An Inguinal Hernia, the most common, is a tear or substantial weakness of the muscle wall in the abdomen. The tear enables the inner lining to protrude, which forms a pouch.

CESI

Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection decreases inflammation, and therefore the resulting pain, in or around the nerves in the neck, the shoulders, the arms, and fingers. Inflammation is usually caused by a bulging disc pressing on the nerves, or severe arthritis around the nerves of the neck. The injection only improves the level of pain and is not a cure for the underlying condition.

Discography

Discography is an exploratory medical procedure that investigates the intervertebral disc's role in the production of a patient's pain.

LESI

Lumbar epidural steroid injection is a long lasting steroid injection to the epidural space that reduces inflammation, swelling, and alleviates pain, tingling, and numbness. The epidural space is the area that surrounds the spinal cord and the nerves stemming from it. The injection only improves the level of pain and is not a cure for the underlying condition.

Neurolytic Blocks

Neurolytic blocks are used to interrupt pain pathways. Neurolytic blocks are also useful to control intractable visceral pain experienced from cancer. The injection only improves the level of pain and is not a cure for the underlying condition.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation, or radio waves, uses heat to destroy tissue, usually a nerve. It is a non-surgical treatment for spine pain. It has been used for several years in patients who have abnormally fast heartbeats. It is also currently being used to destroy some tumors. The injection only improves the level of pain and is not a cure for the underlying condition.

Steroid Injection – Spine

An epidural steroid injection is an injection of local anesthetic and steroid into the epidural space. The epidural space is a space located in the spine just outside of the sac containing spinal fluid. The epidural steroid injection relieves pain by reducing the inflammation of the nerve roots. An epidural steroid injection only improves the level of pain and is not a cure for the underlying condition.

Plastic Surgery

Plastic Surgery is a specific medical specialty that includes two main fields of surgical focus: cosmetic and reconstructive. Call, (773) 508-9800 to schedule your appointment or submit an online enquiry.

    Ankle and/or Foot Arthroscopy/Endoscopy

    Arthroscopic and endoscopic techniques treat many foot and ankle injuries without the need of large incisions and possible complications typically encountered during more invasive procedures.

    Ankle Fracture

    Ankle injuries are among the most common of the bone and joint injuries. Frequently it is difficult to diagnose a fracture (broken bone) from a sprain, a dislocation, or tendon injury without the use of x-rays of the ankle to confirm whether there is indeed a fracture.

    Bunionectomy

    A bunionectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a bunion. A bunion is an enlargement of the joint at the base of the big toe and consists of bone and soft tissue. It is usually a result of inflammation and irritation from wearing narrow or tight shoes.

    Nail Surgery

    Nail surgery requires a great deal of expertise that treats extensive damage to the nail matrix. Extensive damage is considered to be permanent loss of nail or growth of an abnormal or irregular nail. Chronic nail ingrowths require nail surgery. If necessary, the inflamed regions around the nail are also removed. In extreme cases of allergies or skin cancer, a particular section of the nail is removed and sometimes operated on.

    Benign Skin Lesions

    Benign skin lesions are common and are removed to improve the skin's appearance. Removal of certain benign skin lesions are not a health threat and are usually considered cosmetic surgery.

    Plantar Warts

    A plantar wart is generally a small growth, typically on hands and feet but can appear on other locations. Warts are common, and are caused by a viral infection, specifically by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and are contagious when in contact with the skin of an infected person. Treatment involves cutting away the wart or destroying the wart by using an electric needle in a process called electrodessication and curettage.

    Urology

    Urology is a medical specialty that diagnoses and treats conditions of the urinary tracts of males and females and reproductive system of males. The organs covered under urology are: kidneys, ureters, urninary bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs.
