About Dr. Bartsch
Dr. John Bartsch specializes in the non-operative management of tendon, joint, and spine disorders. He joined Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine in 2011 as an interventional orthopedist, providing expertise in minimally invasive procedures. Dr. Bartsch’s goal is to help reduce pain and maximize patients’ function.
As an interventional orthopedist, his focus is the conservative treatment for spine and joint related conditions, as well as minimally invasive treatment for tendon pain. Prior to advancing to surgical options it is his philosophy to obtain a clear diagnosis, understanding his patients concerns and needs and implementing the most appropriate treatment plan focusing initially on conservative treatments.
His professional interests include diagnostic and interventional ultrasound, fluoroscopic spinal procedures, sports concussions, and orthobiologics (including neural prolotherapy). He is also a provider of the Tenex Health TX system and can treat pain associated with tendon damage of the shoulder, elbow, knee, achilles tendonitis (also called tendonosis), hip bursitis, or plantar fasciitis.

platelet injections is a concentration of platelets and growth factors created from a small amount of your own blood or bone marrow.

Genicular Nerve Radiofrequency Ablation
Radiofrequency ablation is performed while the patient is awake but sedated. To begin, the area to be treated is numbed with a local anesthetic. Using x-ray guidance, the doctor will insert a needle and electrode into the treatment location. After confirming correct placement, a high-frequency electrical current is passed through the electrode, heating up and lesioning the sensory nerve. Once the procedure is complete, the needle and electrode are removed.Read More
Epidural Spine Injection
Epidural Spine Injections are a great option for someone looking for non-operative or minimally invasive methods to treating spine pain. Minimally invasive treatments have grown in popularity as medicine has continued to evolve. Epidural steroid injections are a common treatment option for many forms of lower back pain and leg pain. They continue to be an integral part of non-operative treatment options for a variety of spinal conditions.Read More
“He is a very good doctor. I highly recommend him. He takes the time to make sure you are getting the help you need. He really cares about his patients and wants them to get better. My wife also went to him and has had a similar experience.”
“I came to see Dr. Bartsch because of pretty intense pain in left Achilles area… The recovery process was just a few weeks, I removed the boot after two weeks… One time and out: the pain was gone! The folks at Beacon, everyone that I met from the receptionist at the front to the nurses and support staff and the doctors, it was top notch.”
– Gary B.
