  • We work closely with physical therapists, rehabilitation physicians, interventional pain management and other specialists to ensure you have the best chance of recovery before surgery is considered.
  • If surgery is needed, we use minimally invasive, image-guided techniques to minimize tissue damage, improve recovery and reduce complications.
  • We keep your referring physician aware of your progress by sharing consultation and follow-up notes, so that we continue to coordinate care.
