The technology is now in place for us to see and evaluate all patients regardless of insurance inclusive of workers compensation patients on our telemedicine platform. Stem cell consultations, all work injuries, all sports injuries can be initially evaluated and follow ups seen by telemedicine if patients cannot come to the office for any reason either in Santa Barbara or Bakersfield. For work related injuries it is imperative to have periodic evaluations to maintain disability and future medical benefits.

Spine surgery can relieve pain and correct injury to the nerves in the back when non-invasive methods are ineffective or inappropriate.


Scientists and medical doctors have made tremendous advances to make tissue regeneration a reality in treating many diseases.


Sometimes the best way to relieve pain and restore function to a joint is to replace all or part of it with a prosthesis (an artificial joint).


During an arthroscopic procedure, a device known as an arthroscope is inserted into a small incision in the knee allowing the doctor to examine tissues inside the knee.


Severe shoulder conditions with persistent symptoms that have not responded well to conservative treatments may benefit from shoulder replacement surgery.


Sports medicine is a subspecialty of orthopedics that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries suffered during athletic activity.
