Please be aware that we are not one of those so called “pain clinic”! We treat the different musculoskeletal, orthopedic and spine conditions without pain medications. Having worked for the Florida Department of Health as an expert witness for the prosecution services unit reviewing pill mills type of operations, and being very aware of the addiction problem we have in our country, Dr. Dieguez rarely if ever prescribes narcotics and other controlled addictive medications. If he ever does, it is only if absolutely necessary after a minor surgical procedure and never for longer than five days.With that been said, if what you are looking for are narcotics or other controlled substances, don’t expect to get them in this office. Don't waste my time or yours.Or your money for that matter! This is not one of those places where you go and you exchange dollars for drugs. Here you will go out empty handed. And remember, we will not hesitate in reporting drug seekers to the authorities. We do not prescribe Marijuana or any of its derivatives either!
Dr. Dieguez as the innovator that he is, and using his background and expertise in anesthesia, interventional orthobiologic medicine, precision guided injection techniques and surgery, has brought to St. Augustine the most advanced and up to date techniques for the treatment of musculoskeletal orthopedic conditions, spine conditions and sport injuries using when indicated the most natural ingredients and minimally invasive techniques. We use orthobiologics, proliferative therapy and other conventional precision guided injections with nanogram doses of steroids. Additionally we also provide medical acupuncture.
“Orthobiologic Therapies”, refers to the use of biological substances to help musculoskeletal injuries heal quicker. They are used to improve the healing of fractured bones and injured muscles, tendons and ligaments and are derived from substances that are naturally found in your own body.
Even thou all orthobiologic therapies we use are all related, I will describe each separately under a different tab so as to give you a better idea of what each entails. They all fall under the heading of Orthobiologic Medicine because their purpose promote healing of damaged or injured tissues. Among the orthobiologic substances uses in our office we have MSC Therapies, and Plasma therapies. I will describe each one separately.
