Head and Neck Surgical Oncology by Medical Specialist Richard Isaacs
 
Dr. Isaacs possesses broad experience and know-how in handling various medical conditions. He has Advanced Certification in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery, making him an excellent practitioner dedicated to attending to the needs of patients suffering from head and neck conditions.
 
Ordinarily, the head and the neck are two important body members which we often neglect or abuse. How often do we suffer stick necks from texting or watching TV while lying in bed. These may not be serious problems; but other critical issues may arise from other causes, such as improper diet, toxic substances (cigarette smoke) and exposure to radiation. And when these big problems arise, we begin to think more of our head which happens to be supported by the humble and seemingly inconsequential neck.
 
Obviously, it is only when we feel pain on these parts that we think of them as ever providing us vital functions without which we would not exist at all or, at least, lead normal lives.
 
The neck bones and the skull which are connected to each other provide the structure for the two organs to function and to interrelate. Aside from providing support, the neck contains vital parts which allow us to breathe, use language, to sing, to ingest food, to rotate the head and to allow passage for electrical energy and biochemical substances which complete the entire bodily system necessary for human life.
 
As well, the head contains the brain and all the basic senses we utilize to function as intelligent living beings. Except for the heart and lungs which provide essential functions for the whole body to function well, the brain can be said to be the prime motor which allows the whole body to accomplish all that it was designed to do fundamentally or achieve potentially.
 
Together, the head and neck form a formidable pair which often requires serious medical attention because of damages or diseases.  Some of the more or less serious conditions which beset this pair, thereby requiring surgery, are the following:
    
1.  Tumors or cancers
2.  Benign and malignant disease of the thyroid
3.  Benign masses of the head and neck
 
The following procedures are taken to address the above and other conditions:
 
1.  Anterior and Lateral Skull Base surgery
2.  Diagnosis of head and neck cancers through endoscopy and laryngeal videostroboscopy
3.  Treatment of all head and neck skin cancers, such as carcinoma and melanoma
4.  Use of laser resection of head and neck malignancies
5.  Medical and Surgical Treatment of Thyroid and Parathyroid masses/disorders
6.  Microvascular Free-Tissue Transfer Reconstruction
 
When it is about the head and neck, you can be confident that Dr. Rich can provide the help you need through his professional medical attention. He will work with you closely to resolve your medical problem, aiding you to look for opportunities to provide treatment or management of your condition in order to lessen the mental and emotional anguish you may be going through.

Ears, Nose and Throat Treatment for Cancer - Care of Dr. Richard Isaacs
 

 
Have you encountered this big word “otolaryngology”? Quite a mouthful indeed! It comprises of four root words put together to form a new medical term: otic (of the ear), olfactory (pertaining to the nose) and larynx (or the throat) and logy (the study or the care of). Hence, it simply refers to the medical study and care of diseases and problems that beset our ears, nose and throat.
 
Whereas, previously the eyes were part of the three in the former medical acronym EENT, ENT (shorter and simpler way) now refers only to the said vital three organs of the human anatomy, particularly because they are directly interrelated not only in their proximity to one another but also in their functions. The eyes comprise a highly-specialized function although not entirely unrelated to that of the three.
 
So, what is otolarynologic method used for tumors? Let us first describe briefly the connection of the three for a better appreciation of what Dr. Isaacs(https://www.facebook.com/Dr-Richard-Isaacs-548663725287413) can offer for patients suffering this kind of problem.
 
The nose, perhaps, the most prominent of the three, is connected to the throat as well as throat through passageways that allow the air we breathe to be conducted into our lungs. Although the ear was not designed as an air passage, it does allow air to enter through the ear canal with the help of valves that control the intake or outtake. Often, when we cough or sneeze, we can feel some air forced out of our ears and even experience slight deafening when we have colds because of some clogging of the passageways. At times, when we travel up the mountain, we can have the same effect when the pressure inside our ears is higher than that outside. Yawning can easily remove the discomfort by opening up the valves and equalizing the pressure in and out.
 
That is a simple description of the three organs as they relate with one another at their optimal level of functioning. But what if something happens to either one of these organs? Or especially, for example, if a tumor grows in any one of them? We know that cancer cells can occur in any part of the human body. For smokers, often the effect on the throat (not to mention the lungs) is patently tragic as it bears the brunt of the toxins and carcinogens carried by the cigarette smoke.
 
