Back in the Game
Our talented physicians and staff are skilled at keeping weekend warriors, high school, collegiate and professional athletes active and healthy. Our team will assess if non surgical or surgical treatments are indicated with the latest diagnostic tools and thoroughly review a treatment plan with the goal of returning to full function as quickly as possible. Sometimes rest, rehabilitation and strengthening or splinting are all that is needed. Should surgery be most effective to treat the injury, our doctor’s experience allows for discussion of the most appropriate reconstruction approach and technique.
Hip, Knee, and Shoulder Pain
There are many non operative options that help reduce pain and maintain joint mobility and function. Using the latest diagnostic and imaging tools, our physicians can prescribe a treatment course that helps alleviate the pain and discomfort of a degenerating joint. Treatment can include any combination of rehabilitation, utilizing braces, prescription medicines, injections with steroids or cartilage regenerating meds. In addition, we are adept at identifying those who would benefit from regenerative therapies. These specialized treatments make use of your own infection fighting cells to aid your body in healing difficult problems such as tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, patellar tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis, Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis.

This type of radiography uses x-ray sensitive plates to immediately capture data during the patient examination. Instead of the use of an intermediate cassette to transfer information, data is automatically transferred to a computer management system. Digital radiography has rapidly become the preferred choice amongst health providers. Our unit is inspected and licensed by the State of Texas.
The bone mineral density test is a simple, painless, non-invasive procedure that takes approximately 30 minutes. You will be exposed to a very small amount of radiation. The test will measure your bone mineral density (BMD), or bone mass, and compares that number with a reference population. This information will help your physician determine if you need to take any specific steps to protect your bone health.

Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses x rays to obtain real time images that allows guidance for interventions, injections, reductions or diagnostic procedures.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI is available in-house by our sister company Cross Timbers Imaging. MRI scanners produce highly detailed images of your body without using ionizing radiation. The large, 1.5 T magnet in the MRI system allows the atoms in your body to receive radio signals. The radio signals returned by your body are processed by a computer into finely detailed images. MRI images can aid your physician in making a rapid, accurate diagnosis.
