If you’ve been injured in a car accident, it’s probable that one of the last things you want to hear is that you need surgical treatment. Sometimes, it is the only option, and you should always listen to a qualified medical professional when they give you advice. However, Dr. Kenny Hanna MD FACS of Pledge Medical wants you to know that surgery isn’t always the only treatment option.
We sat down with Dr. Hanna to conduct a Doctors on Liens’s Quick Tip Video. In this video, Dr. Hanna explained that he is now using conservative treatment of soft tissue injuries and leaving surgical treatment as a last-ditch option.
Dr. Hanna uses platelet-rich plasma (plasma injections) to treat injuries that otherwise require surgical intervention. In other words, these plasma injections have been helping his patients find comfort, reach better functionality, and avoid having to have a surgical procedure.
This makes sense to us, as the time following a car accident can be very stressful. And getting a surgical procedure can be one of the most stressful times in your life. Having to deal with both and going into surgery as a result of a car accident is never an easy, stress-free option. So, knowing that there could be other alternatives is extremely helpful. Stay tuned for more quick tip videos from Doctors on Liens doctors.
