Modern Medicine’s orthopedic services are crucial to rounding out its multi-faceted and individualized care. Its orthopedic practice aims to correct the deformities or disorders of the spine, joints, or muscles. This type of healthcare is central to treatment for back pain, while employing various techniques including physical therapy. As each patient and case is distinct, every plan of treatment and follow up care plan is customized based on the patient’s condition and lifestyle.
Modern Medicine’s orthopedic suite of services includes:
Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) injections use a portion of the patient’s own blood to facilitate healing. This technique is very effective to assist in healing injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Additionally, PRP injections improve function and decrease pain to various ailments in the elbow, wrist, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle.
These injections are primarily used for joints such as ankle, elbow, hip, knee, shoulder, spine, and wrist. Cortisone shots are successful in relieving pain and inflammation in these areas.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery & Extremity Surgery
Minimally invasive Spine Surgery (MISS) does not involve a long incision, unlike most open surgeries. The most common uses for this procedure involve decompression and spinal fusion. Unlike traditional surgery, this technique does not damage the muscles surrounding the area. The benefits of MISS are pain relief, removal of a portion(s) of a herniated disc, and successful spinal fusion. Like MISS, Extremity Surgery implements the same techniques, but on the other joints of the body such as hip replacement. Like other minimally invasive surgeries, the recovery time is greatly reduced from the traditional approach.
