We use Reclast infusion to help prevent or treat osteoporosis or Paget's disease. Unlike common medicines that you take orally, Reclast bypasses your stomach via an infusion directly into the bloodstream.
Prolia is indicated for the treatment of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis at high risk for fracture, defined as a history of osteoporotic fracture, or multiple risk factors for fracture; or patients who have failed or are intolerant to other available osteoporosis therapy.
An epidural steroid injection may be tried when other nonsurgical treatments have failed to relieve severe back or leg pain.
At this time, Medicare does not cover the type of epidurals we do at Medicine Lodge Memorial Hospital.
Other Outpatient Services
Certain services ordered by local providers such as dressing changes, antibiotic treatments, IV fluids, etc., can be provided on weekends or after-hours.
