Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Thiyagarajah "We treat spinal pain with x-ray guided needle procedures. Services include past medical review, initial consultation, electro-diagnostic studies and pain relieving procedures. Based on our evaluation, we will provide therapeutic options. If need arise, we may refer you to spine surgeons for open spine surgery or non-invasive pain specialists for long term pain management. We offer excellence in patient care, personal attention by attending physicians only, and very short wait times for our patients. Treatment plans are specifically designed for each individual to reduce pain, improve function, and maximize quality of life."
