Advanced Procedures

Advanced procedures may offer an alternative.​

Many patients suffering with chronic pain have tried medical therapy and injection therapy. Sometimes medications and injection are insufficient to restore function in patients with complex pain problems. Some medications are associated with uncomfortable side effects.

Advanced procedures may offer an alternative to pain medications and conventional injection therapies, such as epidurals, nerve blocks, and radio frequency ablations.
