Minimally invasive techniques reduce the trauma associated with surgical procedures. This allows patients to recover faster. Patients who choose minimally invasive surgery may experience: shorter recovery, less pain after surgery, and less scarring.
Minimally invasive surgery usually involves making tiny incisions, sometimes no more than a quarter-inch in legnth. This results in less trauma to the body then experienced with an open incision. Through these incisions, instruments along with a tiny camera are inserted allowing the surgeon and staff to view the operation from a flat panel monitor.
Because minimally invasive surgery usually requires only tiny incisions, patients generally return to their normal daily activities much faster than with traditional surgery.

During EPAT Therapy thousands of tiny acoustic sound waves are painlessly applied to the area of injury. The application of acoustic waves creates micro-ruptures in the capillaries of the tendon and bone and significantly increase the bodies response to send healing cells to the area. The new cells improve the blood supply and the oxygenation resulting in expedited healing of the injury.

PRP Therapy is an FDA Approved injection procedure that uses the body’s own cells to repair injury and reduce inflammation. During a PRP Procedure, a small sample of blood is taken from the patient. This sample is then placed in a centrifuge where the PRP cells are isolated. Once isolated these naturally restorative cells are then multiplied. After a sufficient number of cells (in the millions) are captured, the plasma is then reintroduced to the site of injury or pain via injection. This injection insures the cells are applied directly to the underlying cause of your pain.
