Evidence Based Medicine

Outcomes Matter

We offer the latest treatments for spinal and other musculoskeletal conditions. If a patient is deemed a candidate for one of our procedures, we offer the opportunity to participate in our outcomes reporting program. A short confidential survey is completed before the procedure and at several time increments afterward. We believe in evidence-based medicine and outcome studies are vital in advancing the field of regenerative medicine.

Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a concentrated sample of a patient’s own blood containing serum and a high concentration of platelets. A blood sample is spun or centrifuged and separated to concentrate  plateletsas well as growth factors and cytokines that recruit reparative cells and enhance the healing process.

Bone Marrow Concentrate

Bone Marrow is the home of a variety of cells including supportive and reparative cells. It is extracted usually from a patient’s iliac crest and concentrated via centrifugation. Bone Marrow is believed to enhance tissue repair via the production of growth factors and cytokines as well as the recruitment of other cells to stimulate tissue repair.

Adipose Treatments

Adipose tissue or fat contains a vast number of supportive and reparative cells that help promote a healing environment throughout the body. A small amount of fat can be removed from a patient, treated, and reinjected into areas of tissue pathology.

Joint injections

We treat disorders of the joints via several technologies. When indicated, we use advanced imaging techniques to guide our injections such as fluoroscopy (x-ray) and ultrasound.

Epidural injections

An epidural injection is a minimally invasive procedure in which we deliver an injection to the epidural space of the spine to treat conditions such as neck, arm, leg, or back pain caused by inflamed spinal nerves due to spinal stenosis or disc herniation. Epidural injections may be performed via three different routes: interlaminar, transforaminal, or caudal.

Intradiscal injections

An intradiscal injection is a minimally invasive procedure performed under x-ray guidance in which an injection is performed into an intervertebral disc for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.

Intraosseous injections

Intraosseous procedures are minimally invasive procedures in which we place a needle into a bone to extract marrow or deliver a therapeutic injection.

Facet Injections

Facet joint injections are minimally invasive procedures where the facet or zygapophyseal joints of the spine are injected under x-ray guidance for pain relief.

Sacroiliac injections

A sacroiliac injection is a minimally invasive procedure in which a needle is placed into the sacroiliac joint under x-ray or ultrasound guidance to perform a therapeutic injection for pain.

Radiofrequency treatments

Radiofrequecny Ablations are minimally invasive treatments in which a needle probe is used to deliver radio waves to heat up a nerve for the purpose of pain relief. This is often used for pain in the neck, back, sacroiliac joint, knees, and hips.

Coolief TM

Coolief TM is a brand or radiofrequency treatment system which creates a larger lesion than standard radiofrequency equipment. This is often used for pain in the back, sacroiliac joint, hips, knees, and shoulders including pain that may persist after a joint replacement.

Spinal Cord Stimulation

A spinal cord stimulator is a device implanted with wires placed near the spinal cord. Electrical signals are sent to the spinal cord to treat pain in the spine or legs.

Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

A peripheral nerve stimulator is a device implanted near a peripheral nerve in a minimally invasive fashion that uses electrical impulses to treat chronic pain in a peripheral nerve in the ribs, arms, or legs.

Percutaneous Tenotomy and Percutaneous Fasciiotomy

Percutaneous Tenotomy and Fasciiotomy are minimally invasive techniques used to treat chronic tendon pain by removing diseased tissue. The site of tendon pathology is identified under ultrasound guidance and a small instrument is used to treat the area. This is popular in cases of lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow), achilles tendinitis, patellar tendinitis, plantar fasciitis,and gluteal tendinitis, which is often referred to as trochanteric bursitis.

The Intracept® procedure

The intracept® procedure is a new procedure for chronic low back pain. In patients with chronic low back pain, the discs are often described as the source of pain, however, in many patients it has been discovered that the vertebral end plates are a major source of pain. The Intracept® procedure targets the basivertebral nerve for the relief of chronic vertebrogenic low back pain in select patients.
