Our mission is to help you find freedom from pain without invasive surgery or pain medications.
Welcome to Dr. James Webb & Associates. Dr. Webb's goal is to help patients optimize their bone health and find freedom from pain. Dr. Webb is a musculoskeletal radiologist who specializes in osteoporosis and interventional pain management. Our goal is to help patients return to their normal activity while avoiding invasive surgery and pain medications.
I started my practice as a clinical radiologist in 2006 to fill a gap for osteoporosis patients who had vertebral fractures. As a fellow at the University of Oklahoma, I learned to perform kyphoplasty, a safe and effective procedure to fix the pain from a symptomatic vertebral compression fracture. Amazing results - about a 95% success rate in the literature.
However, I quickly saw a problem. These patients would get their fractures fixed, but no one was treating the underlying osteoporosis that was actually causing these fractures. So we would fix the pain with kyphoplasty, but the patients kept getting more fractures.
So in 2006, I left the hospital based group and started what would be the first comprehensive clinic treating vertebral fractures and the underyling osteoporosis that causes them. Along the way, I've been lucky to become one of the most experienced practitioners in the nation in kyphoplasty. Yes, we do treat painful vertebral fractures, but we also treat the underlying medical problems that affect bone health. That's actually more important as it reduces our patients' risk of getting fractures in the future.
As we have grown, we have added to our staff, but our mission remains the same: help patients find freedom from pain while avoiding surgery and pain medications.
