Degenerative Disorders

At Eastside Family Health Center in Kirkland, WA, we understand the significant impact that degenerative disorders can have on an individual's quality of life. Frank Marinkovich, MD and his team specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of degenerative disorders. Through innovative approaches, advanced therapies, and compassionate care, we are committed to empowering our patients and providing them with the support they need to live fulfilling lives.


Understanding Degenerative Disorders

Degenerative disorders are conditions characterized by the gradual deterioration of tissues, organs, or systems in the body. These disorders often result from the aging process, genetic predispositions, or environmental factors. While the progression of degenerative disorders can vary, they generally lead to a decline in bodily functions and can significantly impact mobility, cognition, and overall well-being.


Comprehensive Diagnosis and Personalized Treatment

At Eastside Family Health Center, we take a comprehensive and individualized approach to diagnosing and treating degenerative disorders. Our team of experienced physicians, specialists, and therapists work collaboratively to conduct a thorough evaluation, including medical history, physical examinations, and advanced diagnostic tests. This detailed assessment allows us to accurately diagnose the specific degenerative disorder and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to each patient's unique needs.


Advanced Therapies and Interventions

We employ a range of cutting-edge therapies and interventions to effectively manage degenerative disorders and slow down their progression. Our clinic stays at the forefront of medical advancements, incorporating evidence-based treatments that have shown promising results. Some of the innovative approaches we offer include:

  • Regenerative Medicine: Utilizing the body's natural healing capabilities, regenerative medicine techniques aim to repair and regenerate damaged tissues. These may include stem cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, and growth factor therapies.
  • Physical and Occupational Therapy: Our skilled therapists develop personalized exercise and rehabilitation programs to improve strength, mobility, and functionality. They also provide techniques for managing pain, enhancing coordination, and maximizing independence in daily activities.
  • Medication Management: Our physicians carefully prescribe medications to alleviate symptoms, reduce inflammation, and slow down disease progression. We closely monitor their efficacy and adjust treatment plans as needed to ensure optimal results.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: We emphasize the importance of healthy lifestyle choices in managing degenerative disorders. Our team provides guidance on nutrition, exercise, stress management, and other lifestyle modifications to support overall well-being and enhance treatment outcomes.


Holistic Support and Patient Education

We believe that education and support are crucial components of managing degenerative disorders. Our clinic provides comprehensive resources, educational materials, and support groups to empower patients and their families with knowledge and strategies to navigate the challenges associated with these conditions. We are committed to fostering a compassionate and nurturing environment where patients feel heard, understood, and supported throughout their treatment journey.
