Breakthrough Treatments for Spine and Joint PainJan 31, 2024 02:55PM ● By Jerome Bilaos
When Dr. Stephen Roman, Jr., finished his medical subspecialty training 20 years ago, there were limited options in the treatment of pain. For many years, only minimal changes in offerings to patients became available. Recently, however, many breakthroughs have occurred in the treatment of spinal and joint pain. This includes new technologies such as regenerative medicine which has provided many new options that were not available just a few years ago.
“There are many patients that I have told throughout the years that there was nothing else I could do for them. Now I am inviting many of these patients back to learn about new technologies that were not available when I had last seen them,” shares Dr. Roman. Conditions amenable to new minimally-invasive treatment options include chronic low back pain caused by degenerated spinal discs. These are some of the patients that he is most excited to see because when he last saw them their options were usually limited to surgery or chronic prescription medication use. Other patients benefiting from recent advances include patients seeking alternative treatments to joint surgery.
“It’s an exciting time in medical history,” states Dr. Roman, “and I’m grateful to be a part of this historic leap in our approach to patient care.”