Dr. Rich Isaacs’ expertise will remove tumors or cancer cells from the throat, as well as the ears and nose, through his wide knowledge and experience in otolaryngologic procedures obtained from many years of practice in this field, among other fields he is involved in. His know-how regarding how these organs function and how they can malfunction forms a strong foundation for treating them whenever issues in structure, function and general muscular or cellular conditions arise.
 
Dr. Isaacs provides a complete range of diagnostic, medical, and surgical(https://plus.google.com/communities/111898403072094013868) services for ear, nose, and throat conditions, particularly cancer. Evaluation, diagnosis and/or direct treatment of these conditions which may include chronic ear infections, hearing loss, sinusitis, tonsillitis, airway problems, cysts, and tumors of the head and neck, comprise some of the problems he and his staff are capable of addressing with their professional and expert care.
 
Dr. Richard Isaacs(http://www.manta.com/c/mx5m8k3/dr-richard-isaacs) has practiced with Kaiser Permanente from 1995 to the present and has Advanced Certification in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery to his name. He specializes, in particular, in orbital, nasal, and maxillofacial surgery and also in thyroid and parathyroid surgery. His many years of experience in otolaryngologic procedure for tumors at the skull base has made him a valuable regional resource for the treatment of advanced tumors of the head and neck.

Dr. Richard Isaacs Specializes in Head and Neck Surgical Oncology
 
The head and the neck are two body parts we rarely give so much thought to; ironically it seems, for the mind finds its home right at the top of the first which, in turn, is supported by the second. Obviously, it is only when we feel pain on these parts that we think of them as ever providing us vital functions without which we would not exist at all or, at least, lead normal lives.
 
The neck bones and the skull which are connected to each other provide the structure for the two organs to function and to interrelate. Aside from providing support, the neck contains vital parts which allow us to breathe, use language, to sing, to ingest food, to rotate the head and to allow passage for electrical energy and biochemical substances which complete the entire bodily system necessary for human life.
 
As well, the head contains the brain and all the basic senses we utilize to function as intelligent living beings. Except for the heart and lungs which provide essential functions for the brain to function well, the brain can be said to be the prime motor which allows the whole body to accomplish all that it was designed to do fundamentally or achieve potentially. Intellectual genius and athletic prowess would not at all be possible without the brain, supported by all other faculties and organs, doing a big part of the work.
 
Together, the head and neck form a formidable pair which often requires serious medical attention because of damage or diseases.  Some of the more or less serious conditions which beset this pair which require surgery are the following:
    
1. Tumors or cancers
2. Benign and malignant disease of the thyroid
3. Benign masses of the head and neck

6. Medical and Surgical Treatment of Thyroid and Parathyroid masses/disorders
 
Dr. Isaacs possesses broad experience and know-how in handling these medical conditions. He has Advanced Certification in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery, making him one of the best practitioners available for patients suffering the said problems. When it is about the head and neck, leave it to Dr. Rich to think and worry about as he has a way of helping your needs with professional medical care. At the least, he will take much of the burden of thinking how to resolve your problem medically. That can certainly remove a lot of pressure and worry from your own mind to begin with.

Dr. Richard Isaacs - Provides Otolaryngoloic Treatment for Cancer

 

Dr. Richard Isaacs(https://www.scribd.com/user/295340238/Richard-Isaacs-MD) has been a valuable part of Kaiser Permanente since 1995 and possesses Advanced Certification in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery, with specialties in orbital, nasal, and maxillofacial surgery, as well as thyroid and parathyroid surgery. His works as a regional resource for the management of advanced tumors of the head and neck and provides the otolaryngologic procedure for tumors at the skull base.

In addition, he is trained in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery and has an interest in post-tumor facial reconstruction and facial reanimation surgery.

But what is this otolarynologic procedure used for head tumors? Let us briefly explain to get a better appreciation of what Dr. Isaacs(http://richardisaacsmd.blogspot.com/) offers for patients with this kind of problem.

Otolaryngology simply refers to medical attention given to ear, nose and throat conditions. Whereas in the recent past, EENT put all these three together, that is, including the eye, ENT (perhaps, a shorter and simpler way) now only refers to the said vital three organs of the human anatomy, especially because they are connected and related not only in terms of distance to one another but also in their functions.

