Orthopedic physicians prefer a non-surgical approach ... using surgery is a last resort. Orthopedic physicians are experts at diagnosing pain and finding the most appropriate physical therapy or ambulatory aids.
Houston Orthopedic Surgery Center physicians often employ a number of non-surgical treatment options to relieve our patients' joint pain and stiffness. One of the deciding factors is understanding what the procedure can and cannot accomplish.
Some of these procedures may be performed in our physicians' offices and some are referred to the surgery center including:
- Nerve Root Blocks
- Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
- Facet Ablations
- Sacroiliac Injections
