WICHITA — Kansas is a leading state for stroke sufferers, and physician As'ad Ehtisham would like to do something about that.
He's opening ENVI & Aesthetics, which stands for Ehtisham Neuro Vascular Institute & Aesthetics, in 1,500 square feet at the Abay Neuroscience Center at 3223 N. Webb Road.
"What we are offering is something very, very unique," Ehtisham says.
He's board certified in neurology, vascular neurology and advanced neuro critical care. His practice will offer a variety of treatments but will have a neuro vascular focus for the treatment of strokes, blocked arteries, vascular malformations, migraines and traumatic brain and spine injuries.
Ehtisham also is going to offer Botox and facial remodeling, particularly for people who have Bell's palsy or who have suffered a stroke that results in facial issues.
"We can actually minimize those by different modalities," he says. "I will be the only one injecting."
Ehtisham was the medical director of the stroke and neuro critical care program at Via Christi Health from 2005 to 2009.
"I built the stroke program."
Most recently he's been an associate professor of neurology and neuro surgery at the University of Mississippi in Jackson, Miss.
Ehtisham still has family here and decided to return to Wichita for the opportunity to treat Kansans suffering from strokes.
"There is not a dedicated stroke neurologist taking care of those things," he says.
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
