Dallas Spine Surgeon Dr. Sean Jones-Quaidoo
Neuromonitoring for Spine Surgery Patients……

Dallas Spine Surgeon Dr. Sean Jones-Quaidoo shares his knowledge and experience in this helpful and informative interview. As a specialist treating many types of spine disorders and helping his patients with back pain issues, Dr. Jones-Quaidoo stays on the cutting edge of the most recent up to date technologies.

Listen in as he discusses the benefits of Neuromonitoring to keep tabs on the nerves, sensory information, muscles and peripheral nerves to avoid and prevent injury as spine surgery is taking place. Whether a patient is having a disc decompressed or while the surgeon is working in the neck area doing a fusion procedure, the use of Neuromonitoring greatly protects and provides greater outcomes for Dr. Jones-Quaidoo’s patients.



Your spine is at the center of a delicately balanced system that controls all of your body’s movements. Bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves all work together to balance the weight of your body. Even minor damage to one component of your back’s structure can upset this fragile balance and make movement painful.

It is not surprising, then, that back pain is second only to headache as the most common cause of pain, or that 8 out of 10 people will have a problem with back pain at some time. The causes of back pain can be simple or complex; the vast majority can be treated nonsurgically, but in some serious cases, surgery is necessary.

For minimally invasive surgery or maximal surgery, the use of Neuromonitoring is just one of the cutting edge technologies that Dr. Jones-Quaidoo provides for his patients.

Dr. Sean M. Jones-Quaidoo of SpineVue in Dallas Texas is a board certified and fellowship trained orthopaedic spine surgeon that specializes in degenerative spinal disorders. To make an appointment with Dr. Jones-Quaidoo, Call (214) 452-7705.

More and more people seem to be suffering with allergies or various types of allergic reactions like hay fever, food allergies, skin reactions, etc., etc. Mold spores, pollen, grasses, weeds, pet dander, dust mites, shellfish, and the list goes on. It almost makes a person feel like the planet itself may be out to get them.

Listen in as Dr. Dice dispels a few myths and answers our questions regarding what’s new? How does the process work? How can you get help? And more.

Sometimes a person’s allergic reaction might be to something very specific and obvious and sometimes it takes a lot of effort to find the true source of the irritation. Starting off with a complete history and following up with a judicious testing process, Dr. Dice does what it takes to determine what his patient’s underlying source of discomfort really is.

Dr. Dice states, “If you do need an allergist, it’s always best to seek out someone who’s got the training in the field, that is a board certified allergists, and has done the necessary advance training and learning, and constant research and study to make sure they’re fully up to speed and literally on the cutting edge of everything that’s going on in the field as though that is their primary reason for existence.”

For patients who require back or spine surgery, robotic assisted guidance systems are one of the latest advances in technology that have transformed spine surgery from a freehand operation to a state-of-the-art procedure with highly accurate precision.

Dr. Elizabeth Bonefas Shares her Expertise on Breast Cancer Surgery

Houston Breast Cancer Surgeon, Dr. Elizabeth Bonefas discusses the process of diagnosis, preparation, treatment, surgery, and follow up for those suffering from breast cancer.

No one ever wants to hear the words from their doctor, “You have breast cancer”. For those that do, I strongly suggest you listen to this entire interview with Dr. Bonefas on how a person is tested, what treatment options are available, how she coordinates with your other doctors for radiation or chemotherapy, the surgical procedure itself and the reconstruction process.

Dr. Bonefas states, “For anybody who get the diagnosis of breast cancer, I would help them understand that early stage breast cancer is something that’s extremely treatable and there are so many treatments available that even with the later stage breast cancers, you see that because of all the treatment options available people are surviving and living longer.”

She also wants people to know…. “Breast cancer has become very much a multi-disciplinary area in medicine and patients need to understand that just because I ask you to see a medical oncologist doesn’t mean they will have chemotherapy because there are other modalities. They also need to understand there is so much information they should always bring someone with them and write their questions down before they come in so they have them to go over with their doctors.”

Dr. Elizabeth Bonefas began her private practice in 1989 after earning her medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School in San Antonio.  Dr. Bonefas is an Assistant Professor for Baylor College of Medicine and is on the teaching staff for St. Joseph Medical Center. Dr. Bonefas is a board certified general surgeon who specializes in diseases of the breast.  Currently she is the Chief of Staff for St. Joseph Medical Center and is the first woman to ever serve in this position.

Houston Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Bonnie Baldwin

When Choosing Cosmetic Surgery, Education is the Key to Success!

Houston Plastic Surgeon Dr. Bonnie Baldwin discusses the importance of the consultation with your plastic surgeon as well as determining the surgery you’re about to have done is right for you and works with her patients to develop a realistic expectation of the outcome. Dr. Baldwin’s goal is to help her patients achieve a very natural and proportional look.

Listen to the entire interview here……..

Successful plastic surgery outcomes begin with the desires of the patient. Communication between the doctor and the patient is essential to determine appearance goals and concerns that may be addressed through a surgical procedure.

Dr. Baldwin states, “Elective cosmetic plastic surgery is a wonderful tool for people who are feeling good about themselves but have some specific area of their body that is out of proportion or really bothering them.”

Dr. Baldwin also discusses the importance of having the right mindset for those who choose to have cosmetic surgery. In many cases when a person is having plastic surgery done to change something that has been bothering them for a very long time, the results Dr. Baldwin achieves can dramatically improve one’s self esteem and confidence.

Dr. Baldwin suggests, “Sometimes people will come in thinking that cosmetic surgery is like “getting a haircut”. They misunderstand the recovery but the reason we do so much elective cosmetic surgery these days is because it’s become safer, anesthesia is safer, our techniques are more controlled, blood loss is less, pain is managed better, but at the same time, It’s still a surgical procedure. I don’t want patients to misunderstand; we need to be very well prepared.

Dr. Baldwin’s surgical approach focuses on providing a natural look that fits each individual. When any person feels they are at their best they portray themselves as more energized, more enthusiastic, and with greater self-esteem.
