Nonsurgical treatments


Our team includes experts in a variety of less-invasive, leading-edge techniques:

  • Diagnostic ultrasound that allows for real-time imaging of soft tissues that cannot be seen on X-ray, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.
  • Ultrasound-guided joint and soft-tissue injections to more accurately reach sore spots for optimal healing and pain relief.
  • Regenerative medicine therapy, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP), for the treatment of chronic tendinopathy, arthritis and plantar fasciitis.
  • Tenex, a minimally invasive procedure specially designed to relieve suffering associated with tendon damage, such as pain in the rotator cuff, tennis or golfer’s elbow, or runner’s knee.

For knee, hip, shoulder:
your Joint Journey

Joint replacement surgery is about much more than an expert repair or procedure. It’s about how you feel before, during and after. We customize an educational experience for you to help you through every step of your journey. So you feel better prepared and get the attention you need to experience a better outcome.
