Center for Advanced Interventional Treatments

Many of the patients who visit Main Line Spine respond well to conventional therapies. Each treatment plan is usually different, and in many cases we are typically successful in recovering function, reducing pain, and restoring an individual’s quality of life.

However, conventional therapies sometimes aren’t successful. This often involves difficult-to-treat conditions such as osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease in the spine, and chronic pain. Although conventional approaches are frequently effective in managing these conditions, they don’t always work for everyone.

To address the unmet needs of these patients, we established the Main Line Spine Center for Advanced Interventional Treatments. It often is a resource for those who have exhausted all other alternatives for their conditions elsewhere.

About the Center

The Center for Advanced Interventional Treatments integrates the newest spine, musculoskeletal, and neurologic medical advances into Main Line Spine’s practice. We’ve leveraged our unique expertise and capabilities to harness the full potential of these options for the patients we treat.

At our center’s core is a deep understanding of the challenges related to difficult-to-treat chronic conditions. We couple that with a continuing process of evaluating emerging new approaches and treatments, participating in their development, and mastering those we find viable. The goal is to unlock the best-available, life-changing possibilities for our patients.
