EPIDURAL STEROID INJECTIONS

Epidural steroid injections (ESI) are performed to place anti-inflammatory medication (steroids) and local anesthetic in the epidural space to target irritated nerves and relieve pain. They are most commonly performed for patients with spine pain and radiating pain in the arms or legs.

FACET JOINT INJECTIONS & RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION

The facet joints are small joints on the back of your spine and are found in all levels from your neck to your low back. Facet joint pain is usually due to arthritis or degeneration of the joints. It is typically described as an ache that stays along the spine and is worse with prolonged sitting, standing or driving. 

JOINT INJECTIONS FOR KNEE, HIP, & SHOULDER

If you have joint pain due to osteoarthritis, your physician may recommend joint injections as part of your treatment plan. Injections of steroid and local anesthetic can provide good, lasting relief of pain arising from any peripheral joint, including the knees, hips, shoulders and elbows.

SACROILIAC (SI) JOINT INJECTIONS AND RADIOFREQUENCY ABLATION

The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is formed where your pelvic bones join to the base of the spine, or sacrum. This joint can be a source of pain like any other joint, and it may cause hip, low-back or buttock pain.

SPINAL CORD STIMULATION

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is an advanced procedure that has evolved in clinical use since the late 1960’s. It involves the placement of programmable electrodes into the epidural space where they emit signals to the spinal cord to mask pain signals.

TRIGGER POINT INJECTIONS

This procedure, which does not require x-ray or ultrasound guidance, is for the treatment of painful areas of muscle tension or spasm. Muscle spasms in the neck, low or middle back can be quite painful and may persist for weeks to months.

VISCOSUPPLEMENTATION

Viscosupplementation is a highly effective treatment for osteoarthritis (OA), also referred to as “wear and tear” arthritis. It is commonly performed for knee osteoarthritis.

ANTERIOR CERVICAL DISCECTOMY AND FUSION (ACDF)

A surgical procedure through the front of the neck removes the intervertebral disc in order to decompress the spinal cord and nerve roots. The disc is then replaced by a graft to fuse the bones together.

TOTAL DISC REPLACEMENT

Similar to an ACDF, the intervertebral disc is removed and then replaced with an artificial disc. 

POSTERIOR CERVICAL DECOMPRESSION AND FUSION

A surgical procedure through the back of the neck relieves the pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots. It is then stabilized with hardware.

CERVICAL LAMINOPLASTY

A surgical procedure that is intended to relieve pressure on the spinal cord. The spinal canal is then held open using a small plate and screws.

LUMBAR MICRODISCECTOMY

A surgical procedure to remove a portion of the disc that is causing pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots.

LUMBAR DECOMPRESSION

A surgical procedure to remove bone/disc that is causing pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots.

LUMBAR DECOMPRESSION AND FUSION

After lumbar decompression is performed, the spinal canal is then stabilized with a bone graft and/or instrumentation
