Interventional Treatments:

Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection

This is an injection that relieves pain in the neck, shoulders, and arms caused by a pinched nerve (or nerves) in the neck. Conditions such as herniated discs, arthritis and spinal stenosis can compress nerves, causing inflammation, irritation and pain. The medication injected helps decrease the inflammation of nerves.

Cervical Facet Joint Injections

The Cervical facet joints, found on both sides of the neck, can become irritated or inflamed. A facet joint injection helps diagnose the source of a patient’s pain as well as relieve pain and inflammation.

Cervical Facet Radiofrequency Ablation

This is a minimally-invasive procedure that reduces or eliminates the pain of injured facet joints by disrupting the medial branch nerves that carry the pain signals. This procedure is performed with local anesthetic.

Cervical Sympathetic Block

This is a procedure that is used to relieve severe arm and hand pain caused by complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) or RSD, which may develop after an injury to a joint or limb. By blocking the sympathetic nerves, the pain of CRPS is substantially decreased.

Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

This injection procedure is performed to relieve low back pain and/or radiating leg pain (Sciatica). Anti-inflammatory medications are used to reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by disc and nerve irritation.

Lumbar Facet Joint Injections

The Lumbar facet joints are found on both sides of the back of the spine. They can become irritated or inflamed. A facet joint injections helps diagnose the source of a patient’s pain as well as relieve pain and inflammation.

Lumbar Radiofrequency Ablation

This is a minimally-invasive procedure that reduces or eliminates the pain of injured facet joints by disrupting the medial branch nerves that carry the pain signals. This procedure is performed with local anesthetic.

Lumbar Sympathetic Block

This procedure is performed to relieve leg and foot pain caused by complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) or RSD, which may develop after an injury to a joint or limb. By blocking the sympathetic nerves, the pain of CRPS is substantially decreased.

Sacroiliac Joint Injection

This injection is performed to relieve pain caused by arthritis or inflammation in the sacroiliac joint where the spine and hip bone meet. The anti-inflammatory medication reduces swelling and inflammation in the joint.

Trigger point injections

Trigger point injections are used to treat muscle pain and spams – knots in the muscles that contract but are unable to relax. These spasms can be caused by both physical injury, and mental stress/anxiety. In many cases, both the muscles and the surrounding nerves may be affected, causing long term chronic pain.

Fluoroscopic or Ultrasound Guided Hip Injection

This non-operative, outpatient procedure provides relief for patients with arthritis or inflammation of the hip joint. These techniques allows the physician to inject anti-inflammatory medications with maximum accuracy.

Fluoroscopic or Ultrasound Guided Shoulder Injection

This non-operative, outpatient procedure provides relief for patients with arthritis or inflammation of the shoulder joint. These techniques allows the physician to inject anti-inflammatory medications with maximum accuracy.

Ultrasound-Guided Injection for Knee Pain

This non-operative, outpatient procedure provides relief for patients with arthritis or inflammation of the knee. These techniques allows the physician to inject anti-inflammatory medications with maximum accuracy.

Viscosupplementation/ HYALGAN® Injection for Knee Pain

During this non-operative, outpatient procedure, the physician injects a gel-like medication called HYALGAN into the knee joint. The HYALGAN will cushion and lubricate the knee joint and help the knee move smoothly, reducing or relieving the pain of osteoarthritis.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection

This non-surgical therapy is an injection of a concentrated mixture of the patient’s own blood. The platelets are the healing part of the blood and the platelet rich plasma has other growth and healing factors that have been shown to relieve acute and chronic pain and accelerate healing of injured tissues and joints.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy is a non-invasive procedure that involves using a patient’s own stem cells known as Adult Stem Cells, which have the unique property of being able to develop into many different cell types, to treat injuries and arthritis. Stem Cell Therapy can be used to treat ligament tears, tendon tears, arthritis, neck and back pain, plantar fasciitis and more. The unique nature of stem cells enables us to use the procedure for a large scope of treatments.

Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive, percutaneous (requires no surgical incision) procedure that is designed to stop the pain caused by spinal compression fractures. The procedure stabilizes the bone and restores some or all of the lost vertebral body height due to the compression fractures. Kyphoplasty also help to prevent further collapse of the fracture, thus avoiding an increase in spinal deformity and progression of postural problems. Kyphoplasty can be performed under local or mild sedation anesthesia as an outpatient procedure.
