Advanced Interventional Techniques

Our physician practice provides a breadth of advanced interventions not offered or done by other pain practices. In some cases, we are the only ones that perform such techniques in Hawaii. A few examples include Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression, Kyphoplasty, Occipital Nerve Stimulators for migraine headaches, Percutaneous Disc Decompression, Geniculate nerve blocks for Knee pain, and Radiofrequency ablation of articulating branches for Hip pain.  

Multidisciplinary Approach

Our practice believes in a multimodal approach inclusive of medical, advanced interventional technqiues, complimentary, and holistic approaches.  We utlize treatments such as acupuncture, chiropractor, physical therapy, meditation, yoga, and psychological approaches to maximize function and pain relief. 



Novel Pain Treatments

We are always looking for novel treatments to help out patients.  Some examples include ketamine infusions for chronic pain such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, propofol infusions for migraine headaches, Stellate Ganglion Blocks for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and stem cell injections for degenerative discs, tendons, and ligament injuries.
