Service Overview

Pain is Not Something You Have to Live With Now or Long Term.

Dr. Shounuck Patel believes that injuries and pain should not get in the way of doing what we want to do! The body has the innate ability to heal, and we can use that power to overcome injuries and live our best lives – without harmful pain meds, dangerous cortisone, or risky irreversible surgery!

How it Works

Interventional Orthopedics solves some of these problems by taking image-guided injection procedures to the next level. No longer do we just inject the “pain generator,” but we also address all of the structural tissues that are involved in the functional unit of the body part that has an injury. In the knee, for example, pain may be coming from inflammation due to osteoarthritis, but there may be looseness to the ligaments, irritation to the tendons, wear of the bone under the cartilage, and tearing of the meniscus shock absorbers which are all involved in the function of the joint – treating all aspects with orthobiologics provides comprehensive treatment with better longer lasting results. 

In the absence of a specific trauma or injury, what is the reason why your knee became painful in the first place? Why does the outside of the knee hurt even though the inside has more arthritis? And why is it only one knee that is bothersome? Or why do you have pain in your elbow and shoulder on the same side? Or why do you have pain in your left hand if you’re right handed? You get the point. 

On the other hand of the spectrum, there are Osteopathic physicians, Chiropractors and Functional Medicine providers that do a tremendous job at looking at the body as a whole and underlying issues, but may be limited in the breadth of their treatment options when it comes to orthopedic injuries and pain conditions.

Treatments

Functional Orthopedics

Dr. Patel believes that it is not always enough to treat the pain or injury itself, but it is equally if not more important to ask why the issue came about in the first place. His approach certainly looks at the symptoms, but also addresses a patient’s systemic imbalances as well as the root causes of the condition. In doing so, Dr. Patel is able to treat all aspects of a patient’s situation with great long-lasting results. 


Interventional Orthopedics

Interventional Orthopedics bridges the gap between traditional non-surgical treatments such as physical therapy and pain management, and risky irreversible surgery. Just as Interventional Cardiology made it possible to fix many cardiovascular conditions without open heart surgery, Interventional Orthopedics utilizes advanced injection treatments using a patient’s own cells and blood growth factors to reduce the need for unnecessary orthopedic surgery.

Regenexx
Dr. Patel uses Regenexx’s proprietary custom processing to create the most advanced blood Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), bone marrow aspirated (stem) cells (BMAC), and more to create customized treatments for each patient’s individual conditions.



Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy (OMT)

As a Doctor of Osteopathy, Dr. Patel is trained to do highly skilled hands-on manual therapy that has similarities to some Chiropractic and Physical Therapy techniques. He often times uses this with or without injection treatments to provide a comprehensive approach.

Dr. Patel and all of his staff will definitely ease your pain and worries. Having Spinal Stenosis, knee problems as well as ankle problems they have made my life so much better. My last treatment was 2 years and 3 months ago. I just did a second treatment this week. Before that I was getting spinal epidurals every 3 months and living on ibuprofen and pain prescriptions. I haven't had that anymore. It's been 2 years and 3 months. He offers so much care and spends all the time in the world with you.

My meniscus was disintegrating. After my stem cell/ platelet treatment, is now whole. It is a constant source of wonder to me that sidewalk curbs which used to seem like climbing Mount Everest are no longer a challenge. Seven months out, I’m still experiencing small improvements in mobility that I didn’t even realize I had lost. An altogether life-affirming experience.

I am extremely thankful for everything Dr. Patel and his staff have done for my husband. Dr. Patel was very thorough during the evaluation and answered all of our questions very carefully. During my husband’s Spine PRP procedure, everyone made him feel very comfortable and everything went very smooth. My husband is now doing great. Thank you so much for everything!

I owe Dr. Patel my life. When I came to him I was in level 10 pain constantly, and had been bed ridden for several months. After 3 PRP treatments I am now a fully functioning human with zero pain throughout most of each day! I can even go back to activities like working out, dancing, and aerial arts! The diet and supplements he put me on even got rid of my migraines - something I've seen specialists for since I was 12!!! This man is brilliant, kind, funny, and extremely patient. He will sit with you and answer every little question you have and geek out with you on the science behind it. I literally trust him with my life.
