Ultrasound-Guided and Fluoroscopy-Guided Spine Injections

We also offer minimally invasive, nonsurgical treatments such as ultrasound-guided and fluoroscopy-guided spine injections for individuals who aren’t in need of surgery just yet. The spine is a complex structure, with many of the important components hiding deep beneath the skin. This makes placing a needle in the desired location both difficult and potentially dangerous without imaging guidance. The imagery technology we use ensures all procedures will be performed according to the highest safety standards and achieve the best possible outcome.

Spine injections are performed by Dr. Justin Grant, our fellowship trained sports medicine osteopathic physician. Dr. Grant utilizes a relationship-based care model that helps patients take ownership for their care, health and treatment outcomes in order to restore an active lifestyle.

Dr. Grant plays an integral role in the CAO spine program. In addition to performing spine injections, he is responsible for the management of a wide range of spine injuries, and he is first assist on surgery days. Dr. Sielatycki and Dr. Grant collaborate to develop a customized care plan that addresses each patient’s unique individual needs.
