Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
Campbell County Medical Group (CCMG) Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
Clinic treats conditions of the thyroid (including thyroid cancer), parathyroid,
and patients with lipid (cholesterol) disease and osteoporosis in Gillette, Wyoming.
Dr. Thomas Repas is an endocrinologist, a specialist in the complex chemical communication
systems within the human body—essentially, how the body uses energy
to fuel its metabolism. A physician referral is required for services
at this Clinic.
Diabetes Education Program
CCMG's Diabetes Education program gives you the knowledge and skills
needed to successfully self-manage the disease and prevent complications.
Diabetes education makes you more aware of your diabetes, what it takes
to treat it, and give you the power to better control it.
Now offering LDL apheresis
LDL apheresis is a medical procedure that removes LDL cholesterol (the
"bad" cholesterol) from the blood of patients who have a genetic
condition called Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) that can't be
controlled with diet, exercise or medication. A machine with special filters
are used to remove the LDL cholesterol from the patient's blood and
then it is returned to them, using needles that are placed in each arm.
Sometimes the patient may have a shunt surgically placed in their arm
for this treatment. LDL apheresis is a life-long therapy that is required
every two weeks, and a typical procedure lasts about two hours.
The arrival of Dr. Thomas Repas, a specialist in treating high cholesterol,
enabled Campbell County Health (CCH) to treat patients with this specialized
therapy. Apheresis treatment is performed in the
CCH Dialysis unit because dialysis treatment is similar to apheresis, and staff have received
training on the supplies and equipment.
