John O. Watson, M.D.
"My clinical focus is on the evaluation and management of non-operative musculoskeletal disorders, particularly spinal pain and sports injuries. I have expertise in using both fluoroscopy and ultrasound for interventional procedures like spinal and joint injections. I also utilize EMGs to assist in properly diagnosing peripheral nerve injuries."
