Pain Management Treatments

Dr. Lai strives to restore functionality to the body with innovative and effective treatment methods at Journey Surgery Center. Our pain management specialists will meet with each patient and perform examinations and tests to identify and treat their conditions. Through a comprehensive consultation, our physicians can create a personalized treatment plan for the patient. Each treatment plan is crafted by one of our board-certified specialists detailing every aspect of the procedural and recovery process. Dr. Lai believes in exhausting all conservative treatment methods before considering more involved procedures.

Steroid Injections

Steroid injections can treat one to two local areas of pain and inflammation. The steroid injection will be carefully placed in the problem area to address the injury or condition.

Epidural Injections

Epidural injections are used to deliver anti-inflammatory medicine to and around the spinal area to relieve chronic pain or inflammation. Candidates for an epidural injection may suffer from pain in the neck, arm, back or leg.

Joint Injections

Joint injections are utilized to alleviate chronic pain in the hip, shoulder, knee and other joints. Dr. Lai uses corticosteroid steroid injections for joint injuries or conditions to reduce inflammation and redness.

Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine harnesses the body’s power to heal cells and tissues to treat injuries and conditions. Candidates for regenerative medicine may suffer from chronic pain, injury, joint pain and various conditions.
