Epidural Blood Patch

An epidural blood patch is an injection of your blood into the epidural space. The injection of a freshly drawn sample of your own blood into the epidural space “plugs the leak” and the headache goes away.

Epidural Steroid Block

An epidural steroid injection is an injection of an anti-inflammatory steroid into the epidural space.

Facet Joint Injection

The facet joints, also known as the zygapophysial joints, are part of the bony framework of the spine. A facet joint injection is an injection of an anti-inflammatory steroid.

Intercostal Nerve Block

An intercostal nerve block is a block of the nerves that lie underneath the lower edge of each rib.

Lumbar Sympathetic Block

Lumbar sympathetic nerves are a small bundle of nerves that carries sympathetic nerve signals from the lower extremities.

Learn More →

Medial Branch Block

Medial branch nerves supply sensation to the facet joints.  Facet joints are part of the bony framework of the spine.

Other Joint Injections

The medicine used in a joint injection is a mixture of local anesthetic and steroid.  The medicine reduces inflammation and pain.

Radiofrequency Lesioning

Radiofrequency lesioning is a procedure in which special needles are used to create lesions along selected nerves. The procedure disrupts nerve conduction, reducing pain, and related symptoms.

Sacroiliac Joint Injection

The sacroiliac is a joint located between the tailbone ("sacrum") and pelvic bone ("ileum"). Thus, the name "sacroiliac" joint comes from the two bones that make up the joint.

Selective Nerve Root Block

Along the spine, there are several "holes" or "foramina" through which nerve roots emerge. If these foramina are partially closed from bulging disks, bone spurs, misalignment of vertebrae, etc., the nerve root can also be pinched. This typically causes a shooting or radiating pain along that nerve root.

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation is offered to patients with chronic and severe neuropathic pain. It is for patients who have not responded to other treatment modalities.

Stellate Ganglion Block

The "stellate ganglion" is a small bundle of nerves that carries "sympathetic" nerve signals from the upper extremities. Injuries to the upper extremities can cause a burning pain called complex regional pain syndrome or reflex sympathetic dystrophy.

Vertebroplasty

Many people experience a compression fracture of the vertebra, one of the bones in the spine. Fractures can be due to osteoporosis, traumatic injury, or cancer. These fractures can be painful and progression of the fracture can affect other functions of the body, like good posture or proper breathing.
