Degenerative joint disease is a leading cause of disability in people over 50 years of age. It is can be a very debilitating form of arthritis in that it tends to affect the load-bearing joints, especially the hips and knees, that are crucial for normal movement.
A Pap Smear is a test that is usually performed yearly after a woman turns 21 or becomes sexually active. The test is a simple, quick collection of cells. While a Pap Smear is not a diagnostic test for cervical cancer, it can detect any abnormalities which can then lead to further testing.
We use the Ottogram system that provides an evaluation of the sensitivity of a person’s sense of hearing.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 600,000 people in the United States die from heart disease each year, making it the leading cause of death for both men and women. Noting this, medical professionals often suggest that their aging patients or at-risk patients take an electrocardiogram, or EKG, test to check for signs of heart disease.
EKG tests are non-invasive, painless, safe and fast, and they help our doctors check things like heart rhythm and blood flow as well as diagnose previous heart attacks or anything else that seems abnormal. In the best case scenario, the EKG test confirms good heart health. However, if we see something abnormal, we will likely send you for further testing to get an idea of how to best treat or manage the issue.
The standard EKG test consists of a doctor attaching 10 or more electrodes in the areas of your chest, arms, and legs – the key places where major arteries exist. You’ll then likely start by lying flat while a computer records your heart rhythm. Aside from this “resting” EKG, your doctor may also have you exercise to get an idea of how your heart works under activity. This typically consists of a doctor monitoring your heart as you jog on a treadmill.
In most cases, the EKG test lasts less than 20 minutes and quickly helps give the doctor a better understanding of your heart health.
Eating right and getting plenty of exercises is crucial to maintaining good heart health, but EKG tests are an ideal way to either verify heart health or address small issues before they become big ones. It’s why they’re often a part of a physical exam for aging men and women. For more information on EKG tests, contact our medical center today.
Spirometry tests how well lungs are functioning. It measures how much air enters the lungs when a person inhales, how much air the patient exhales, and how quickly the patient inhales.
Kingsway Medical Center uses spirometry tests to diagnose asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and other lung conditions that affect breathing. A clinician at a medical center might also use spirometry to monitor a patient’s lung condition or determine how well treatment is working for that patient. Surgeons often order spirometry tests prior to performing surgery to make sure a patient’s breathing is healthy enough to undergo the rigors of a surgical procedure.
Before a spirometry test, your doctor may instruct you to avoid the use of any breathing medications or certain other medications. To undergo spirometry, patients should wear comfortable clothing that allows them to take deep breaths. It is best to avoid large meals before the test.
Prior to spirometry, the doctor or nurse will provide instructions on how to perform the test. The patient will sit in a chair. The medical professional performing the test will apply a clip to the patient’s nose to keep the nostrils closed.
During the spirometry test, the patient will breathe into a tube attached to a machine, known as a spirometer. The patient will take a deep breath and then exhale as hard as he or she can into the tube. The medical professional may request the patient repeat the test two or more times to ensure consistent results. The entire process takes 15 minutes or less.
Spirometry is a safe test. Some people feel short of breath or dizzy for a few moments following spirometry. The test is not recommended for people who have recently had a heart attack or have another type of heart condition. Spirometry may rarely trigger breathing problems.
Signals from the inner ear continuously drive the eye muscles to coordinate eye movement with head movement. This coordination is necessary to have clear vision and balance. The communication between the ear and the eye is called the vestibular-ocular reflex (VOR). When the VOR is functioning properly, eye speed and timing are equal and opposite to those of the head.
Our brains change as we age, and we may often find ourselves forgetting the name of our neighbor or misplacing items such as our keys more often than usual. If you are concerned about your memory or that of a family member, Kingsway Medical Center can help. Dr. Adedeji and the entire team at Kingsway understand that the effective treatment of memory and dementia issues often relies on the early detection and diagnosis of the problem.
Ankle Brachial Indicies (ABI) is a non-invasive testing of the peripheral vascular arterial flow to determine peripheral vascular disease (PVD), using blood pressure cuffs and Doppler ultrasound (Echocardiogram).

Nail biopsy is a procedure not routinely resorted to; but when indicated, it is often the only clue left for diagnosis. At such times, it pays to be conversant with it. It is an investigation that not only provides etiologic, diagnostic, and prognostic information but also aids in understanding the pathogenesis of nail diseases. It can be of therapeutic value, especially with respect to nail tumors.
Contrary to popular belief, a nail biopsy seldom leads to scarring. It is most useful in isolated nail manifestations as it gives a definitive approach to management rather than a conjectural one. Among individual conditions, biopsy is especially useful in the diagnosis of onychomycosis, longitudinal melanonychia, isolated nail psoriasis or lichen planus, and suspected malignant melanoma. It has therapeutic benefit in nail bed tumors, especially the glomus tumor. Nail biopsy is done with an objective to arrive at a precise diagnosis of nail unit pathology with a simple and safe surgical procedure, simultaneously avoiding pain or permanent dystrophy. Towards this end, a proper attention to the biopsy technique and the site chosen for biopsy is imperative. If biopsy is properly done, scarring is entirely avoidable.
