Tests & Treatments

  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.

  • Diaphragm Electrical Stimulation
    If you or a loved one has sustained a spinal cord injury that requires you to use a ventilator to breathe, you may be a candidate for the NeuRx DPS™.

  • Fluoroscopy
    Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses X-rays to obtain real-time moving images that is especially useful for guiding a variety of diagnostic and interventional procedures.

  • Laminectomy
    If you are experiencing back pain so severe that it interferes with your quality of life and you and your physician have exhausted other medical treatments that have proven ineffective, you may be a candidate for a laminectomy.

  • MRI
    Our specialists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of organs and tissues to help detect many conditions.

  • Myelogram
    A myelogram, also known as myelography, is performed to assess the spinal cord, subarachnoid space or other structures for abnormalities, particularly when another type of examination, such as a standard X-ray, is inconclusive.

  • Occupational Therapy
    Occupational therapy helps you to participate in the activities you need and want to do using therapeutic daily activities.

  • Physical Therapy
    The goal of physical therapy is to help you increase your mobility, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability, allowing you to move independently through your environment.
