Dr. Kilmer founded the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California, one of the world’s largest cosmetic and laser dermatology facilities. “With over 35 lasers and devices on-site, we can customize our treatments to each individual patient,” she explains. “Cosmetic dermatology requires an artistic eye. Whether we are tightening skin, filling lips or treating volume loss, natural appearing results are extremely technique dependent; an eye for symmetry and beauty is a must!” Noting that unnatural, frozen features often result from too much of a good thing, she promotes a “less is more” philosophy, and patients attest to looking like themselves, only younger. When not lecturing around the globe, she is happily treating her patients, cooking at home with her family, riding bikes to neighborhood restaurants or sipping wine in front of a puzzle.

Whether you’re a dedicated athlete, weekend warrior or a couch potato, joint pain does not discriminate. If you have pain, trust your care to Brandon Beamer, MD, one of the few orthopedic surgeons in Northern California specializing in hip arthroscopy. A minimally invasive procedure, arthroscopy has gained cachet in recent years, but very few surgeons perform the technique for the hip. Beneficial for active adults, arthroscopy addresses issues that, if left untreated, could mean joint replacement surgery later in life. The procedure involves a few tiny incisions that allow microscopic camera views and precise surgery, meaning reduced recovery time and discomfort. Dr. Beamer received top-flight training from Cornell’s Medical School, Harvard’s Orthopedic Residency, and Sports Medicine Fellowship training from Stanford, where he served as assistant team physician for Stanford Athletics and the SF 49ers. Call Marshall Orthopedics for elite orthopedic care.
