New State-of-the-Art Fluoroscopy Suite Expands Treatment Options for Patients

The Kaplan Center now has a state-of-the-art fluoroscopy suite and the ability to perform even more precision-guided procedures.

Fluoroscopy is like an x-ray movie. The X-ray is a very low dose which minimizes exposure to patients and maximizes safety. Real-time, moving images are ideal for needle placement when performing injections. For spine and most joint injections, fluoroscopy is the gold-standard of image-guided procedures.

The Kaplan Center can now offer PRP (platelet rich plasma) and Stem Cell injections for disc problems, spinal arthritis, nerve root disorders, and joint injuries. Also known as Regenerative Injection Therapy, these techniques deliver natural healing cells directly to the source of the problem. We offer a safe and effective approach to repair damage in areas of the body which are slow to heal.

Fluoroscopic-guided procedures are the newest addition to the many cutting-edge techniques which the integrative team at the Kaplan Center can use to help you achieve amazing results.

If you would like to schedule an appointment or if you would like to know if treatment under fluoroscopy is an option for your pain condition, please call 703-532-4892.
