Thoracic Procedures

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.

Lumbar Discogram

Discograms

Discograms is an interventional diagnostic imaging test that helps determine whether a specific intervertebral disc may be the source of back pain.

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.

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. Typically several levels of the spine are injected in one procedure.

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 exits. This opening is known as a foramen. 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.

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.

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.
