Howie Bartz founded Meditech in 2007 after several years as a physical therapist. Currently serving as the company’s president, Howie Bartz oversees the distribution of various products, including a compounding cream that helps with inflammation.
Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are “made from scratch” – individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This method allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient’s specific needs. The process of creating a topical cream with multiple medications has shown to be very effective at treating localized pain and symptoms while minimizing side-effects.
Compounding medications have been used with great success for patients that have suffered from back, neck and knee pain. Howie Bartz and the team at Meditech have developed specific formulations that have shown great success of treating patients requiring pain management. Commonly used formulations will include pain medications (both narcotic and non-narcotic), anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxers, and neuropathics.
Physicians and patients have embraced the therapeutic benefits of these medications while minimizing the side effects since the medications are not ingested. It also allows the use of narcotic pain medications without the potential of addiction and abuse.
Our outcome studies have shown that over 80% of our patients have received benefits from these compound creams.
These medications are covered by most insurance companies.
