Each patient, depending on condition and pathology, is matched with a doctor who specializes in a particular branch of medicine. Our facility utilizes fluoroscopy, or x-ray guidance, for most pain management and spinal procedures, which allows for a more precise procedure, yielding excellent and longer lasting results.
