SIU Medicine has opened a new cosmetic clinic at 2201 W. White Oaks Dr. in Springfield. The building is also the location of Pure Synergy, which is made up of four separate businesses: Ahh Yoga, Body Symmetry, Physiotherapy Professionals and PureSynergy Massage.
The SIU clinic will offer cash-based services, including wrinkle fillers, BOTOX® injections, spider vein treatment and laser and cosmetic surgery consultations. Led by Nicole Sommer, MD, FACS, associate professor of surgery at SIU Medicine, the west side SIU Cosmetic Clinic will see patients on Tuesday and Friday afternoons, 1-3:30 p.m.
“The SIU Cosmetic Clinic aims to help patients maximize their health, wellness and peace of mind,” said Sommer, who has more than 20 years of experience and is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. She specializes in breast surgery, facial rejuvenation, body contouring and nonsurgical cosmetic treatment for the face and body. Sommer will continue to see patients at the SIU Institute for Plastic Surgery, 747 N. Rutledge St., Springfield.
SIU has also recently completed a renovation of their building at 720 Bond Street in Springfield to house the Division of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery. Adults and children needing ear, nose and throat care will benefit from a new, state-of-the-art facility in a renovated 22,000 square-foot clinic.
This new facility, which provides ear, nose and throat (ENT) care, features new audiology booths, advanced diagnostic equipment and a computerized arrival system.
The site also includes the region’s largest hearing and balance program, with nine graduate-trained clinical audiologists offering comprehensive diagnoses and treatment. The clinic consolidates locations and integrates academic and clinical faculty and coordinates audiology services.
“This new facility allows us to deliver state-of-the-art ear, nose and throat care all under one roof. The entire facility is built around optimizing the patient experience,” said Carol Bauer, MD, Chief of Otolaryngology. Included in the new facility is the academic and teaching space for the SIU otolaryngology program, with more than 20 resident and faculty physicians.
