Interventional medicine for pain offers milimetrically precise alternatives of treatments performed under direct visualization (fluoroscopy, ct or ultrasound) that can be done while the patient is twilight sedated (patient does not feel the procedure), oral sedation (patient feels but is less anxious) or local anesthesia). These treatments are very powerful due its precision and have minimal to no impact in the rest of your body
Low back pain, neck pain, sciatica or sciatic leg pain, arthritis of the spine (neck, low back), disc disease (herniation, degeneration), spinal stenosis (narrowing of the main spinal canal), pinched nerves, persistent pain after shingles, vertebral fractures, etc.
The goal of our specialty is to cure or at least diminish the pain, improve function, improve ability to perform daily activities, reduce the need of pain medications and to diagnose/find the source of pain.
It varies depending on the diagnosis and patient. Most patients have permanent degeneration or aging of the spine and other structures. In this situation, we help reducing the impact of the chronic pain in patient’s life.
