Arthritus can cause a high level of discomfort in our joints. It generally happens when we become senior citizens, but it occasionally will also affect younger adults as well. Fortunately there are treatments that have been successful at relieving the pain in many people who have been affected by this disease of the joints.

Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the bronchial tubes that causes swelling and constriction of the airways. This causes breathing difficulties. The constrictions caused by asthma can be completely alleviated with the proper treatment.
Diabetes is a serious disease that, if not treated properly, could cause blindness, heart disease or kidney disease. see more about Bakersfield diabetes treatment and diagnosis...
Emphysema is a disease of the lungs. When a person has emphysema the alveolar walls of the lungs are destroyed with the capillary blood vessels that run within them. Unfortunately this situation lessens the total area within the lung where blood and air can come together to provide oxygen to our bloodstream. There can also be inflammation of the small airways that makes it very difficult for air to flow to the alveoli.
At our Bakersfield clinic we treat patients with emphysema to make them more comfortable and to limit the damage that emphysema causes. It must be noted that emphysema is not curable and we cannot reverse the damage already done. However, we can preserve lung function. Our goal at Elias Medical in Bakersfield is to improve the quality of life for our patient and to limit the effects of emphysema on our lives. If you have breathing difficulties, especially if you have been a smoker, you should be assessed as soon as possible for emphysema.
Family doctors are trained in all areas of medicine. They can diagnose and treat the full range of problems people usually bring to their doctors.

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, occurs when there is high tension in the arteries. Arteries are the vessels that carry blood from the heart to all the tissues and organs of the body. Normal blood pressure is below 120/80; blood pressure between 120/80 and 139/89 is called "pre-hypertension", and a blood pressure of 140/90 or above is considered high.
Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the health care of infants, children, and adolescents. At Elias Medical our Bakersfield staff is very caring no matter what the age of our patient. Medical knowledge is not enough. We feel that we also need to relate to the younger people so our Bakersfield Pediatric service is the best it can be. We guarantee that you will be pleased with our medical advice and treatment. Please come in for all of your Bakersfield Pediatric needs.
