 Our physicians hold staff privileges at a number of local hospitals, and work closely with a team of Physical Therapists, Psychologists, and Medical Specialists to develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient.

At Meridian, we take pride in working as a team to achieve the best possible outcome for our patients. We insure that our treatments are well suited to our patients’ diagnosis, life style, and treatment goals.

If intervention is recommended, we only perform them at a fully accredited ambulatory surgical center and hospital. To insure the best outcome, most interventions will be performed under fluoroscopic guidance and monitored anesthesia.
