We do this by helping our patients optimize bone health and treating the underlying conditions that cause pain. Dr. James Webb & Associates has helped thousands of patients restore mobility to live stronger and healthier lives.
Dr. James Webb, M.D.
Dr. James Webb is a musculoskeletal radiologist who specializes in osteoporosis treatment and interventional pain management in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Dr. Webb started his practice as a clinical radiologist to fill a gap for osteoporosis patients who suffered from vertebral compression fractures. As a fellow at the University of Oklahoma, he was trained to perform kyphoplasty, a safe and effective procedure to fix pain from symptomatic vertebral fractures.
After seeing a near perfect success rate in bone repair and pain reduction with this procedure, he quickly saw a problem. Patients would get their fractures fixed, but the underlying causes for osteoporosis were not being treated.
In 2006, Dr. Webb started what would be the first comprehensive clinic treating vertebral compression fractures and the underlying condition of osteoporosis that causes these fractures. Dr. James Webb & Associates is focused on pain intervention and supporting long-term bone health to reduce patients’ risk for getting fractures in the future.
Dr. James Webb is a Board Certified Radiologist as well as a Clinical Instructor at the OU College of Medicine.

Non-Surgical Pain Relief
Our Unique Approach
We do the best for our patients by following the basic principles that we were taught in medical school. Primarily, that the key to diagnosis is in the history and physical examination. The answer for the cause of a patient’s problem almost always lies in what the patient tells the doctor and what the doctor finds when the examine the patient’s body. By following these principles, we are often able to find the source of pain, even when others have not.
After that, we employ a systematic approach based on the scientific method, identifying and treating individual components of the patient’s pain. Most spine specialists focus on the intervertebral disc, presuming that a torn, bulging or herniated disc is the main source of the patient’s symptoms. For the patient we see, the pain is usually caused by multiple problems including the facet joints, the vertebral bodies, posterior elements, sacroiliac joints, muscles and other soft tissues in addition to the disc. We don’t just treat the disc, we treat the patient.
We believe that treating a patient should start with arriving at a diagnosis. This involves analyzing all the available data from the history, the exam, imaging studies and synthesizing it into a cohesive, logical explanation for the patient’s problem. Once a rational diagnosis is made, treatment can begin.
Many times, a patient may go to a specialist who asks the question is “Does this patient need spine surgery?” What we try to do is get to the root cause of the patient’s pain and find out what is wrong with them – not to focus whether or not they are a candidate for a particular procedure. Back pain is a leading cause of disability. Back surgery takes months to recover from, leaves a huge scar and metal in your back. We generally see the patients that surgery didn’t help.
