Kessel joins ONS, brings more non-surgical treatment options

Interventional physiatrist Tamar Kessel, MD has joined Orthopaedic and Neurosurgery Specialists, PC (ONS) and is now seeing patients at the office at 6 Greenwich Office Park, 40 Valley Drive ll.

Dr. Kessel’s expertise includes non-operative treatments for musculoskeletal injuries such as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), viscosupplementation and steroidal medications.

Physiatrists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment for the musculoskeletal system; muscles, bones, nerves, ligaments, tendons and other structures, or disorders that cause pain and/or difficulty with functioning. Interventional physiatrists treat pain using anti-inflammatory injections into the spine and pelvis guided by a specially equipped x-ray.

At ONS, Dr. Kessel will perform standard physiatry procedures as well as ultrasound-guided therapeutic injections to precisely target medications to the site of tissue damage.

This method of administering injections has been shown to be safer and to improve treatment results for some injections.

Dr. Kessel will also give fluoroscopic-guided spinal injections, do general sports medicine procedures and will perform Electromyography/Nerve Conduction Studies (EMG/NCV testing).

“Dr. Kessel makes a great addition to our practice,” said orthopedic surgeon Dr. John Crowe, who helped found the group of 19 doctors more than 13 years ago.

“Her background and research enhances our non-surgical options for resolving issues related to sports injury or the normal aging process.”

Dr. Kessel’s research has been extensively published and she has earned many awards for excellence in her field.

She has given numerous scientific presentations at leading universities, hospitals and national conferences.

On Thursday, Oct. 25 at 6:30 p.m., Dr. Kessel will present a talk in the Nobel Conference Center at Greenwich Hospital titled Ultrasound Guided Injections — Targeting Pain with Precision. Dr. Kessel will discuss how the use of ultrasound high-resolution images of tendons, ligaments, muscles, and nerves has improved the accuracy and the results of some therapeutic injections.
