Disc Decompression

A less invasive option for patients suffering from low back and leg pain due to contained disc herniations

Discography

A diagnostic procedure in which a needle is placed into a lumbar disc to identify whether there is an internal disc disruption. 

Dorsal Column and Spinal Cord Stimulators

Devices that override painful nerve signals.

Epidural Steroid Injection

An epidural steroid injection treats nerve irritation caused by nearby tissues pressing on the nerve. The inflamed nerve root is bathed in steroids, an anti-inflammation medicine, to decrease the irritation of the nerve root that is causing the pain.

Facet Joint Injections

Administered both for a therapeutic and diagnostic purpose, and can, as with the epidural steroid injections, be targeted to the cervical, thoracic or lumbar areas

Pain Stimulator Insertion (Spinal Cord Stimulation)

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) creates an electrical field over the spinal cord, which blocks pain that comes from damage to the nervous system. 

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive procedure treating dysplastic (precancerous) Barrett's esophagus.

Sacroiliac Joint Injection

An injection of an anesthetic with a long lasting steroid mixture into the sacroiliac joints, which are located in the back where the lumbosacral spine joins the pelvis.

Shockwave Therapy: Elbow and Heel

Shockwave therapy uses strong sound waves to induce “microtrauma” to tissues to relieve heel pain caused by plantar faciitis or elbow pain caused by tendinopathy, also called tennis elbow. The microtrauma initiates a healing response in the body.
