If you suffer from back pain or neck pain and come to us for help, you can rest assured that we try to use the most effective but least invasive therapy appropriate for your condition and goals. That’s why we have both neurosurgeons and physiatrists in our practice to offer comprehensive spine options, including spine surgery, injection therapy, and rehabilitation. Although our neurosurgeons have always teamed with pain specialists and rehabilitation experts, we now have two physiatrists within our practice -- Erasmus G. Morfe, D.O., and Jason Peragine, M.D. -- who provide nonsurgical treatments to help reduce pain, restore function and improve quality of life.
If a patient comes to our practice having already tried medication and physical therapy, the next step might be spinal injections. Spinal injections can be used before or after spine surgery, or sometimes can help patients avoid spine surgery.
