LOC is proud to introduce the regions only orthopedic spine and pain clinic, The Center for Orthopaedic Spine + Pain (COSP). We welcome Dr. Aaron Compton to our practice as a board certified, fellowship trained interventional pain specialist. Combined with the expertise of our orthopedic specialists, we are now able to offer truly comprehensive care for all your musculoskeletal needs. Dr. Compton compliments our current services providing non-operative care of orthopedic pain.
Venu Vemuri, DO, Spine Specialist, came up with the vision for the COSP after realizing a need for streamlined, continuity of care, for patients seeking relief via surgical and non-surgical treatment options. As a traditional orthopedic practice, our physicians regularly encounter patients wishing to avoid surgery or delay surgery for a multitude of reasons. In some instances, combining surgical and non-surgical interventions is the most appropriate option. By bringing on experienced Pain Management Specialist, Aaron Compton, MD, we’re able to present all available treatment options. Armed with this information, the patient and provider can come up with a plan that best suits their needs and lifestyle.
Communication, comfort, and convenience are key factors in the success of a patient’s journey in finding relief. By opening the COSP, we’re able to maintain a direct line of communication and access to patient records allowing our specialists to work with one another to develop a customized treatment approach. More than ever, our orthopedists are confident in the care their patients receive having hand-picked a Pain Management Specialist whose abilities and care philosophy line up with that of LOC. Having the ability to review and discuss imaging prior to and following epidurals, joint injections, nerve blocks, etc., allows for more precision, as well as aiding in the direction for any follow-up care. Greater precision and communication leads to superior outcomes.
We wanted to create a space in which not only the design, but the equipment and technology are on the leading edge of what’s available today. Patients can expect a modern yet comfortable environment in which to receive their care. Each treatment room is equipped with touch screens displaying anatomical illustrations. These interactive visual displays allow for a deeper understanding of the condition and treatments being discussed. This educational tool helps the patient make a more confident and informed decision regarding their treatment.
Drs. Vemuri and Compton have worked with one another for several years and are excited to continue working together in this new facility. Their goal is to provide the latest treatments available, conservative and surgical, helping patients to achieve a pain free life while reducing the reliance on narcotic pain medication.
