  1. 1. Q: What is High Power Laser Therapy (HPLT)? A: HPLT is a medical procedure that uses highly focused laser light energy to treat pain and inflammation. It works at the cellular level by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. It works equally as well, whether the injury is acute or chronic. Q: Is it safe? A: Since the company received FDA Clearance in 2003, over a million patient treatments have been performed and there has never been a reported side effect. The Avicenna laser can be found in every medical discipline including prestigious medical schools. It is frequently used to treat professional athletes in the NFL, NBA and MLB. Q: Is the treatment painful? A: No, actually it is quiet comfortable and soothing. Only a feeling of deep warming and pain relieve is felt during the treatment. Q: Why shall I come to Avicenna? A: The Avicenna Laser Center of Excellence in West Palm Beach is the Training headquarters for Avicenna Laser Technology, Inc., the company who invented the technology. Every physician in America using its laser technology will have received training by Dr. Joseph Costello, Chief of Clinical Services for Avicenna and the chief physician at the Center of Excellence you are seeking treatment at. Q: Why is Avicenna HPLT better than traditional types of medicine? A: First unlike in traditional medicine, we try to identify the reason why your condi tion developed in the first place. Many times when dealing from conditions from the low back to the feet, they are gait and biomechanically related. Once we identify these issues we then try to correct the biomechanical cause for your pain. This is typically done with a custom Orthotic. Once an optimal environ ment for tissue healing is achieved, the laser will be able to reduce your inflam mation and heal your injury on a long term if not permanent basis. Q: How many treatments does it typically take to see maximum improvement? A: Most conditions require between 6 and 15 sessions to achieve a maximum therapeutic result from HPLT. For long standing severe chronic 10-15 sessions are indicated. Q: Why doesn’t my insurance cover this? A: Because the High Power Laser Therapy (HPLT) does not have it’s own distinct CPT code. It is not yet recognized by most insurance payers including Medicare Q: Will I need to continue treatments indefinitely? A: No, our goal at Avicenna is to try and correct biomechanical abnormalities and then encourage healing by your body thru High Power Laser Therapy. Our results are therefore better and long term, all without side effects! Frequently Asked Questions Clinic Overview and Introduction to High Power Laser Therapy The Avicenna Laser Therapy Enter of Excellence in West Palm Beach, Florida is the parent corporation’s (Avicenna Laser Technology’s) flagship patient treatment center.

  4. 4. 1-561-882-1430 www.avicennalaserpbc.com High Power Laser Therapy A Revolutionary Advancement in Pain Management Jim C: After slipping a disc as a result of a golfing injury and seeking conventional therapy with chiropractors, osteopaths and sports medicine doctors, I still had no relief from the pain I was experiencing. My next visit was to a back surgeon and you know what he wanted to do---I wasn’t even in his office for more than 5 minutes and he wanted to schedule me for surgery. I had nowhere to turn until a friend of mine recommended Dr. Costello. Dr. Costello was the first physician I saw who actually gave me a complete physical exam. After only a few treatments I started to experience the pain relief I had been seeking for weeks, all without drugs, surgery or dangerous pills. If Dr. Costello can do it for me, he can do it for you. Jim Palmer: Hall of Fame Baseball Pitcher For someone that enjoys golfing, biking, tennis, weight lifting and even gardening that just turned 61 it was great to find a modality that met my needs. Not only does the laser help me remain active it has improved my quality of life. After a baseball career of over 20 years and being very athletic during the off season and even after retirement, the hands of time begin to catch up to you. Wrist pain, knee pain and even back pain where just a few of the many aches and pains I had been experiencing. A place like Avicenna was just what I needed. The laser is pain free and in just a few treatments you get the pain relief you need. Michelle O: I had been experiencing back pain issues my entire life and have been in and out of different chiropractors and doctors offices without any success. Last summer I hurt my back scuba diving and while I was in a physical therapy I heard a commercial for Dr. Costello and the Avicenna Laser Therapy Center of the Palm Beaches. He was the very first doctor to actually measure my legs and check my gait. After building custom orthotics for my feet and having couple of months of laser treatments, I have no more pain, no more numbness radiating down my leg and I’ve been healed. Mike H: I had been suffering with pain due to neuropathy for more than 2 years. I tried a variety of medications and procedures from different doctors, but the pain continued and I could not walk without the use of a cane to get around. One day a neighbor of mine told me about the amazing progress he was making with a new FDA cleared laser treatment from Avicenna. After just a few treatments I was able to walk without a cane. When the treatment regime was finished I was totally free of symptoms. I was completely amazed at the results and went on to recommend it to many of my friends and residents in my development who also were suffering from neuropathy. Talia D: I work as a pastry chef and for years I always had numbness and pain in my right hand. It was extremely difficult to do the ordinary every day functions such as brushing my hair, eating, and to do my work without pain. After hearing about the Avicenna Laser Therapy Center of Excellence on a radio ad I decided to give it a try. Dr. Costello did a comprehensive examination of my condition and after diagnosing me with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome he began to treat me with the laser. After only three weeks the pain and numbness were gone. What I liked most was the treatments were pain free and I was did not have to take any dangerous drugs to manage my pain. It was a great feeling.
