Accurate diagnosis for a mysterious class of core injuries

The Vincera Institute was founded by Dr. William C. Meyers, the pioneer in the field of core medicine. He literally wrote the book on core injuries. Two decades ago, Dr. Meyers worked with leading radiologists at Thomas Jefferson University to develop ground breaking MR imaging techniques and protocols dedicated to the diagnosis of core muscle injuries. The team's experience with more than 10,000 dedicated MRI exams for core muscle injuries, combined with the latest imaging technology, have led to highly accurate diagnoses, better treatment and greater chances of full recovery.

Using a specialized imaging protocol, the team at Vincera can determine if you are suffering from a core injury and define what structures are involved.

A multispecialty approach to getting you back in the game

Our concern for your injury doesn't end when you leave the operating room. It continues through your physical therapy appointments, through follow-up visits and through a range of other services offered such as sports psychology and healthy lifestyle consultations.
