Interventional Pain

I use interventional pain injections and minimally invasive surgical procedures for patients who have tried and failed various conservative treatments such as medications, physical therapy, manual medicine.  Interventional treatments can be used for acute pain conditions such as when you get a sudden shooting pain down your leg, a debilitating joint pain or a nerve entrapment. There are also modalities I use for chronic pain conditions.

Treatments:

  • Trigger point injections
  • Dry needling
  • Joint injections
  • Radiofrequency ablation for genicular (knee) nerves: for pain after knee replacement or to prolong having to get a knee replacement
  • Epidural steroids: cervical, thoracic, lumbar
  • Medial branch blocks and radiofrequency ablation: cervical, thoracic lumbar
  • Spinal Cord Simulator trials and implants

Medications:

  • Platelet rich plasma
  • Stem cells
  • Steroid
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Prolotherapy
  • Homeopathy
