Dr. Guarino designs an individualized treatment plan not only to help decrease pain symptoms, but to provide the tools needed to enhance one’s quality of life. Every evaluation involves consideration of each of the following: surgery, injections, medications, physical conditioning, and psychological care. Ultimate decisions about a care path involve coordination between the patient and the physician.
The current focus of Dr Guarino’s practice is the use of interventional procedures to reduce pain as well as the need for opioid medications.
A parital list of interventional procedures are the following:
Epidurals in the spine
Facet injections in the spine
Radiofrequency neuroablations (nerve burning)
Laser Spine Surgery
Discograms and disc decompressions
Spinal cord stimulation
Intrathecal targeted drug administration (morphine pump)
Endoscopic spine surgery
