  1. Vertebroplasty is an innovative, minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that has proven to strengthen the vertebrae of your spine and significantly improve pain caused by vertebral body compression fractures.

    Vertebroplasty involves injecting acrylic cement with a biopsy needle into a fractured painful vertebra.

    Before the procedure, an IV line is started so that the patient can relax as needed.

    Fluoroscopy, a real time X-ray machine is used in order to assure proper placement of the needle. With x-ray guidance the needle is then advanced to the targeted vertebrae.

    The acrylic cement quickly dries and forms a support structure within the vertebra that provide stabilization and strength.

    The needle makes a small puncture in your skin that is easily covered with a small bandage after the procedure.

    Vertebroplasty is a ground breaking procedure that has proven to reduce pain and increase vertebral body height.

  4. Platlet Rich Plasma therapy, injection is a very EXCITING therapy that helps heal joint injuries and put an end to joint pain.

    First, we draw the patient’s blood and put it into a centrifuge. Next we spin the centrifuge at VERY HIGH speeds to produce plasma with concentrated platelets. We then take the plasma filled with these platelets and re-inject them into the injury.

    We found platelets don’t just stop bleeding but are healers of the body. This AMAZING discovery is often used as an alternative to surgery.

    Platelet Rich Plasma therapy can treat torn and damaged tendons, ligaments, cartilage and disks.
