FREDERICK, Md., July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- American Spine Center has opened a new, state of the art, spine treatment facility in Frederick, MD, at 1050 Key Parkway. The extensive team of physicians providing care at this facility includes five Board Certified Pain Management physicians; Dr. Sandeep Sherlekar, Dr. Atif Malik, Dr. David Rodriguez, Dr. PK Grewal and Dr. Rickey Kim; an Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, Dr. Said Osman; and two Neurosurgeon's, Dr. Charles Winters and Dr. Malini Naryanan. Patients suffering from a broad spectrum of pain conditions, especially disorders of the spine, have access to the best, most current treatment options including "key hole" surgery. "This procedure can be done with a one centimeter incision to remove a disc herniation using an endoscope," Dr. Malik explains. Pain Management has evolved into a highly specialized area of medicine. "It no longer takes one type of physician to treat pain. It takes an army of highly trained physicians, with a focus on different specialties, to really do the job right and provide the best overall patient care," says Dr. Sherlekar. By pinpointing the exact source of pain, the treatment can be administered by the appropriate physician. The results for patients can be life-altering as they are able to resume their normal activities with little, if any, recovery time.
The new Frederick location provides patients with a brand new ambulatory surgery center that has the latest minimally invasive surgical equipment to perform out-patient procedures.
American Spine Center has been established in Frederick, Maryland since 2003. The previous location, 141 Thomas Johnson Drive, is still open for patient visits and minimal procedures. The new Frederick location, 1050 Key Parkway, was selected for its convenience for patients and for providing pleasant and professional medical surroundings.