The nose, probably the most conspicuous among the three, is connected to the ear, as well as to the throat through passageways that allow the air we breathe to be conducted into our body interiors. Although the ear was not specifically designed to serve as a passage for any fluid, whether air or liquid, it does allow air to enter through the ear canal with the help of valves that control the intake or outtake. Hence, every time we cough or sneeze, we can feel some air going out of our ears and even feel a bit slight hearing loss during colds due to some clogging of the passageways. Likewise, when we climb up a mountain, we can experience the same effect when the pressure inside our ears is higher relative to that of the pressure outside. This is easily solved through yawning, which alleviates the discomfort by opening up the ears valves and equalizing the external and internal pressures.

That is a simple description of the three organs as they relate with one another at their optimal level of functioning. But what if something happens to either one of these organs? Or especially, if a tumor grows in any one of them? We know that cancer cells can occur in any part of the human body. For smokers, often the effect of the habit on the throat (not to mention the lungs) is patently tragic as it bears the brunt of the toxins and carcinogens carried by the cigarette smoke.

This is where Dr. Rich Isaacs’(https://medium.com/dr-richard-isaacs) expertise comes in. Removing tumors or cancer cells from the throat, as well as the ears and nose, requires a wide knowledge and experience in otolaryngologic procedures which he has acquired as a top practitioner in the field, among other fields he practices. Knowing how these organs function is a vital part of treating them when they encounter issues in structure, function and general muscular or cellular conditions.

Dr. Isaacs provides a complete range of diagnostic, medical, and surgical services for ear, nose, and throat conditions, particularly cancer. Evaluation, diagnosis and/or direct treatment of these conditions which may include chronic ear infections, hearing loss, sinusitis, tonsillitis, airway problems, cysts, and tumors of the head and neck, comprise some of the problems he and his staff are capable of addressing with their professional and expert care.

A Man with a Lifetime Medical Mission: Dr. Richard Isaacs, MD


In general, medicine is recognized as a very broad area of study and involves so many various fields of health-care as well as different approaches and applications, whether we are talking of traditional, alternative and even emotional-healing practices. Most people, however, rely on the general field of medical practice accepted by countries and societies as the scientific and professional field of health-care practiced by graduates of Schools of Medicine and are referred to as Doctors of Medicine (MD’s).

Today, the willingness or passion to provide people with physical healing is not fully applied or recognized without leaving the comfort of one’s world and into the greater arena of the vast majority of people who need healing and proper medical care. The worldwide web has significantly eased the problem of how to make health care readily accessible to others. And, obviously in medicine or the medical profession (https://www.facebook.com/Dr-Richard-Isaacs-548663725287413), as it is often referred to by those tasked with providing health care to the ailing patient, the patient must not only seek the doctor; the doctor must also make himself or herself available and accessible as much as possible.

The physician or MD, in general, needs to be fully equipped and qualified to offer basic health care using methods accepted by most public health-providers in accordance with modern professional health-care methods. However, we all know that even old traditional healing approaches, which have been proven by modern research to be effective and are administered by more and more doctors along with modern medical practices, for instance, acupuncture, chelation and others. Which means that we have advanced in such a way that we have greatly enhanced the human power to serve the health needs of many people who require effective medical attention. Likewise, those who are given the function of administering such highly-specialized expertise must have a source of surplus amounts of diligence, persistence and altruism not easily available to majority of people.

A primary model of this innovative professional medical practitioner is Dr. Richard Isaacs, MD (http://www.ucomparehealthcare.com/drs/richard_isaacs/), who has availed of the Internet to widely post his qualifications and his specialization to more people needing his particular field of practice. This direct way of promoting one’s profession to the greater community online may seem a bit unusual and even suspicious to many. Yes, it may even seem to demean the respected position the medical doctor whom many view as being more altruistic or unselfish than other professions.

However, that may have been true in former times when doctors plied their trade as mainly unrecognized or unappreciated employees of medical institutions or small-time family doctors running day clinics in distant towns. At present, however, doctors organize and put up poly-clinics offering alternatives to hospitals as diagnostic and medical-consultancy centers in many urban areas. Yes, gone are the days when doctors hang up front-door signs and worked as free-lance-private doctors for a small regular clientele within a neighborhood or a residential subdivision.

