RestorePDX is leading a revolution in patient-centered spine and joint care—rooted in the principles of collaborative medicine and driven by innovative diagnostic and therapeutic technologies. Through a unique, interdisciplinary, outcomes-driven approach, we deliver the most innovative, effective non-surgical solutions in our industry and provide an unparalleled level of care.
Before a successful Orthobiologic procedure can be performed, the treatment team must first have an accurate understanding of what is happening with their patient. This requires a Precision Diagnosis; we believe that a physician should never start offering or suggesting treatments without first diagnosing your issue, and clearly communicating it to you.
If an orthobiologic procedure is right for you, the next thing we have to do is ensure that the treatment we provide is the right one for you. At RestorePDX, we stay abreast of the developments in the field and are constantly reevaluating our treatment protocols to ensure we are using the best supplies in the most efficient way for our patients.
At RestorePDX, we use advanced imaging techniques, including ultrasound imaging and fluoroscopy, to inject our patients’ orthobiologic payload exactly where it is needed for maximum efficacy. Precision Delivery takes time, care, patience, planning, and expertise, a commitment RestorePDX makes to each and every one of its patients.
Committed to delivering the best possible outcomes for our patients, we bring together the worlds of Interventional and Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Radiology, Interventional Pain Management, Sports Medicine, and Regenerative Medicine.
We’ve developed a highly integrated approach that customizes care across disciplines while embracing minimally and non-invasive techniques.
