Dr. Zarkadas did his training at North Shore-LIJ Health System and received his MD in 2006. He started his medical practice in Astoria, Queens and focused on medical weight loss and wellness. He designed his own weight loss program, Trim Med, after he lost over 45 pounds using it.
In addition to the weight loss centers, Dr. Zarkadas currently operates three multi-specialty centers in Manhattan that focus on treating common co-morbidities like high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. While practicing for close to 10 years, he has observed that many diseases and medical conditions, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, gout, migraines and athletic injuries, have a common denominator: inflammation.
Playing a lot of sports, Dr. Zarkadas noticed that the best post-workout regimen was to ice down. Watching professional athletes entering ice baths or wrapping joints with ice packs was the norm. On the West Coast, professional athletes and many celebrities have used cryotherapy on a daily basis and it has been used extensively in Europe for years to battle inflammation.
After much research, Dr. Zarkadas has developed a protocol using cryotherapy. KryoMed LI is a medically supervised cryotherapy center, combining safe and effective cryotherapy for everyone.
