He performs procedures such as noninvasive interventional spine (cervical, thoracic, lumbosacral) procedures under fluoroscopic (x-ray) guidance, noninvasive interventional joint and tendon procedures under fluoroscopic or ultrasound guidance, platelet-rich Plasma injections, as well as soft tissue and trigger point injections.
