Home / Non-Surgical Orthopedic Treatments

Surgery is not required for every orthopedic condition. At University Hospitals, our orthopedic team offers a wide range of non-surgical techniques to effectively treat muscle pain, skeletal pain and lack of mobility.

Some conditions Endoscopic Discectomy treats are:

  • Degenerative Disc Disease

Individualized Treatment Plans

Our multidisciplinary care teams may include orthopedists and sports medicine physicians, but also primary care physicians, radiologists, nurses, physical and occupational therapists and other providers. Together, we will design a step-by-step treatment plan based on your unique care needs. Those steps may include:

Activity Modification: In some cases, resting the affected area and allowing it to repair on its own is the only care needed.

Assistive devices: A brace, orthotic, sling, cane or other assistive device can allow the injury to repair.

Steroid injections: A program of injections, which may include a combination of numbing injections, could be utilized to relieve pain and improve function. These injections may also help our team decide if your condition requires stronger therapies.

Advanced Minimally Invasive Treatments

Together, we may choose to pursue a minimally invasive procedure to reduce your joint discomfort or improve your mobility. Our highly trained and skilled physicians are experienced in a wide variety of these treatments that can be performed. These treatments include:

Percutaneous tenotomy: This treatment uses ultrasound guidance to identify diseased, pain-generating tendon tissue and employs a tiny needle moving at ultrasonic speed to remove it. Sodium hyaluronate injections: This is a treatment to simulate the fluid that surrounds the joint. These injections can relieve pain caused by arthritis of the knee. Non-Surgical Treatment Options to treat the musculoskeletal system (which includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles) can be used to help relieve:

    “Most pleasant”

    My experience at this facility was honestly the most pleasant. After going through different doctors and chiropractors, Dr. Raval and his staff were able to get me back on my feet in just a few treatments. They’re very kind and easy to work with, I was able to make a last minute visit with the doctor, and the hours were convenient. As a patient, I am fully satisfied with my experience at this office.
