Advanced Interventional Pain Procedures

  • Radiofrequency Ablation, (RFA).

    RFA uses radio waves to decrease the ability of the nerve to send pain signals to the brain.
     

  • Spinal Cord Stimulation
     

  • Platelet Rich Plasma, (PRP), therapy for pain
    PRP therapy is a relatively new therapy using the body’s own cells to stimulate healing of musculoskeletal conditions. PRP may be used for knee conditions such as arthritis, ligament injuries, and sprains. It has also shown promise in rotator cuff tears, plantar fasciitis, back and spine injuries, and tennis elbow. With PRP therapy, a small sample of your own blood is drawn, and spun down to separate the platelets from the other blood components. These concentrated platelets have a variety of growth factors that promote healing. The PRP is then injected into the injured joint or ligament. PRP uses your own blood, so there is little chance of infection, or allergic reaction. Patients may be able to avoid surgery, improve function and decrease pain through accelerated healing with PRP therapy.
