The pain from a spinal or orthopedic injury can have a profound effect on your quality of life and your ability to perform simple tasks. Dr. Jason M Cuellar, a leading Beverly Hills orthopaedic surgeon, can change all that for the better. He is a trusted, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon who provides compassionate treatment to all of his patients. He focuses on total disc replacement (artificial disc replacement) and minimally invasive spine surgery. His practice includes treatment of various disorders of the spine such as cervical disc herniation, cervical radiculopathy, cervical myelopathy, neck pain, cervical stenosis, cervical disc degeneration, lumbar disc herniation, lumbar radiculopathy, lumbar stenosis, lumbar degenerative disc disease, and low back pain. He is also a leading advocate and innovator for regenerative medicine.
In addition to spinal surgery, Dr. Cuéllar specializes in anti-inflammatory injections for a variety of spine and orthopedic conditions. This Beverly Hills orthopedic surgeon is one of the founding researchers at Cytonics Corp. involved in developing novel treatments with anti-inflammatory supermolecule, alpha-2-macroglobulin (A2M), currently approved for use by the FDA using APIC. This is a process that he helped develop whereby we draw some of your own blood and concentrate a powerful anti-inflammatory protein (A2M), along with other potentially helpful molecules. This solution is then injected into the painful site. Alpha-2-macroglobulin is a protease inhibitor and is one of the largest plasma proteins. It transports hormones and enzymes, exhibits effector and inhibitor functions in the development of the lymphatic system, and inhibits components of the complement system and hemostasis system. Numerous scientific research studies have demonstrated it may reduce pain by blocking inflammation, and may even slow down cartilage degradation in large joints such as the knee. Recent research published by Drs. Cuéllar, Montesano and Scuderi shows that injection of the super molecule A2M (APIC) may be beneficial for the treatment of back pain from lumbar disc degeneration.
Dr. Cuéllar, your Beverly Hills orthopedic surgeon, understands the importance of non-operative treatments when appropriate, and tailoring care to each individual patient’s needs and goals. Dr. Cuéllar will take the time you need to discuss all options available and explain recommendations in detail using diagrams, spine models and video as needed. He understands how difficult it is for a patient to have surgery (having undergone two himself) and he therefore recommends surgery only as a last resort when non-operative treatments have failed. His compassionate staff will work with you to determine your best treatment options to restore optimum function and freedom from pain. Call for an appointment today.
