It is our mission to improve the quality of life for people with chronic pain and disorders of the spine. We are nationally recognized as a center of excellence and offer the latest techniques and therapies to bring you back to optimum health.
Whether your treatment is medical or surgical, simple or complex, the Meridian team takes a scientific approach to uncover the underlying source of your pain and then applies the most effective treatment available to resolve it.
When pain persists in any part of the body for more than a few months, it is considered chronic and needs to be addressed. Sources of chronic pain however are often illusive, complex, and require treatment from a fellowship trained pain specialist.
Your Meridian Physician will explore non-surgical treatments first. These treatments may include medication, bracing, muscle stimulation or physical therapy. For some problems however, intervention is the only possible solution.
By using the latest in minimally invasive techniques there is less postoperative pain and a faster recovery.
Is it the people who make Medicenter what it is and we are extremely proud of the achievements of our
staff. We all work together to help our patients through recovery, providing the best possible care.
One of the first fellowship trained interventional pain management physicians in the US. After completing his training at the Baylor College of Medicine, he remained as an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Anesthesia and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Dr. DeMeo has trained numerous physicians, lectures nationally, been awarded many research grants, published numerous papers, and continues to conduct leading edge research in the field of spinal surgery.
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.
