Tomi Prvulovic, M.D. is a physician specializing in interventional pain medicine/treatment and
regenerative medicine for chronic pain.
Interventional pain medicine for chronic pain consists of various forms of minimally invasive treatments such as injections, branch blocks, radiofrequency ablation/rhizotomy, spinal cord stimulators, kyphoplasty, endoscopic discectomy and other modalities. Patients who have tried and failed conservative treatments/surgeries are ideal candidates for interventional pain management for treatment of their herniated discs, chronic back/leg pain, failed back surgery and CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome).
The innovative ﬁeld of regenerative medicine works to restore structure and function of tissues damaged by disease, trauma or congenital issues vs the current clinical strategy that focuses primarily on treating the symptoms.
The goal of this approach is to find a way to cure previously untreatable injuries and diseases.
