Dr. Cara Riek, a nurse practitioner and lactation consultant, has just founded the Arizona Tongue Tie Center in Cave Creek, AZ. This new revolutionary organization is a collaboration between Arizona Breastfeeding Medicine and Wellness and Healthy Images, Dr. Stevanie Bahnerth. The Arizona Tongue Tie Center is designed to take a multidisciplinary approach to treating tongue-ties across a lifespan.
The Arizona Tongue Tie Center exclusively uses LightScalpel CO2 lasers to perform tongue- and lip-tie releases (frenectomy). A frenectomy is performed on adults to help treat a variety of health concerns and also on infants to help with breastfeeding issues, such as improper latching. A LightScalpel laser frenectomy is a quick and gentle procedure that, in most cases, is bloodless and requires no sutures.
For medical professionals who are interested in learning more about tongue-ties, Drs. Riek and Bahnerth will be presenting "Functional Frenectomies Across a Lifespan: A multidisciplinary approach to why, when, and how" held June 15-16, 2019 in Scottsdale, AZ.
