Let’s get you moving in the right direction

Our muscles, joints, and bones help us move around, from walking the dog to picking up a tennis match. When aches, pains and inflammation have become your new normal, it’s time to seek help for a possible musculoskeletal condition.

When pain from conditions like bursitis, tennis elbow, or pinched nerves limits you from doing what you lost most, our goal is to tame whatever is inflamed.

We use image-guided interventions to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, like:

We specialize in musculoskeletal imaging and intervention, which allows us to treat big pains by making small incisions roughly the size of a pencil eraser.

Your doctor then inserts image-guided technologies through the small incision, which projects a live feed of your insides on a separate screen. This gives your doctor a clear view of your musculoskeletal structures to perform procedures without making a large, open incision.

Because image-guided therapies require less downtime in recovery, you’ll be back to moving free from inflammation, aches and pains even faster.
