Sympathetic Blocks - Cervical, Thoracic, and Lumbar

Electrodiagnostic Testing - NCV/EMG for Radiculopathy, Plexopathy, and Entrapment Neuropathy

Spinal Cord Stimulator Trials - Cervical, Thoracic, and Lumbar

This procedure is performed to relieve leg pain caused by complex regional pain syndromes, which may develop after an injury to a joint or limb. Usually a series of injections are needed to treat the problem.

Lumbar Discography

This injection procedure is performed to relieve low back and radiating leg pain. The steroid medication can reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by spinal conditions such as spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, sciatica and herniated discs.

Discography, also called discogram, is a diagnostic procedure used to determine if back pain is caused by one or more discs. The procedure involves pressurizing discs with an injection of sterile liquid to induce pain in the affected discs. Discography helps the specialist plan a course of treatment.

Routine Epidural Steroid Injections - Cervical, Thoracic, and Lumbar

This injection procedure is performed to relieve pain caused by arthritis in the sacroiliac joint where the spine and hip bone meet. The steroid medication can reduce swelling and inflammation in the joint.

Frequently Asked Questions

Vertebral discs are the spinal column's shock absorbers. The discs cushion the vertebral bones and allow the spine to twist and bend. Vertebral discs are composed of two main parts, a soft inner nucleus (nucleus pulposis) and a tough, fibrous outer wall (annulus fibrosis).

Radiofrequency Thermal Coagulation (RFTC) - Cervical , Thoracic, and Lumbar

Occipital Nerve Blocks / C2 Ganglion Blocks

This minimally-invasive procedure, also called radiofrequency (RF) rhizotomy, reduces or eliminates the pain of damaged facet joints by disrupting the medial branch nerves that carry the pain signals. This procedure is performed with local anesthetic.

This injection procedure is performed to relieve low back and radiating leg pain. Steroid medication can reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by spinal conditions.

Ultrasound Guided Injections 

Spinal cord stimulation (also called SCS) uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain of the back, arms and legs. It is believed that electrical pulses prevent pain signals from being received by the brain. SCS candidates include people who suffer from neuropathic pain and for whom conservative treatments have failed.

Each vertebra in the spine is connected to the vertebra above and below it by facet joints, which are located on both sides of the rear of the spine. A facet joint block can be both diagnostic and therapeutic for back or neck pain. A facet joint block injection can confirm whether the facet joints are indeed the source of pain and can help relieve the pain and inflammation.

This outpatient diagnostic test is used to evaluate the health of muscles and the nerves, called motor neurons, which control the muscles. EMG is a valuable diagnostic device for determining the cause of muscle weakness and for identifying neurologic disorders.


Tips for the day of procedure:

  • Wear comfortable shorts and short sleeve t-shirt.
  • Leave jewelry at home.
  • If you take blood thinners, you may opt not to take them for 24 hours prior to procedure if it’s okay with the prescribing doctor. Expect some bruising.
  • You may take all your medications, eat, and drink as normal prior to procedure.
  • You may drive yourself to this procedure.
