Lumbar Procedures

Mild Procedure

Percutaneous Lysis Of Adhesions (Mechanical And Chemical)

Ganglion Impar

Ganglion Impar

The ganglion impar is a cluster of nerve cells in front of the joint between the sacrum and the coccyx. This procedure is used to reduce the symptoms of chronic pelvic or rectal pain by blocking nerve impulses. Although uncommon, risks include bleeding, infection, nerve injury and allergic reaction to the medication.

Celiac Plexus Block

Celiac Plexus Block

Celiac Plexus Block are injections of pain medication that help relieve abdominal pain, commonly due to cancer or chronic pancreatitis. The celiac plexus is a bundle of nerves that surrounds the aorta, the main artery into your abdomen.

Lumbar sympathetic block

Lumbar Sympathetic Block

A lumbar sympathetic block is an injection of local anesthetic into or around the sympathetic nerves. These sympathetic nerves are a part of the sympathetic nervous system.

SI Joint Injection

SI Joint Injection

A diagnostic SI joint injection is used to confirm a suspected diagnosis of sacroiliac joint dysfunction. This is done by numbing the sacroiliac joint with local anesthetic.

Percutaneous Disc Decompression

Percutaneous Disc Decompression

Stryker Disc Decompression is a minimally invasive procedure that relieves pain and restores previous levels of activity without open surgery.

Vertebroplasty

Vertebroplasty

Vertebroplasty is an outpatient procedure for stabilizing compression fractures in the spine. Bone cement is injected into back bones (vertebrae) that have cracked or broken, often because of osteoporosis.

Discograms

Discograms

Discography is an interventional diagnostic imaging test that helps determine whether a specific intervertebral disc may be the source of back pain. Intervertebral discs are sponge-like cushions between the vertebrae, or bones, of the spine.

RadioFrequency Rhizotomy

RadioFrequency Rhizotomy

Radiofrequency (RF) rhizotomy or neurotomy is a therapeutic procedure designed to decrease and/or eliminate nerve pain symptoms that have not responded to more conservative pain treatments. The procedure involves destroying the nerves causing the pain with highly localized heat generated with radiofrequency.

Diagnostic Medial Branch Nerve Injections

Diagnostic Medial Branch Nerve Injections

A medial branch nerve block is a procedure in which an anesthetic is injected near small medial nerves connected to a specific facet joint.

Facet Joint injections

Facet Joint injections

A cervical, thoracic or lumbar facet joint injection involves injecting a small amount of local anesthetic (numbing agent) and/or steroid medication, which can anesthetize the facet joints and block the pain.

Transforaminal Injections

Transforaminal Injections

A transforaminal injection is an injection of long acting steroid into the opening at the side of the spine where a nerve roots.

Nerve Root Blocks

Nerve Root Blocks

Nerve Root Blocks is an injection of local anesthetic (numbing medicine) and steroid injected under X-ray guidance into the area where the nerve exits the spinal column.

Epidural Steroid Injection

Epidural Steroid Injection is a minimally invasive procedure that can help relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain caused by inflamed spinal nerves. ESI may be performed to relieve pain caused by spinal stenosis, spondylolysis, or disc herniation.
