Epidural Steroid Injection

An epidural steroid injection (ESI) places pain-relieving medicines into the space around the spinal cord and nerve roots. The injection combines a local anesthetic for immediate pain relief with a corticosteroid for greater comfort in the long-term.

Facet Joint Injections

The facet joint is where a vertebra connects with another. Injecting an anesthetic and/or corticosteroid in the facet joint can relieve pain in the back and other areas of the body.

Knee Injection

Knee injections supplement the joint’s natural lubrication, helping the joint move more smoothly and comfortably.

Radiofrequency Ablation

A non-invasive therapy that uses electrical current produced by a radio wave to heat the nerve tissue in the targeted area, interrupting and decreasing the pain signals the nerves are sending out.

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Implantation of a tiny device that sends electrical impulses into the space around the spinal column and nerve roots can reduce chronic back pain and/or limb pain. This is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure.

Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

A minimally-invasive surgical procedure to implant a device that introduces electrical impulses along the peripheral nerves (those outside the spinal cord and brain, running throughout the arms, legs and other parts of the body), to reduce chronic pain.

Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injection

A lumbar epidural steroid injection (LESI) places pain-relieving medicines into the space around the spinal cord and nerve roots in the lumbar region of the spine (lower back.)

Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection

A cervical epidural steroid injection (CESI) places pain-relieving medicines into the space around the spinal cord and nerve roots in the cervical region of the spine (neck and upper back.)

Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection

Transforaminal ESI is a precisely-targeted injection that delivers pain-relieving medicine into the neural foramen that contains the pain-causing nerve root. The foramen is the opening between vertebrae where spinal nerve roots exit to other parts of the body.

Shoulder Injections

An injection of local anesthetic and a corticosteroid into the shoulder joint can help reduce shoulder pain caused by a variety of disorders.

Sacroiliac Joint Injection

You have two sacroiliac joints (SI joint) in your lower back, one on each side of your spine where it meets your pelvis. These joints carry the weight of your upper body, so physical stress and injury can cause chronic pain, as can arthritis in the SI joint.

Discogram / Discography

A discogram is a test to evaluate back pain and determine if an abnormal disc in your spine is the cause of your pain. By injecting dye into the soft center of the disc and viewing the result on a CT scan or x-ray, your doctor can see if the disc is damaged or deteriorated.

Dorsal Root Ganglion Therapy

The dorsal root ganglion (DRG) is a small bundle of nerves located just outside the spinal cord. The DRG may be responsible for the over-stimulating the central nervous system, producing chronic pain in other parts of the body.
