      I've had 3 different lumbar injections by Dr. Stensland and he and his staff were very personable and professional. I wouldn't trust another Dr. to give me a spinal injection. Although I live in Florida now, I came back to Dr. Stensland for the current injection, ordered by my Neuro-Surgeon.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Stensland's Care Philosophy

      Physiatry is rewarding because the focus is on restoring function. It's more than shooting for good test results; we get to help people play with their grandkids or go for a walk. These are the things that are really meaningful to someone's everyday life; and thus very rewarding for me. While I work most frequently with patients who are suffering from pain in their spine or joints, I do treat pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body as well. Pain can be a complex, complicated puzzle and often is referred from remote areas that one would think to be unrelated to their perceived region of pain. I believe treatment should proceed from an initial conservative approach to more aggressive approach in a graduated fashion. Treatments include physical therapy, medications, interventional injections of steroids or more aggressive treatments of nerve ablations or spinal cord stimulation. A team approach is often used by working with other providers to obtain the best results possible.
