Gateway Medical Group Medical Care
Epidural, Facet Injection, Nerve Block
It is not uncommon to experience pain after an accident that may require an epidural, facet injection or nerve block procedure. These procedures interrupt signals traveling along a nerve to relieve the pain in a specific area for the patient. Gateway Medical has physicians that are Board Certified in Pain Medicine and Anesthesiology that will perform epidural, facet injection or nerve block procedures if necessary. These localized injections are directed to the source of the patient’s pain and oftentimes will give instant, as well as long-term pain relief.
At Gateway Medical, we use neurodiagnostic testing to analyze the nervous system, and how it’s functioning after an accident. A variety and techniques and instruments are used by neurological specialists during the neurodiagnostic testing to record the electrical activity of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves.
In many cases, orthopedic extremity surgery is required to get our patients back to a normal living condition in regard to their health and well-being. Our orthopedic surgeon will evaluate and document injuries to a patient’s extremity or extremities and determine whether surgery is necessary.
Imaging with Affiliates
Gateway Medical often outsources services for imaging including, but not limited to, MRI’s, CT Scans, and x-rays. Imaging with affiliates offers a convenient location for you with little to no out-of-pocket expenses. We setup the imaging with affiliates to ensure that your care and treatment are uninterrupted and that you do not have the worry of out of pocket payments during your recovery. If you have any questions or concerns about our imaging with affiliates, contact your physician.
At Gateway Medical, we understand how important it is for your doctor to receive quick medical reports during your care. Soon, we will have all patient files in an electronic medical record format so that your medical records are instantaneously available to your doctor. As usual, your privacy is very important to us in our quick medical reports system.
After an accident, some patients may require plastic and reconstructive surgery to improve functions and also to approximate a normal appearance. Our plastic and reconstructive surgeons are Board Certified in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. We work with your attorney to make sure that your plastic and reconstructive surgery is covered either through insurance or your case.
Gateway Medical Group has been working closely with the Tennessee community for over a decade. We pride ourselves on our patient-focused team of doctors that specialize in treating those who have been injured. At the core of Gateway Medical Group, we believe that insurance should not be a determining reason as to why a person may or may not receive quality medical care. That’s why we have built our clinic around providing all services on a lien.
