LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Five top Louisville medical specialists teamed up to bring an innovative, drug-free approach to pain relief to the area. OrthoLazer Louisville, the first of its kind in Kentuckiana, is now open at 3600 Springhurst Blvd., Suite 3604, and offers relief for those suffering from acute and chronic diagnoses such as sports injuries, arthritis, surgical recovery, nerve pain, soft tissue injuries and anyone who suffers from musculoskeletal pain.
OrthoLazer Louisville partners include two top knee/hip orthopedic surgery specialists, Dr. Joseph W. Greene and Dr. Jonathan Yerasamides; a celebrated shoulder orthopedic surgery specialist, Dr. Ryan J. Krupp; a prominent anesthesiologist/pain management specialist, S. Kyle Young; and one of the only neuromusculoskeletal specialists in the city, Mark Conliffe, DO.
“OrthoLazer Centers have exclusive use of the MLS M8 Robotic Laser – the most advanced orthopedic therapy laser on the market,” said OrthoLazer Louisville partner, Dr. Ryan Krupp. “It is FDA-cleared to treat pain and inflammation, non-invasive, and most important, completely safe. It works by using specific wavelengths of light to enter damaged cells and stimulate intracellular activity. This turns off the inflammatory process, which for the patient means reduced pain in the area, a faster recovery time, and improved function. Our team is immensely proud to bring this to our community. We’re committed to decreasing pain for patients and improving quality of life.”
The treatments are painless, free of side effects and do not create heat energy. Treatment time is 6-9 minutes, and most patients experience results after 6-12 treatments, though some in fewer.
“Laser therapy has been around since the 1960s, but there have been great advancements of late. Last year, the CDC included the benefit of laser therapy as a possible alternative to opioids, and in 2021 laser was among the recommendations for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee joint by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS). However, this is not just academic − OrthoLazer outcomes are real. There is an 86% patient satisfaction rate at OrthoLazer Centers,” said OrthoLazer Louisville partner, Dr. Joseph Greene.
OrthoLazer Centers was founded in 2019 by Massachusetts orthopedic surgeon Dr. Scott Sigman. A specialist in sports medicine and the former Chief of Orthopedics at Lowell General Hospital, Dr. Sigman was appointed by former Governor Charlie Baker to serve on an Opioid Special Commission. Headquartered in Rochester, New York, OrthoLazer Centers have 17 U.S. locations with 20 more in development.
The partners in OrthoLazer Louisville are excited to offer this cutting-edge technology to patients in a spa-like environment. Patient profiles range from post-op, non-op, chronic pain, or simply the weekend warrior athlete.
