specific disease called Peyronies disease, which is when men develop scarring in the penis and it turns to a right angle during an erection. It’s a common condition that we see a lot, and there are treatments available without requiring surgery.” To aid in the treatment, Northern Urology has recently become a licensed user of a treatment called Xiaflex, which treats the disease without surgery. “It’s a stigmatised condition, but men are slowly becoming more comfortable talking about it” In addition to the new Da Vinci surgical robot, Northern Urology is also bringing two new treatments to Far North Queensland. Urolift and Rezume are day surgery procedures that aid in the treatment of urinary problems created by enlarged prostates. Almost half of men aged 50 suffer urinary problems caused by enlarged prostates. These treatments are minimally invasive, preserve all aspects of sexual function and have little to no side effects. “I think the physical ailment that men might have in terms of sexuality and penile issues can affect their mental health,” Marco said. “A good open discussion about these things and the treatments available can certainly relieve a lot of their anxiety.” NORTHERN UROLOGY GROUND FLOOR, WALLAMURRA TOWERS 189-191 ABBOTT ST, CAIRNS CITY PH: 4242 5000 WWW.NORTHERNUROLOGY.COM.AU CityLife 15 Magazine
