Pain Management

Interventional pain management involves special procedures to treat and manage pain. Interventional procedures might include an injection of an anesthetic medicine or steroid around nerves, tendons, joints or muscles and spinal cord stimulation. Many interventional procedures are performed under fluoroscopy to provide the physician with the best diagnostic information.

Some of the procedures we perform include:

  • Cervical, Lumbar and Transforaminal Epidural blocks
  • Trigger Points
  • Stellate blocks
  • Peripheral Nerve Blocks
  • Facet Joint injections
  • Hip, knee, shoulder injections
  • Lumbar sympathetic blocks
  • Lidocaine infusion therapy
  • Temporary neurostimulators