The increase in the number of doctors and medical-health practitioners has also altered the way medical services are administered or practiced, especially with the advent of increased medical specialization and use of advanced medical technology. Hence, a physician in some cases is not required to physically visit a patient in order to serve his or her needs which may not include surgery or delicate attention by a physician and which a nurse or a training physician (http://www.angieslist.com/companylist/us/ca/sacramento/richard-isaacs-md-reviews-6832256.htm
) can readily handle. And even in more serious cases where the physician is not available as long as there are other skilled health-givers who can take the place of the doctor without endangering the patient unduly. It is, in fact, not uncommon now for a patient to be in a hospital for a day or two without having seen a specialist, who may be unavailable, while providing the needed proper medical attention through other available doctors. The way medicine is practiced nowadays has evolved with the times and the demands of modern world, whether we understand it or not.

As such, having a doctor such as Dr. Richard “Rich” Isaacs post his qualifications and experiences online provides a refreshing view of the medical profession not only in its application but likewise in its accessibility to people who require it. Thanks to people such as Dr. Isaacs for opening an innovative alternative to looking for medical help minus the trouble of walking or asking around for the proper medical attention needed so direly. And often, in matters of life and death, time is of the essence.

Rich is trained in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery and has wide experience in post-tumor facial reconstruction and facial reanimation surgery and has an Advanced Certification in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery, specializing in orbital, nasal, and maxillofacial surgery, as well as thyroid and parathyroid surgery.

Dr. Richard “Rich” Isaacs: At your service!

Dr. Isaacs’ credentials, as seen in his web homepage, are not just impressive but awesome in many respects. For one, he not only has a specialization in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery but also has wide grasp and experience in other medical fields, such as cancer (facial skin cancer, jaw tumor, laryngeal cancer, paranasal sinus cancer and thyroid cancer, to name a few) and has been involved in innovative medical care utilizing robotics and computer technology.

Such vast experience and expertise possessed by one physician should not come as a surprise from one who attended the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor as an undergraduate and finished with honors. Rich, for short, was born and raised in Detroit and took up his medical studies at Wayne State University School of Medicine in that city, graduating, as we would have expected, with honors.  

Rich joined Kaiser Permanente in 1995 and he has Advanced Certification in Head and Neck Oncologic Surgery. His specialties include orbital, nasal, and maxillofacial surgery, as well as thyroid and parathyroid surgery. Additionally, Rich is trained in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery and is also highly involved in post-tumor facial reanimation and facial reconstruction surgery. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery as well as of the American College of Surgeons. Rich has also published many articles in various publications.

Rich has a passion for teaching and has trained medical students, residents and fellows from the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine, Drexel University College of Medicine (Philadelphia), and Northstate University School of Medicine (Elk Grove) where he teaches as a Professor of Otolaryngology. Serving as a teacher-doctor could be considered one of the highest accomplishments any professional or any person can have, for that matter. Skills and knowledge can grow not just through study and research but through passing them on to more people who can practice them as well as improve them for more people to benefit from.

As a Physician-In-Chief, Rich has proven his himself to be a good leader as well as a trusted practitioner. In April of 2005, He was appointed to the Physician-In-Chief position for the South Sacramento and Elk Grove Medical Facilities. He supervises 450 physicians and more than 3,000 nurses and staff who care for the 210,000 Kaiser Permanente members in the South Sacramento and Elk Grove areas. Rich also serves as the Medical Director of operations, including all inpatient and outpatient departments. He also works as the Chief Medical Officer for the 290 bed Acute Care Hospital and ACS Level II Trauma Center. 

Does Rich still have time to do something else?  

We all know doctors are quite busy people but they do find time to enjoy life. Hence, as impressive as Rich’s credentials may appear, he does find time to be an active sportsman, being an Alpine Member at the National Ski Patrol. And while he is at that, he likewise provides comprehensive care to injured skiers at the Tahoe Donner Ski Resort. Now, that is impressive as well as admirable – having a great, exhilarating time and serving fellow sports-enthusiasts when they need medical care.

What can we say but present to you Dr. Richard “Rich” Isaacs – at your service! He must enjoy what he is doing.

