Epidural Steroid Injections

Thoracic Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection

The Thoracic Transforaminal  injection procedure relieves pain in the upper back, ribs, and abdomen caused by a pinched nerve (or nerves) in the thoracic spine.

The Cervical Epidural Steroid injection relieves pain in the neck, shoulders, and arms caused by a pinched nerve (or nerves) in the cervical spine. Conditions such as herniated discs and spinal stenosis can compress nerves, causing inflammation and pain.

The Caudal Epidural procedure is an injection of a steroid-anesthetic medication through an opening in the sacrum.

Lumbar Epidural injections are performed to relieve low back and radiating leg pain.

Kyphoplasty (Balloon Vertebroplasty)

This minimally-invasive procedure repairs a vertebral compression fracture. It helps restore the spine’s natural shape. Some patients experience rapid pain relief after the procedure.

Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant

Spinal Cord Stimulator ImplantSpinal cord stimulation (also called SCS) uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain of the back, arms and legs. It is believed that electrical pulses prevent pain signals from being received by the brain. SCS candidates include people who suffer from neuropathic pain and for whom conservative treatments have failed.

 

Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Discs

Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Discs

Spinal discs allow your spine to bend and twist. These flexible shock absorbers can be damaged by injury, disease, or the added stress that can result from a spinal fusion. But stem cell therapy may help. It uses parts of your own blood to help repair disc damage. It can slow disc degeneration. It may help you avoid surgery.

Superion® InterSpinous Spacer (Vertiflex)

Superion® InterSpinous Spacer (Vertiflex)

This is an implant that lifts and separates your vertebrae. It’s used to treat lumbar spinal stenosis. That’s a narrowing of the space around your spinal nerves in your lower back. The Superion implant makes more room for these nerves, relieving painful compression.
