RESEARCH

Our research is inspired by our patients, and our mission is to better understand diseases and develop new treatments. The Napa Medical Research Foundation (NMRF) generously supported our research projects between 2014 and 2022, leading to multiple presentations at national meetings and publications. Our most recent publication, “Ultrasound-Guided Cervical Facet Injections” is among the top 10 downloads for Spine Journal as of June 2022. We are working on papers on ultrasound-guided carpal tunnel release and Sever’s disease. We are following outcomes in patients treated with bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) for ACL disruptions, ultrasonic aspiration and debridement for vaccination-related shoulder dysfunction (SIRVA), and planning to do a double-blind randomized controlled trial of PRP for cervical facet joint pain caused by whiplash injury.