Dr. Richard Isaacs, MD: The Willingness to Serve

In the modern world, the desire or the willingness to help others solve their problems is not complete without coming out of the confines of one’s comfortable world into the broader community of people struggling through life, in need or in pain.The Internet has helped to bring this eagerness to reach out to others to its fulfillment -- especially in the field of medicine or medical practice, as it should be more properly called by those who are charged with administering health care to the ailing patient.

Medical practice is obviously a wide subject and incorporates so many different aspects of health-care and variations of methods or approaches, from traditional, alternative and even emotional in nature. The majority of people, however, depend on the general field of medical practice recognized by most societies and governments as the scientific and professional field of health-care provided by products of Schools of Medicine and are referred to as Doctors of Medicine (MD’s).

The more common term “physician” has also become synonymous with MD. To be a physician, in general, is to be qualified to provide essential health care using methods recognized by most public institutions as in keeping with accepted modern medical practices. This does not mean, of course, that ancient practices which have proven to be effective are without value in the modern medical profession. It only means that we have progressed to the level of fine-tuning the human capability to provide health care and to alleviate the sufferings of millions of sick people. And the people tasked with providing such highly-specialized skills also possess higher amounts of persistence, diligence and self-sacrifice than most people.

Dr. Richard Isaacs, MD, is a prime example of the qualified modern physician who has made good use of the worldwide web to present his credentials and his services to those who require medical care or assistance. A lot of people might either be surprised or turned off by such a direct approach to promoting one’s profession to the greater virtual community out there. That is because it might come out as somewhat demeaning to the noble profession of the physician which many consider to be more altruistic or service-oriented than most other vocations.

But that was common in the older times when medical practitioners worked silently in the bigger institutions, hospitals or hole-in-the-wall clinics they worked in. Today, doctors form so-called poly-clinics to provide a para-hospital alternative facilities for providing diagnostic and consultancy services. Most doctors, in the past, made do with putting up a sign on their home front-door as simple private general practitioners with a handful of devoted patients in their immediate neighborhood or locality.

Richard Isaacs MD: The fight of his life

A Makahu father with a rare form of cancer is being denied a drug that may give him more time with his four young children.

James Grieve, 44, was diagnosed with Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumour (DSRCT) last July, when the family were living in Perth.

Grieve told his oncologist the family, who were originally from Britain, were only in Perth on a work visa and he and his wife Victoria wanted to take their children home to Taranaki.

But they were told it was a very aggressive sarcoma and he had to start chemo straight away, Grieve said.

"He made it clear I was going to die. I was going through chemo because I have four kids and something was better than nothing."

After six rounds of chemo, nothing had changed, he said, so they came home.

But before they left, Grieve's oncologist in Australia gave him three months worth of a trial drug, Pazopanib, which may inhibit the tumour's growth and give him more time with his four young children.

However, back home in New Zealand Pharmac won't fund the drug, which costs $10,000 for three months supply.

In a letter to MidCentral oncologist Dr Richard Isaacs, Pharmac said if Grieve was granted Pazopanib, people with other soft tissue sarcomas would also apply, because there was no clinical evidence to support the use of the drug specifically for DSCRT rather than other soft tissue sarcomas.

Richard Isaacs MD: Kaiser South gets Level II trauma certification

Kaiser Permanente’s South Sacramento Medical Center has been verified by the American College of Surgeons as a Level II trauma center.

The center got provisional verification by the group last year so it could begin operations, but the process requires reviewers to evaluate the program after it is up and running.

Reviewers conducted another on-site review in March to evaluate trauma center staff, equipment and other resources to make sure they meet national standards. Full verification will be in effect until 2013.

Since opening Aug. 1, the new South Sacramento trauma center has treated an average of 150 patients per month.

“We are extremely proud that the American College of Surgeons has verified that our program meets their stringent standards,” Dr. Richard Isaacs, physician-in-chief at Kaiser Permanente South 

Sacramento, said in a press release. “We have an excellent staff here and we are committed to caring for some of the area’s most critically injured patients.”

The South Sacramento hospital serves an area from Interstate 5 east to Rancho Cordova, and from Florin Road south to the San Joaquin County line.

The trauma center is a first for Kaiser Permanente nationwide.
