I have diabetes pain and Dr BETTS has helped me for years. Not just with prescriptions but with my overall health. My grandmother was a surgical nurse and she taught us a lot about finding a good doctor. And we don't settle for second-best The staff is great the office runs professional. And if you have the opportunity to have Dr Beck at Street you you are in great hands

I had a painful slipped disc and was expecting a long term treatment. Dr. Betts did an epidural, it was amazing...pain gone, never needed another treatment. He was skilled, I was awake and could not believe how smooth and skilled he was. Thanks Dr. Betts!

Dr. Betts' Care Philosophy

Individual care to identify the source of pain, and use the most advanced surgical and procedural techniques to diagnose and treat pain disorders.

Dr. Betts says...

I am a national speaker, published author and physician instructor for the diagnosis and treatment of pain disoders, including all spine, nerve and musculoskeletal injection procedures. Orange County Physician of Excellence Award winner in pain managment.

I specialize in the treatment of painful vertebral compression fractures with the minimally invasive Kyphoplasty procedure. 

Ultrasound guided diagonsis and pain related procedures are available in my practice for patients with muscoloskeletal pain including shoulders, hips, knees, bursitis and tendonitis pain.

Medical management of chronic pain is also available with opiate and non-opiate therapy, with specialization in Fibromyalgia/Chronic Widespread Pain syndrome.

Dr. Betts says...

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure for treating painful compression fractures of the spine. This is an outpatient procedure that is done with 'Twilight Sleep' anesthesia, that results in excellent paint relief within minutes to hours after the procedure. I have safely performed over 750 of these procedures in my career ranging from lower lumbar vertebra to upper thoracic vertebra and fractures of the sacrum.
