Regenerative Procedures for Back & Neck Pain

These precise image-guided injection procedures use the healing agents from your own body to promote the body’s natural healing ability in treating bulging or herniated discs, degenerative conditions in the spine, and other back and neck conditions.

The origin of spine pain is often misidentified which can lead to inappropriate treatment and unnecessary surgery. Our highly-skilled physicians are able to identify the most probable sources of pain and select the most appropriate non-surgical minimally-invasive treatment options available.

  • Annular Tear
  • Arthritis of the Spine
  • Back Pain
  • Bone Spurs
  • Bulging Disc
  • Canal Stenosis
  • Collapsed Disc
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Degenerative Spine
  • Disc Extrusion / Protrusion
  • Facet Joint Syndrome

Please contact us if you have questions about whether you or your condition can be treated with these non-surgical procedures.

Alternative to Spine Surgery or Steroid Epidural Injections

A steroid epidural is an injection that places steroid medication around irritated or inflamed nerves in the spine. While they do help patients avoid surgery, epidurals use very high-dose steroids that can cause severe side effects and actually reduce the body’s ability to heal.

We offer a variety of minimally invasive procedures that deliver ultra-precise spinal injections where needed, utilizing advanced imaging guidance to ensure precise placement into the injured area.

Platelet Treatments for Pain from Bulging or Herniated Discs

A bulging disc is also called a disc protrusion or bulge. This means that the outer covering of the disc (annulus) is partially torn or damaged and the inner gel is causing the area to bulge. This can put pressure on a spinal nerve and cause numbness and tingling (sciatica).

A herniated disc is also called a disc extrusion, slipped disc, sequestration, or “HNP” (Herniated Nucleus Pulposis). This means that the outer covering of the disc (annulus) is completely torn or damaged and the inner gel squirts out. This can put pressure on a spinal nerve or cause severe swelling and lead to numbness and tingling (sciatica).

Bulging Disc

 Advanced Treatments for Degenerative Discs

Degenerated disc patients tend to lose disc height which can lead to a wide range of complications.

  • Compressed nerves (stenosis)
  • Facet joint overload leading to arthritis
  • Lax ligaments that result in overall spinal instability

Our advanced Interventional Orthobiologic treatment protocol focuses on Platelet and/or Bone Marrow Concentrate from the patient’s own body deployed to treat disc movement due to lax ligaments and arthritic facet joints.

Each of these critical areas above may benefit from different types of procedures.

Degenerated Disc

Advanced Treatments for Torn & Painful Discs

Disc tears are also called annular tears or HIZs (High-Intensity Zones) on MRI images. A patient with a painful and torn disc has “discogenic pain”. The outer covering of the disc can be torn due to injury and painful nerves can grow into the area, leading to low back pain, usually with sitting or activity. In addition, the tear in the disc may lead to noxious chemicals escaping and irritating the spinal nerve, which can lead to sciatica.

How Regenerative Procedures Work

Bone Marrow Stem Cell Concentrate Procedures 

Bone Marrow Concentrate contains your own stem cells. These reparative cells, inherent to our bodies, reside in various tissues, primed to initiate repair when damage occurs. However, as we age or sustain significant injuries, our capacity to recruit these cells diminishes, hindering full restoration. The bone marrow concentrate procedure addresses this issue by extracting bone marrow from the dense cell population in the back of the hip, concentrating them, and precisely administering them into the injured area with advanced imaging guidance. The objective is to alleviate pain and enhance functionality by harnessing the body's innate healing capabilities. Our protocol for Bone Marrow Stem Cell Concentrate can effectively treat a broad spectrum of orthopedic conditions. Your Interventional Orthopedics CT physician will assess your condition and imaging to determine whether bone marrow stem cell concentrate or platelet-based therapy is optimal for your orthopedic needs.

Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) procedures involve utilizing healing growth factors derived from your own blood to enhance your body’s innate repair mechanisms. This treatment has gained prominence, particularly among professional athletes, for its effectiveness in addressing joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries. PRP injections stimulate the repair cells within the targeted area, intensifying their natural healing capabilities. Similar to other Interventional Orthopedics CT procedures, PRP procedures are conducted under advanced imaging guidance to ensure precise placement of cells in the intended location. Platelet procedures, or PRP, are frequently employed for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis, spine conditions, and nerve-related issues.
