Ultrasound can be used to evaluate numerous acute and chronic orthopedic injuries, and can give a clear picture of soft tissue injuries that do not show up well on X-rays. It is a painless and does not use any radiation.
Regenerative medicine is the utilization of different treatments that can assist the body’s own healing mechanisms. This can be achieved by using the patient’s own cells (platelet rich plasma; stem cells) or from material donated from another person (amniotic regenerative injections).
Tenex is a minimally-invasive procedure vs. conventional surgery that can help eliminate chronic tendon pain by precisely targeting and removing damaged tissue. Tenex Health technology allows physicians to perform a minimally-invasive percutaneous needle tenotomy or fasciotomy, minimizing pain, and reducing recovery time.
Ultrasound-guided hydrodissection is a new method of treatment of entrapment nerves. Entrapment neuropathy of peripheral nerves are common, but are often less recognized as a source of pain. For some patients, nerve hydrodissection may have the same effect as a surgical release, with resolution of the numbness, tingling and pain.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that promotes healing without surgery. PRP is a concentrated platelet solution is injected into the injured area to stimulate healing in a variety of orthopedic injuries.
Stem cells are immature cells that have the ability to develop into bone, cartilage, muscle, tendon, or ligament. The objective of the stem cell procedures is to harness the natural regenerative ability of tissues and use that to treat orthopedic conditions.
I have seen Dr. Sussman for a chronic plantar fasciitis. I had seen several physicians regarding this condition and he was the only one who was able to cure it completely. He was understanding, patient and committed to finding a remedy and getting me back to working out and pain free. I couldn't be happier with him as an orthopedic physician.
My experience is simple. I had four tears in my elbow. After Dr. Sussman’s performed PRP on me I was skeptical because it did not work for the first 3 weeks then the fourth week the pain level started to go down. I am now 100 percent better. I pay tennis on an A level and now I can even throw a baseball about 300 yard again.
Dr. Sussman is the first physician I've met during the last eight years of seeking an explanation and successful plan of treatment for my hip and sacroiliac pain. Each visit he has shown both his compassion for what I am going through. I trust Dr. Sussman completely. He takes my perspective as a patient into account, allowing us to work as a team towards a goal.
I had been in a lot of pain for about nine years, but did not want to have to have surgery. I had seen several doctors with no real success. I tried the cortisone injections, night splints, and PT but nothing was working. Then someone told me about Tenex and suggested I see Dr Sussman. BEST thing I ever did! He got me booked right away and it was a huge success. It was the easiest surgery and was all done in about 15mins. When he finished he said all set and I could not believe it. It was done with a local block and I walked out in a boot an hour later. I only had to wear the boot for about 10 days and I was good to go. I have been pain free since my surgery over a year ago. I would highly recommend this to anyone! In fact I did send several people to him and they were candidates as well and are also cured.
