New treatments for the pain!

MILD Procedure

mild® is a safe procedure that can help patients diagnosed with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) stand longer and walk farther with less pain.  It is a short, outpatient procedure, performed through a very small incision (about the size of a baby aspirin) that requires no general anesthesia, no implants, and no stitches. Study data show that 79% of patients experience a significant reduction in pain and a significant increase in mobility.  In addition, the mild® procedure has been proven to have a very low risk of major complications.

Vertiflex Superion Procedure

The Vertiflex Superion procedure is an innovative and minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS). Once placed, the device helps open up the narrow area of your spine, relieving the pressure and pain associated with spinal stenosis. Click here to see more detail information.

Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Decompression

Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar laminectomy or laminectomy (PELL) is a minimally invasive surgical technique to treat lumbar canal stenosis. The procedure is undertaken using a single port endoscope, as with percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PED). Because PED has the powerful advantage of structural preservation, it allows for short hospital stays and early recovery of the patient. PELL and PED are conceptually very similar, in that they are both minimally invasive.

Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) Spinal Cord Stimulation

Devices to stimulate the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) became available in the mid-2010s for treating chronic pain, particularly in areas that were hard to treat with traditional spinal cord stimulation, such as the hand, chest, abdomen, foot, knee or groin. Click here to see more detail information.

University of Maryland School of Pharmacy’s medical cannabis program

“There are 150 students enrolled in the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy’s medical cannabis program, which explores marijuana from myriad angles, including clinical care, science, and policy.”

More and more, it is becoming known that cannabis can be used as medical marijuana. At last, University of Maryland started the nation’s first Medical Marijuana Master’s Degree program! There are now students who will focus and study medical cannabis. We hope to find out more about the therapeutic and health effects of cannabis, and more potentials of it. Additional people participating in the research to develop a better understanding will benefit numerous patients and health services.

Although the classes are only available online right now, students are still required to attend in-person for a good number of times during the program. Through this first step, we hope that people will become more comfortable with using cannabis for medical purposes, while also maintaining control of who and how cannabis will be used for the general public.

Ketamine Can Fight

Depression is a very common mental health disorder with more than 3 million US cases per year. There are numerous ways to battle against it, such as antidepressants, therapy, and even in-patient treatment at hospitals. Ketamine is one of the highly effective treatments for depression.

Because these nerves travel to the hips, buttocks, legs and feet, an injury in the lumbar spine can cause symptoms in these areas.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Treatment

Using the body’s own elements of natural regeneration certainly has an advantage in healing an injury, which is exactly the mechanism used when performing platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections. The natural response of the body to an injury is to incite an inflammatory response to attract certain healing elements to the site of injury through the blood vessel system. The platelets in our blood are one of the integral elements used in this healing process. 

The blood has been broken down into its three main components: platelet poor plasma (PPP), platelet rich plasma, and red blood cells. It is the platelet rich plasma that is the basis of all PRP therapies. The centrifugation separates the platelets from the other blood cells and increases their concentration. Then the increased concentration of platelets is combined with the remaining blood that was drawn.

PRP therapy may be used to manage numerous injuries including muscle injuries (hamstring sprains, biceps and triceps injuries, calf and quadriceps injuries), ligament injuries (ACL, MCL, LCL sprains and tears of the knees), tendon injuries (Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff injuries, tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis), patellar and quadriceps tendonitis), degenerative conditions such as arthritis (osteoarthritis), joint pain, degenerative disc disease, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, neck and back pain, nerve injury, plastic surgery, burns, split-thickness skin graft donor sites, and stress fractures. It may also be used after surgical procedures to assist in the healing process in areas of poor blood supply.
