It is our goal to provide each patient with an individualized plan of care to improve pain control, while considering each patient’s special needs.

Treatments Offered

Dorsal Root Ganglion Therapy

The dorsal root ganglion (DRG), a bundle of nerves just outside the spinal cord, may be responsible for over-stimulating nerves and producing chronic pain in other parts of the body. DRG therapy implants a device that uses electrical impulses to interrupt pain signals.

Discogram / Discography

A discogram is a test to evaluate back pain and determine if an abnormal disc in your spine is the cause of your pain.

See Treatment Overview

Sacroiliac Joint Injection

A pain-relieving injection into the sacroiliac joint (where your spine meets your pelvis) can be both a diagnostic test and a therapeutic treatment.

See Treatment Overview

Shoulder Injections

An injection of local anesthetic and a corticosteroid into the shoulder joint can help reduce shoulder pain caused by a variety of disorders.

Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injections (Transforaminal ESI)

Transforaminal ESI is a precisely-targeted injection that delivers pain-relieving medicine into the neural foramen that contains the pain-causing nerve root. The foramen is the opening between vertebrae where spinal nerve roots exit to other parts of the body.

See Treatment Overview

Cervical Epidural Steroid Injections (CESI)

A cervical epidural steroid injection (CESI) places pain-relieving medicines into the space around the spinal cord and nerve roots in the cervical region of the spine (neck and upper back.)

See Treatment Overview

Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections (LESI)

A lumbar epidural steroid injection (LESI) places pain-relieving medicines into the space around the spinal cord and nerve roots in the lumbar region of the spine (lower back.)

See Treatment Overview

Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS)

A minimally-invasive surgical procedure to implant a device that introduces electrical impulses along the peripheral nerves (those outside the spinal cord and brain, running throughout the arms, legs and other parts of the body), to reduce chronic pain.

See Treatment Overview

Knee Injections: Hyalagan, Supartz, Euflexxa, Synvisc

Knee injections supplement the joint’s natural lubrication, helping the joint move more smoothly and comfortably.

See Treatment Overview

Spinal Cord Stimulation / Dorsal Column Stimulation (SCS/DCS)

Implantation of a tiny device that sends electrical impulses into the space around the spinal column and nerve roots can reduce chronic back pain and/or limb pain. This is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure.

See Treatment Overview

Radiofrequency Ablation/ Neurotomy (RFA)

A non-invasive therapy that uses electrical current produced by a radio wave to heat the nerve tissue in the targeted area, interrupting and decreasing the pain signals the nerves are sending out.

See Treatment Overview

Facet Joint Injections

The facet joint is where a vertebra connects with another. Injecting an anesthetic and/or corticosteroid in the facet joint can relieve pain in the back and other areas of the body.
