If patient get a period of sustained pain relief from the injection (depending on the local anesthetic used), the block may be repeated to confirm the underlying pathology. It is often performed to help identify whether surgery might be helpful and at what level surgery might be most helpful.
This type of block is generally a collaborative effort between a spinal surgeon and a pain management specialist to help identify the root cause of ongoing symptoms before surgical intervention.
While we ARE accepting NEW patients for Interventional Pain Treatment options, we are UNABLE to accept NEW patients for OPIOID medication management at this time.
We are always committed to providing the most honest compassionate care possible to all our patients
