Sports Medicine Procedures

Atchison Hospital is proud to have many doctors performing the latest procedures.

Tendon Pain Relief Procedure: Dr. Pam Rizza, who practices sports medicine at Atchison Hospital, helps patients suffering from chronic tendon pain using an innovative procedure known as percutaneous needle tenotomy (PNT). This minimally invasive procedure removes scar tissue on the tendon and promotes healing, allowing patients to get back to living their lives with significantly less pain in a short amount of time.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a highly-effective, non-operative treatment that utilizes the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The treatment involves using concentrated injections of the patient’s own platelets to promote faster healing of damaged tissue in tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints.
