PMSI Division of Pain Medicine has in-office procedure rooms that allows Dr. Cano to perform some treatments on site rather than a hospital setting. A few of the procedures Dr. Cano provides are facet joint injections, cervical epidural injections, thoracic vertebroplasty, and lumbar discogram.
PMSI Division of Pain Medicine is excited to now offer state of the art, Stem Cell Regenerative medicine treatments.
Intradiscal Stem Cell Therapy (IDSCT)
Dr.Cano uses intradiscal stem cell therapy (IDSCT) to treat Degenerative Disc disease (DDD) in a minimally invasive, outpatient setting. DDD is a condition whereas the soft, spongy inside of the disc (nucleus pulposus) has over time, degenerated and is no longer present or is not able to function as a shock-absorber. This degeneration can happen after a longstanding disc herniation, due to arthritis, or after a lumbar fusion when the level above and below the fusion can develop DDD.
Intra-articular Stem Cell Therapy
Dr.Cano can inject stem cells into the knee to help treat cartilage loss due to osteoarthritis, damage to the meniscus or ligaments of the knee.
In both cases, the stem cells are obtained from the patient’s own bone marrow and carefully super-selected through a centrifuge system for maximum purity and effectiveness. The stem cells are then injected into the affected region with the guidance of x-rays and mild sedation in an outpatient setting.
