I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Dr. Robert Scott Jr. for medical treatment. Dr. Scott is a caring professional who always takes the time to explain to me, the nature of my problems and my treatment options. Any questions or concerns that I have, are promptly addressed. He has treated me for different issues and when necessary, has coordinated treatment with other health care professionals. I feel that I am receiving the best possible care. Re his staff: they are always very professional, courteous, helpful, and friendly.

I am so thankful for Dr. Scott and his kind staff. They went out of their way to get a procedure authorized for me as quickly as possible even though I knew it was a long shot! I would recommend Dr. Scott to anyone in pain seeking increased mobility through non-surgical measures.

Radiofrequency ablation procedures provide the most long-lasting treatment available for chronic spinal joint pain. Once the painful joint or joints is/are identified with diagnostic medial branch blocks (see above), then the physician, using X-ray guidance and an equipped needle, is able to create a very small radiofrequency lesion on the pain nerve to the joint(s). This procedure typically takes less than 5 minutes per joint, is completed with local anesthesia, and the benefit lasts 9 months to 2 years.
