HIGH-TECH PAIN MANAGEMENT
As part of Dr. Bitan’s high-touch approach to reducing back pain through spine surgery, he and his team take every step to make every patient’s experience as comfortable and seamless as possible. Patients can receive pain management injections—performed by Dr. Bitan himself, never a physician’s assistant—without waiting or the need to travel to other physicians’ offices.
Manhattan Orthopedics has a state-of-the-art, certified procedure room, where Dr. Bitan personally administers pain management injections with the guidance of a fluoroscopy machine. Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that uses X-rays to obtain real-time moving images of a patient’s spine, allowing Dr. Bitan to see the precise cause and location of pain, and insert the medication in the exact location to bring optimal relief to the patient. He uses this tool for both diagnosis and therapy. This precision approach to back pain diagnosis and treatment leads to outstanding surgical outcomes for patients.
