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

Nerve Root Blocks

Nerve Root Blocks

A nerve root block 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. A nerve root block is usually ordered by your doctor for pain in the arm or leg that follows the path of a single nerve.

Epidural Steroid Injection

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.

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.

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.

Piriformis Block

Piriformis Block

Piriformis Block is a common cause of buttock and posterior leg pain. Pain in these areas can begin spontaneously or after an injury. The symptoms are commonly seen in patients with other inflammatory conditions and in patients who sit for most of their work day.

Occipital Nerve Blocks

Occipital Nerve Blocks

An occipital nerve block is an injection of a steroid or other medication around the greater and lesser occipital nerves that are located on the back of the head just above the neck area.

Scar Neuroma Injections

Scar Neuroma Injections

A neuroma injection is used to reduce pain in the foot, mainly in and around the joints of the toes.

Gassarian Ganglion Blockade

Gassarian Ganglion Blockade

A gasserian ganglion block is performed if the desire is to make the face numb. By placing local anesthetic (novocaine) around the gasserian ganglion, the patient should feel numbness in the face. This may help determine if the facial pain they are feeling can be reduced.

Botox and Myobloc Injections

Botox and Myobloc Injections For Pain

A therapeutic nerve block is used for treatment of severe pain. The block is placed by injecting a local anesthetic substance like Bupivacaine or Lidocaine together with anti-inflammatory medication such as the steroid preparation Dexamethasone. This mixture interrupts and blocks the pain signals sent to the brain from that specific nerve, causing it to feel numb.

All joint and bursa injections (Hip/Shoulder/Knee/Sacroiliac, etc.)

Peripheral nerve blocks: Suprascapular, Occipital, Ilio-inguinal, Intercoastal, Supratrochlear, Supraorbital, Infraorbital, Mental, Genitofemoral, etc.

Intrathecal Infusion Pumps

Baclofen and Morphine Intrathecal Infusion Pumps

Baclofen and Morphine Intrathecal Infusion Pump is a medical device used to deliver medications directly into the space between the spinal cord and the protective sheath surrounding the spinal cord.

Pyriformis Injection

Pyriformis Injection

A piriformis steroid injection is an injection of a long lasting steroid into the piriformis muscle of your buttock. This muscle attaches to the side of the sacrum, which is the side, flat bone at the base of your spine just above your tailbone.

There is a small sleeve of the epidural space that extends out over the nerve root for a short distance. This epidural root sleeve is just outside the spinal canal. Sometimes these injections are referred to as root sleeve blocks, root blocks or transforaminal epidural blocks.
