About Our Practice

Dr. Whyte is a fellowship trained interventional spine physician specializing in the treatment of painful spinal and extremity disorders. All state of the art and standard spinal procedures as well as EMG and nerve conduction studies are performed in our facility. In addition, palliative as well as spinal corrective procedures are performed in patients who are not candidates for surgery or who are looking for non-surgical alternatives. Some of the procedures performed include cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine diagnostic nerve and joint injections, therapeutic spinal injections such as transforaminal; epidurals, selective nerve root blocks, facet, sacroiliac joint, hip joint and piriformis injections. For patients suffering from pain emanating from a facial or trigeminal nerve [shingles] therapeutic injection procedures are performed to decrease the painful symptomotology. Dr. Whyte was the first in the region to perform the disc corrective procedures of Nucleoplasty and Dekompressor for those suffering neck, back, arm and leg pain from a herniated disc. Other intradiscal back procedures are also performed for those suffering from back pain. These focused treatments allow patients to use minimal narcotics, which often impairs one’s ability to function effectively, and to return to previously enjoyed activities.
