Surgical Site Infections
Surgical Site Infections (SSI) are infections that appear post surgeries and can range from superficial infections on the skin to affecting internal organs, tissues and/or implanted materials. These infections can be treated with antibiotics or surgery, depending on the severity.
Pneumonia is an infection that develops in your lungs and can range from mild to severe. You can develop pneumonia through community-spread or other respiratory infections like Influenza or COVID-19. Your doctor may prescribe medication like antibiotics or antivirals depending on the severity and type.
HIV is a virus that affects your body’s immune system, and if left untreated, can develop into AIDS. While there is no currently known cure for HIV, treatment can help you manage HIV symptoms within six months. Starting treatment as soon as possible is suggested but can help regardless of when you start. Please talk to your medical provider about getting tested if you think you have been exposed to HIV or are experiencing symptoms.
Tick-Borne Diseases come from contact with infected ticks. It’s important to check your body for bites and ticks after you go outside. Not all tick bites lead to disease, but if you experience symptoms like pain or swelling after discovering a tick, it’s important to seek medical advice from your provider. Treatment will depend on what type of tick you encountered.
Preventative measures like vaccinations are important to lowering the risk of certain infections and diseases spreading or becoming worse. It’s important to keep up-to-date and receive annual vaccinations against diseases like the flu.
Cellulitis ( Skin & Soft Tissue Infection)
Cellulitis is a bacterial skin infection that can cause serious health issues if left untreated for too long and presents itself as redness, swelling, and pain at the affected site. Cellulitis is usually treated with antibiotics given orally (by mouth) or through an IV directly into the veins. Seek medical attention immediately if you develop fever/chills or if the redness spreads quickly.
Recurrent Urinary Tract Infection
Recurrent UTIs are either recurring infections of the urinary tract that do not go away despite treatment. These infections are typically mild and easy to treat but can become serious if spread into your kidneys. Common recurrent UTI treatments can include longer use of antibiotics and home urine tests your doctor can use to track and detect infections.
Diabetic Foot Infections
Diabetic Foot Infections can be severe infections that affect diabetic patients and require immediate medication or surgical intervention to prevent further damages. Diabetic patients often experience loss of feeling in their feet due to nerve damage, so it’s important to monitor your feet to prevent more damage.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases
These are often, but not always, transmitted via unprotected sexual intercourse. These diseases can include HIV and Hepatitis. Seek consistent medical screening for STD treatment.
M.R.S.A (Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus)
M.R.S.A is a bacterial infection resistant to many antibacterial treatments, normally spread and caught by contact with infected wounds or infected shared personal items. Certain prescribed medications can be used to treat M.R.S.A.
Osteomyelitis (Bone Infection)
Osteomyelitis is a bone infection that causes swelling/inflammation to the affected bone and is often due to an infection or injury that has spread too far into your body. Symptoms can also include fever, difficulty moving the impacted area, and redness, and treatment normally involves medications or surgery.
Travel medicine focuses on treating diseases and medical conditions that are acquired during travels, particularly traveling through other countries where certain diseases and injuries are more common than where you are from. Preventative medications are immunizations before traveling may be necessary for your own safety, so speak to your medical provider before leaving.
Orthopedic Infections affect your joints and/or bones, often as a result of complications post-surgery. Joint replacement surgery is a common cause. These infections are serious and can require complex corrective surgeries if left untreated, but with early medicated treatment can be minimized.
Fever of Unknown Origin
Fever of Unknown Origin (FUO) are prolonged fevers of approximately three weeks in length or occur frequently and without explanation. In many cases, FUO clears up on its own, but anti-inflammatory and fever-reducing medications can help reduce the fever itself. In cases of infection or immuno-deficiencies, medications can be prescribed as treatment.
