Our practice
Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons and pain specialists can quickly and accurately diagnose and treat the underlying cause of your pain. Beginning with a thorough examination of your injury or condition, our team will discuss your medical history and situation to better understand your pain and work with you to develop a personalized comprehensive treatment plan.
Our practice conducts diagnostic testing including:
- Digital ultrasound: We utilize digital ultrasound for joint and soft tissue injections to accurately place medications and to diagnose certain conditions
- Digital x-ray: Digital X-ray imaging uses sensors in place of traditional photographic film to create a crisper image and instant image viewing for a faster, more accurate diagnosis
- Electromyography (EMG): An EMG is a diagnostic procedure that involves tiny devices called electrodes to evaluate the electrical signals between muscles and motor neurons (the nerve cells that control them). An EMG translates these signals into graphs, sounds or numerical values that a specialist will interpret to assess the health and function of the muscle-to-nerve connection
- Nerve conduction study (NCS): An NCS tests the speed and degree of electrical activity in your nerves to determine if a nerve is functioning properly
Our highly trained and vastly experienced physicians share a common goal: to relieve pain and restore function as soon as possible through quality testing, treatment, and continued care. Should surgery be required to fix an injury or medical condition, our full service medical hospital is here to support all of your medical requirements and needs.
