The Vertiflex Procedure

The Vertiflex Procedure is a cutting edge therapy for patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. During this minimally invasive procedure, which is approved by the FDA and covered by Medicare, a small spacer is implanted between the bony structures of the spine (spinous processes). These spacers relieve pressure on spinal nerves, alleviating back and leg pain while standing and walking. Learn More.

Sacroiliac Joint Fusion

A sacroiliac joint fusion, using a bone allograft, is a minimally invasive procedure designed to relieve pain in patients with chronic sacroiliac joint disorders. Your surgeon performs this 30-minute procedure in the operating room under X-ray guidance. Learn More.

Wireless Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

Wireless Peripheral Nerve Stimulation is a novel technique designed to relieve pain caused by a damaged peripheral nerve, including intercostal, dorsal scapular, and ilioinguinal nerves, resulting in chest wall pain, back pain, or pelvic pain. The wireless peripheral nerve stimulator is the smallest implanted stimulator system, introduced through a needle under X-ray or ultrasound guidance. The external wearable antenna transmits power wirelessly to the stimulator. Learn More.

Stem Cell Therapy

When fetuses form in utero, the process begins with stem cells. These undifferentiated cells migrate to the appropriate body part and “grow into” the cell type used to build a specific tissue. These cells are called fetal stem cells. As adults, our bodies also manufacture undifferentiated cells that possess the ability to develop into a specific cell type.  Learn More.  

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy

When injury or trauma occurs, your body calls on platelets to repair the area. Platelets, the master healing component of blood, contain growth factors that work to reduce inflammation and repair damage.  Learn More.  

Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant

Spinal cord stimulator includes an implanted battery unit attached to leads placed in the appropriate level of the epidural space in your spine. Electrical impulses stimulate pain fibers and the new impulse reaches the brain before the pain signal arrives. Pain is blocked and you feel relief.  Learn More.  

Intrathecal Pump Implant

Intrathecal drug delivery system, or pain pump, delivers a very small amount of pain medication directly to the intrathecal space, or area of fluid around the spinal cord. This allows a low medication dose to be delivered precisely to pain receptors, often eliminating the need for oral pain medication.   Learn More.  

Epidural Steroid Injection

Epidural steroid injection is a common treatment option for back, leg, neck and arm pain. The goal of the injection is to reduce inflammation resulting in pain relief.  Learn More.  

Selective Nerve Root Block

Selective nerve root block (SNRB) is an injection of steroid and local anesthetic (numbing medication) around a spinal nerve root. The injection is used to determine the location of a specific nerve root that is the suspected cause of your pain. This procedure may also be used to treat arm and leg pain related to a herniated disc.  Learn More. 

Piriformis Injection

The piriformis muscle is one of the muscles deep in the buttock that rotates the leg outward. The sciatic nerve runs very close to this muscle. If the muscle becomes tight, it can put pressure on the sciatic nerve causing pain in the buttock and leg.  Learn More.  

Medial Branch Blocks

Medial branch block is an injection of a local anesthetic (numbing medication) near a medial branch nerve. A medial branch nerve carries pain signals from the facet joint of the spine. The facet joints are located between the bones of your spine (vertebrae).   Learn More.  

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a treatment option for patients with neck and back pain related to arthritis, car accident and trauma. Radiofrequency ablation utilizes a specialized generator that produces radiofrequency current. This current passes through a needle and results in precise heating at the tip of the needle which is placed near the nerve carrying pain signals from the facet joints.  Learn More.  

Sacroiliac Joint Injection

Sacroiliac Joint injection is a treatment option for patients with back pain related to inflammation or arthritis in one or both sacroiliac joints. The procedure involves injection of medications (Steroid and local anesthetic) into the joint.  Learn More.  

Lumbar Sympathetic Block

The sympathetic nerves are a group of nerves found along the front side of the spinal column. They are part of the autonomic nervous system and control many functions including: sweating, heart rate, digestion, and blood pressure. Sometimes these nerves continue to transmit pain following an injury even after the injury has healed.  Learn More.  

Stellate Ganglion Block

Stellate ganglion block is an injection of local anesthetic (numbing medication) around the stellate ganglion nerves which are located in the front of the neck. Stellate ganglion block may be therapeutic (to relieve pain) and/or diagnostic to determine the source of your pain.  Learn More.  

Trigger Point Injection

A trigger point is a tender area in a muscle that causes generalized musculoskeletal pain when overstimulated. A trigger point injection is a treatment option for patients with pain caused by trigger points.  Learn More.  

Hip Injection

The hip joint is a large joint between the pelvis and leg. You may experience pain if you have inflammation in the joint. The procedure involves injecting medication (steroid) into the hip joint to help reduce your pain.  Learn More.  

Botox Injections

Botox injection is used to treat chronic refractory migraines. A very small needle is used to do the injections and the injection itself is not painful. Botox mixed with salt water (Saline) can produce a brief burning sensation at the injection site.  Learn More.
