Patients on the North Shore have always had access to world-class orthopedic surgeons dedicated to high quality patient care along with innovative surgical techniques at Coastal Orthopedics. We are pleased to welcome our new physician, Jeffrey Touma, D.O. to our practice. Dr. Touma is a board-eligible and fellowship trained physical medicine and rehabilitation physician specializing in Interventional Pain Management, Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and Regenerative Medicine.

Dr. Touma utilizes a multidisciplinary approach for each patient that can consist of, but are not limited to, physical therapy, non-opioid oral and topical medications, as well as minimally invasive interventional procedures. These procedures are all done on an outpatient basis and patients go home the same day. Many of these procedures utilize live x-ray (fluoroscopy) or ultrasound to identify the problem area with precision.
Some common conditions that are treated include osteoarthritis (primarily of the spine, shoulders, hips and knees), lumbar radiculopathy (sciatica pain), cervical radiculopathy, tendonitis, sacroiliac joint pain, greater trochanteric bursitis, rotator cuff impingement syndrome, and other soft tissue injuries.
