What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine providers specialize in diagnosing and treating the full range of health conditions affecting adults. The board-certified providers at L&D Medical Center also focus on preventive health care, chronic disease, and pain management.

As an internal medicine specialist, your provider at L&D Medical Center serves as your primary care physician (PCP). Your PCP is the person you call anytime you need help, whether you wake up feeling sick, need a routine exam, or suffer a minor injury.

Your PCP also coordinates with specialists, ensuring a team-based approach that provides optimal health care.

What specialized services do internal medicine providers offer?

L&D Medical Center offers far more specialized services than are provided by most internal medicine practices. Here are two examples:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections

PRP consists of components isolated from a sample of your own blood: plasma (the liquid part of your blood) and platelets (cells found in your blood). Your provider uses a centrifuge to separate platelets and plasma, and then draws them into a needle for your PRP injection.

When platelets reach injured tissues (whether naturally through your bloodstream or through an injection in the office), they immediately release growth factors. Growth factors then trigger cellular activities essential for healing, like building new tissues and reducing inflammation.

Interventional treatments

Interventional treatments available at L&D Medical Center include injections and specialized procedures that target the nerves and joints responsible for pain. Using real-time X-rays to guide the injection, your provider precisely injects corticosteroids or a local anesthetic.

They also use needles to deliver radiofrequency energy to a single nerve. This creates a wound that blocks pain signals for an extended time. 

Implanting a spinal cord stimulator is another example of a specialized procedure offered by L&D Medical Center. The stimulator uses mild electrical impulses to stop pain signals from reaching your brain.

If you need an internal medicine specialist or primary care provider, call L&D Medical Center or book an appointment online today.
