The Mocek Spine Clinic makes a bold move this year to the use of only low dose opiates for pain relief!

Doctor Mocek received advanced medical training for the treatment of invasive cancer pain while he was @ the Johns Hopkins Hospital as a fellow. In conjunction with CARTI, he is now using this training to help cancer patients have less pain & a better quality of life!

The Mocek Spine Clinic Family Day Summer 2018 is now in the record books after lots of water slides & roller coasters!

The long-term goal is to reduce the number of prescriptions in the state and these adopted guidelines will give doctors a clear picture of what is an appropriate amount to prescribe.

For opiod prescribing safety our clinic will gradually lower to a maximum of 50 morphine equivalent dose per day by the end of this calendar year.

We offer optional nitrous oxide sedation with pure oxygen for all of your spine procedures @ our clinic!
